This is a guest article by Amy Pennington on the LiveDan330 website. She discusses the basics of starting seeds indoors. If you start seeds early, then you’re getting a head start on planting and will be able to harvest earlier.

Amy discusses grow lights, which help provide the 12 hours of daily light that seedlings need once they push up out of the soil. This is an example of a good grow light: Hydrofarm FLCDG125D Fluorowing Compact Fluorescent System

Amy then explores seed trays, warmth, moisture, sterile seed-starting mix, and placement. Finally, describes each step of sowing seeds in a seed tray.
