Indoor and Outdoor Seed Sowing

Garden seeds offer gardeners of all interests and abilities a simple and cost-effective method of growing new plants. Whether it is the latest and greatest new garden flower variety or a tried-and-true vegetable variety, seeds are an excellent option for starting new plants for your garden.

Outdoor Garden Seed Sowing

Outdoor garden seeds may be planted directly into the garden soil at the appropriate time of the season, beginning in March. Seed germination requirements are particular to each type of seed but require the proper temperature and the moisture conditions around the seed for good germination. Read the seed packet information for details of all types of seeds for when to sow seeds, seed planting depth and seed spacing for best results.

Outside sowing begins in March for early perennial flowers including columbine, lupine, echinacea and wildflower mixes.

Indoor Garden Seed Sowing

Indoor seed sowing for tender plants that take a longer time to get started like peppers and tomatoes, pansies and snapdragons may be planted indoors at this time of the year and grown into starter plants that will then be planted outdoors as the weather warms up.

Sow pepper and pansy seeds now, but hold off till late March/ early April to sow tomato seeds so that they do not get too leggy and stringy inside before outside planting time.

Indoor seed starting conditions require a location with bright light to keep the seedlings growing healthy and strong. This means right in a window for good natural light. Grow lights are very helpful for providing additional light for the plants if strong window light is not available. Use growing containers with good quality potting soil for germination and growing on as starter plants. Water regularly and apply fertilizer as directed on package.
