4 Gardening Product Recommendations | Jon’s Garden

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.

I’m Growing A Cherry Tree – Jon’s Garden

I think I might be a little obsessed with growing things. Everything that produces a seed that comes into the house I need to immediately plant those seeds in the ground.

Well, the lady brought cherries from the market yesterday so now I’m in the process of germinating 14 seed from the cherries she’s eaten already. Also, there is a mandate in the house to NOT throw away the seeds until I have inspected them!

So now I have 8 seeds going the stratification process.  Seeds need to go through the same processes they would normally go through in nature. For cherry seeds, they go through a cold period and that is simulated by putting the seeds in the refrigerator. I had to do the same with my apple seeds. You can check out how they are doing here.

The other 5 I’ll just experiment with other forms of germinating in hopes to speed up the process.
