    Don’t you need to label it?

  6. You dont have too. It is nice big leaf plant that grows nicely. It will take on size quickly once in the ground.

    What if you over seed sage?

  8. What country?

  9. In my region, the gardening season is in winter. Because summer is too hot!

  10. Yep. Planting inside does make the blizzards a bit more warm.

  11. Nice job, this was informative and helpful from a blizzard is blowing outside at Full Circle Farm Maine. We just planted our herbs.

  12. I am actually going to shoot an new video series in like 10 minutes called 2 minute Garden Tips. I am doing the first tip as preparing seed starting mix and bottom watering. To answer your question…. pre wet it for all seeds. Water it from the bottom not on top. Fill the seed tray 1/3 with water and what every isnt absorb after 20-30 minutes dump out. All this will be in next video… weird you asked as I am setting it up.

  13. Thanks for the great information Gary. I am going to sow my own herbs this year and I already learned something new from this video. Now do you wet the seed starting mix for all your plants and veggies or just the herbs? And how do you know how much water to put in the soil to wet it? Do you just sprinkle it in or pour it or what?
    Thanks from a fellow gardener. Bev

  14. I just subscribed to your channel! Awesome videos :) I also make gardening videos on youtube :)

  15. Good Point. These seeds happen to germinate clearly for identification. But tomatoes…. oh no! So label is right.

  16. DON’T FORGET TO LABEL EACH CONTAINER! lol Great information on HOW TO SEED, especially the tips on pre- moistening the mix and bottom watering.

  17. The light helps and might as well get some gardening done too. Good luck
