You aren’t going to get any long, drawn-out posts about how my cat likes to smell daffodils while sitting on the window sunbathing. I like to get straight to the point. You are here for some recommendations and I’m here to give them to you.
One of the most important gardening aids I have bought so far – a heating pad. Some seeds require cold temperatures to germinate while others require some heat. This heating pad has proved to be invaluable for germinating and is a must-have for any gardener to germinate indoors, year-round.
Next up are these plastic nursery pots. I use them in combination with the trays at the bottom of this post.
Seed starting trays. Also used in combination with the trays below. Great for starting seeds.
Plant trays! Every gardener needs them.
Started germinating apple seeds from a store-bought apple. The plan is to grow at least one apple tree. I’m pretty excited to see them start to germinate. I learned that it’s best to germinate then in the refrigerator. Keeping them in the refrigerator simulates cold stratifying. Certain seeds naturally go through a winter phase where they are in the ground during the winter months and slowly germinate then when the weather gets warmer the germination process seeds up. It was quite an interesting thing to learn.
