Seed starting tip #1: Don't skip the plant labels
Monday, April 1, 2013
This year my plant markers are cut out of an empty white plastic jug, but I have also heard that broken mini blinds work well. If you are not into scrounging in the junk pile, they aren't expensive to buy either. The "hassle" of marking every plant is worth it to avoid mix ups. I will often move plants around on the tray as they are growing so they are getting even light and don't end up leaning sideways. I may be able to tell an onion from a marigold, but I can't tell a beefsteak tomato from a roma tomato. In the past I have accidentally planted a Super Sweet 100 tomato instead of a Sungold, which was a tragedy, because it meant that I had one less Sungold growing in my garden than I could have had.
