General Seed Starting Method 17 February 2009 General Seed Starting Method

General seed starting method. Containers are plastic cups with drain holes made with a soldering iron. Coffee filters contain the earth and tend to keep the roots together, when transplanting. Plastic bags create a mini-greenhouse that means no care until germination occurs. The marking system functions for more than 2 years without undue fading.

Experience has indicated that germination rates approach 100%, and this method is ideal for the small home garden grower. The seeds selected for this example are luffa.

Interesting Durgan. I was just mentioned your coffee filter method on the Morning Glory thread. I used this method last season for Morning Glories. They transplanted beautifully! Thanks for the tip! I am doing this again! :D
