How To Start Seeds Indoors

Starting your own garden from seeds is an easy and inexpensive way to grow vegetables and flowers. Lowe's shows you how to start seeds indoors. First, add seed starting mix to peat pots. You can also use a seed starting flat or you can reuse old yogurt cups or egg cartons. Seed-starting mix is formulated to help build strong roots fast. Second, use a pencil to make a hole half an inch deep in each peat pot. Then, drop one seed in each hole. Cover each seed slightly with soil.Water each seed. Be sure to water gently to avoid washing away the seeds. Finally, set the peat pots near a light source. Keep the temperature between 70-85 degrees to give the seeds the best chance to germinate. After the danger of frost outdoors has passed, you can break the peat pots apart and plant them directly in the ground. The peat pot dissolves underground.
