Today I started seeds for the backyard beds
The rest are done using home-made seed starting mix in cow pots. At the recommendation of an employee at my local nursery who has tried it and had success, I used:
- 2/3 coir (rehydrated and squeezed out)
- 1/3 perlite
- big handful of compost (I held both hands together around it)
I used Leafgro, a bagged compost made locally here in Maryland from municipally collected leaves. I was using a 4-cup measuring cup to scoop, so that tells you how much of the other stuff there was to the compost.
