 Gardener's Network Garden Blog

Welcome to the newest gardening section of The Gardener's Network... our Garden Blog! We're talking gardening of all kinds. Our garden blog strives to offer you the latest garden information and tips on a timely, seasonal basis.

Our Very First Garden Blog:

Let's talk about starting seeds. After all, it 'tis the season. Right now many us are planting, or have recently started our indoor transplants. It's a gardening "rite of spring", a fun task that we don't want to leave to the garden stores.   

You can grow your own plants to transplant into the garden. Like new parents, it is fun, yet anxious time, as we tend to every need of our baby seedlings, and pamper them, to assure they grow strong and healthy. In addition to the joy of watching your baby seedlings grow and thrive, you'll save money along the way.

Over the next several weeks, we'll be planting and pampering our indoor transplants. It's an exciting time, as we finally get our hands into some dirt again after the long winter season.

Did You Know? One of the biggest problems of growing indoor starts, is a lack of sunshine, which results in weak, leggy plants. For optimal growth, most seedling transplants need full sunlight. This begins the moment your seedlings emerge from the ground. If you can't have your plants out on a warm, sunny patio or deck, be a "Sun Chaser". As the sun moves  from east to west during the day, move your seed trays from east facing windows to south facing windows.

The success of the upcoming gardening season, is dependent upon getting your seedling transplants up and growing, in a strong and healthy manner. The extra care and attention you give your seedlings now, will translate into healthier, more plentiful flowers, and a larger, more abundant vegetable crop.

Whether you are a gardening "Newbie", or an experienced, long time gardener, it is a good idea to read and review our Seed Starting Basics. Click Here
