First sow the seeds into containers or pots, cover them with soil and cover them with foil or glass to keep the soil moist. Place the boxes with the sown vegetables in a sunny place such as a windowsill. During the germination period water the plants with water from a sprinkler, wetting the soil only lightly. The plants should be transplanted from pots to the ground at the end of May and the beginning of June
Flowers to be sown in February
Flowers also need time before they can please the eye. Among others, the following should be sown in February
- garden petunias
- lion’s maw
The flower seeds, just like the vegetable seeds, should first be sown in a container and covered with plastic wrap. Sprinkle the soil to keep it moist all the time. Flower seedlings can be transplanted into the garden in May
The work put into sowing plants now, will bear fruit and give us satisfaction only in late spring. However, you have to admit that a spring garden full of flowers and butterflies or a delicious salad of spring vegetables are worth it!
