This year was the first time I tried the vermiculite sowing method described by Jonna. I have sown seeds for years by various methods with mixed results and this method was by far the simplest, cleanest and MOST successful! I would especially recommend this method for everyone but especially if you are new to sowing seeds and for any seeds that are challenging because the success rate was very high.
I particularily like it too because if you cannot get back to your seeds you don’t have to worry about them. I actually sowed seeds and went away for two weeks and everything was fine. Some of my seedlings were held in the vermiculite container for over two months before I got around to potting them up.
I am sold on this method of sowing seeds!
