Spring is finally in the air!!
My seed trays with organic Living Acres Light Mix, a compost based medium that has worked well for me for seed starting. My lights, timers,heat mats a on my metal 6 shelf rack 4’long x 18″deep x 6′ high with 2 4’long dbl flourescent lights hanging over each shelf! I added water to all the trays and I planted the loads of organic seeds : Ashwagandha, Althea, Anise hyssop, Codonopsis,Echinacea,Hyssop,Hypericum,Lavender,Nepata,Verbena and more.The flats are covered with a clear plastic dome and the lights will stay on for 14-16 hours per day and the trays are sprayed with a water mist each morning. Once the seedlings emerge, the covers will come off and the lights will be raised as the plants grow.Growing you own plants is definitely a labor of love and time commitment but “Oh, such lovely unadulterated medicine springs from these tiny seeds!! ”
