Jump Start Your Outdoor Garden Indoors
START YOUR SEEDS IN THE ECO GARDEN HOUSE
Cool spring soil temperatures and cold weather can prevent seeds from germinating or kill young seedlings. If you wait until the weather warms, the plants get off to a late start only to be zapped by fall’s first frost; they don’t get a chance to bear a full crop or to put on a full floral display. You’ll get a jump on the outdoor season in your Eco Garden House and be the first person in town with fresh veggies and blooming flowers when summer finally comes.
Plant propagation is the process of creating new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Germination is the process by which a plant grows from a seed. The most common example of germination is the sprouting of a seedling from a seed of an angiosperm or gymnosperm. However the growth of a sporeling from a spore, for example the growth of hyphae from fungal spores, is also germination.
Propagation/Germination in the Eco Garden House is a simple and economical way of raising new plants for your garden. First master the techniques by sowing annuals in spring that will reward you with flowers in summer, then use these basic skills to grow a variety of vegetables, fruits, perennials, trees and shrubs.
