Seed Starting: Supplies - What You'll Need
Supplies you'll need to start seeds.
Here are the basics of what you'll need to get your garden seeds started:
  1. Containers - Either purchased pots or flats or containers you've saved, like egg cartons and yogurt cups. Used pots should be cleaned and disinfected by soaking in 1 part bleach to 10 parts water.

     

  2. Potting Mix - Seeds do best in a soilless mix where there are fewer inherent problems than with garden soil

     

  3. Seeds - Your choice

     

  4. Labels/markers - Trust me, you won't remember what's what

     

  5. Plastic Bags or Covers - These will trap warmth and humidity where the seeds need it

     

  6. Water

     

  7. Light Source - If you don't have a bright window, you will need some kind of florescent or high density plant light
