Happy Thursday and here I am with my tip of the week for Happy Gardening 🙂
So, when you sow seeds, isn’t that great to see them sprouting early.
Here is a way to make that happen.
When the seeds are dried they develop lot of hard layers. Soaking them in milk(lactose) or water( pref. luke warm) helps in softening the layers and the top layer usually breaks and it helps in quick sprouting.
2. Keep the soil warm
Once you sow the seeds it is important to keep the soil warm and consistent. During days the soil is warm but in the nights when it cools down, it takes lot of time to warm up next morning. So covering the pot with a cling wrap/thin plastic sheet with tiny roles(to let it breathe) would really help in keeping it warm consistently and quick sprouting.
This really helps for all seeds and I was successful with Fenugreek(Methi), Fennel, Tulasi (Holy Basil), Eggplant & Okra.
Happy Easter & Happy weekend!!
