7 Essentials of Seed Starting: an Infographic


Many gardeners want to start seeds more successfully, so my friend Sal and I created this gorgeous infographic for you:

Where do I get…

…the LED grow light that we use? Here.

…easy to use soil blockers to make gorgeous soil blocks? Here.

…organic potting soil? Here

…a heat mat that will change my life? Here.

And for our Ultimate Seed Starting Collection, head here.

What inspired us to make an infographic for you?

Dreaming of the season ahead, my dear friend Kc inspired me to make a list of the 7 essential things she needed to know to start seeds well…

…then I’m scheming to make supper with my dear friend Sal, whose illustrations are as vivid and whimsical as her gardens and stories. Eureka! Sal and I had SO much fun laughing and learning as we brought to life the 7 Essentials of Seed Starting through visual story.

Welcome to Sal’s Garden!

Questions for Sal:

Petra: Whose advice do you always listen to?

Sal: The sunset.

Petra: What is your biggest struggle in the garden?

Sal: Weeds! And soil type. Thank goodness the chipmunks plant the pumpkins.

Petra: What is your favorite vegetable?

Sal:  Zucchini! Is that technically a fruit, though? Then potato.
