IMPORTANT ABOUT SOWING FLOWERS
Usually, the seeds of the bulk of plants are sown no earlier than the end of February or the beginning of March, when daylight hours are already increasing.
After all, even supplementary lighting is not able to provide them with full development.
And by the time of planting in open ground, the seedlings will lag behind those grown in natural light. But there are species whose seeds must be sown earlier.
HOME IS BETTER
You can follow the entire development cycle of a seedling, from seed to adult plant.
A purchased bag of seeds will allow you to grow at least a dozen, and sometimes two, high-quality seedlings. And in any case, it will be much cheaper than buying ready-made plants.
Extended flowering period.
Their seedlings often turn out to be stronger and more resilient. In addition, greenhouse seedlings can react quite badly to a change in “place of residence”.
WHAT DO WE SOW?
Seeds of summer-flowering plants with a long growing season, such as Shabo carnations, eustoma.
Perennials that form tubers. The largest and best stored begonia nodules can be obtained from December or January sowing.
Those in need of stratification are aquilegia, clematis, primrose, irises, alpine bluebells and others.
Perennials with non-simultaneous shoots, such as primrose.
Tugovshozhie seeds of perennials with a dense shell.
Seeds of heat-loving species growing in pots in the house and on the street - balsam, fuchsia, pelargonium.
Annuals intended for early flowering. If petunia and lobelia seeds are sown in January, the first wave of color can be expected as early as early May.
Lack of natural light.
The need to maintain temperature.
Blackleg. Remember: humidity combined with a rather low temperature can provoke its development in seedlings.
CRIB FOR SPRING
reaches flowering age, it is easy to decide when to start sowing.
Knowing in how many days shoots of a certain plant will appear and how soon it
