Starting from Scratch
Love is in there air this week as Valentine’s Day approaches, which feels like the perfect time to establish some new life in the greenhouse! This week while we are planting pots, we are also prepping part of the greenhouse specifically for seed growth. In this batch from Monday morning we sowed Morning Glory, Echinacea, a few sunflower varieties, and some other surprises!
These seed trays will go inside in one of our ‘greenhouses within the greenhouse’ called a Growing House. Inside this house, they will get a little extra love which includes the optimal amount of heat and moisture to sprout! Once they are a good size we can take them out of the growing house to get some air and establish their roots. Once they have the roots they need to continue to grow, we will transplant them to large pots for you and yours to bring home!
This is only one batch out of many other seeds we will be planting here at Ledgeview Greenhouses, we will be posting progress photos as these little babies and thousands of others come into their own so you can see how far they have come!
