Common seed starting mistakes and ways to avoid them.

Let’s move forward with the next part of our urban gardening series and talk about seed starting.

Before we do that here is what we already covered – the basics of apartment gardening, choosing what vegetables to grow and buying from seed companies you can trust.

There are many things to consider when starting your seeds such as the growing media, light conditions and temperature. It can get to be a lot.

So I spoke with Michelle Moore, the owner of The Greenhouse Catalog, a year round online gardening supply company about common seed starting mistakes and ways to avoid them.

In this video, I share with you three tips, plus a bonus one from Moore to help you avoid the most common mistakes when starting your seeds.

Mike Lieberman shows people with little to no land how to start growing their own food so they can avoid toxic pesticides, eat healthier and not feel limited by their lack of experience and space. Connect with him here to learn more urban gardening tips.
