  2. Your seasons all seem into one Marigolds finnish as seedlings start.

  3. Which method do you prefer? It looks like the smaller pots would be easier to transplant :^)

  5. Lovely. Both work but I think little seedlings are adorable in little pots. :)

  6. Dirt Princess .... can always get around seeding. Nurseries are selling baby plants at knock down price!!

    Hocking Hills Gardener .... They are growing happily but so delicate that a miss of watering or too hot a day will see them crying and wrinkling..

    Kim and Victoria ... those are the sawi.

    Joanne ... My garden is small..., therefore plants got to take turn.

    Noelle ... i like the small one better, because transplanting is made so easy: take out the whole thing and put into one hole on vegetable bed.. the seedling then survives better. But I really have to fluff the potting soil first before putting the seeds, to ease the germination.

    Marie ... By all means do come back more often, before your own spring comes.

    Darla ... that's not salvia, but sawi.

    Rebecca @ In The Garden ... they are inspirational in little pots yes, adorable as you said.

    Happy Gardening.

  8. Stephanie .. Seedlings are babies, they look good, they smell good too...., and they exhibit the real zest of life. ~ bangchik

  9. I try to sow individually if I can, I think the plants are healthier for it and it also makes it easier to transplant them.

  10. It's nice to see how it grows in your pots. Made me wonder about the radishes, but I found your latest post and I think it looks good so far =) Don't foget that they do need a lot of water otherwise they will taste bitter instead and you don't want that. Don't let them grow any bigger than an inch/2cm.
    I understand that Bilbo is on the move again. Makes me wonder where he'll turn up this time. His last supper looked tastful and that magasine he was reading, just perfect for a little gardener / gittan

  11. I tend to use small pots. Your seedlings seem to be doing very well - what are you growing?

  12. Jo ... I agree with you on seedlings in little pots.

    Gittan ... Radishes are just fine. They bulge to about an inch now ... i will pull tomorrow, but I am going to leave a few to maturity, see the flowers and collect seeds. Bilbo is going far north. The next post will mention the destination and the host.

  14. Now is definitely the time to seed and plan for the warmer months. I'm still trying to figure out which insect control method to use for my organic garden. What would you recommend? I found this organic bug spray online: http://www.saferbrand.com/store/garden-care/5102

  15. They are looking great in both pots but the tiny ones are so cute :)

  16. So which are you more successful with? I usually use little 2 inch pots and the pot up the ones that make it. My dad who is a very successful gardener, sows his seeds in a large single pot.

    Size of seeding pots reflect the size of garden or farm. My little vegetable garden needs little pots, but i use slightly bigger pots too... definitely small pots look cute.

    The advertisement on pest control spray looks very convincing... Samantha, give it a try, then share with us your success/failure. I used organic pesticide. It is called bio-immunizer. It needs to be sprayed every week.
