Just received my seed order and went to a seed swap in Chestertown MD. What fun! Did I need more seeds? Probably not, but as you surely know, it is a wonderful addiction! Wondering if you just use coir alone without any other additions for growing from seed.
Thanks, Claire for all that you do to bring us joy with your blog!
For seed starting, I just use straight coir. Once the seedlings come up and produce true leaves, then I start to fertilize with a dilute solution. Yes, aren’t those swaps fun?
I tried to leave a comment after a post, but I don’t know how. I don’t have an account at wordpress (and don’t really want one) so I can’t leave a comment. Is there another way to leave one? Thanks so much.
