TIPS & TRICKS to Growing From Seed

Mary's Heirloom Seeds

Soak your seeds for faster germination

Tomatoes, Peppers, Squash, Eggplant, Okra and Lavender can be soaked for 48 hours before planting
Beans and Corn can be soaked for 4-6 hours (up to 12) before planting

Use fresh, sterile soil for seed germination

Coconut Coir Pellets

Don't leave your seeds or soil water-logged

6-Cell Germination Tray
Use a fan to gently blow on your seedlings if growing indoors
*This can reduce disease and strengthen seedlings*

If you are using a grow light, depending on the type of light, keep the light 2-3 inches above your seedling.
