PLANTING 

Now we get to finally plant our seeds! There's a few steps involved in this process. We broke it down for you so your garden is setup for success! 

Let's plant
our seeds!

  • THE BASICS:
    Now it’s time for the fun part! Use your finger to draw lines into the soil where your labels are placed. Each seed type is going to have its own requirements for how deep to make the lines and how far apart they need to be spaced. Take your seeds and place them into the lines, then cover completely with soil.
  • PLAN OUT YOUR SPACE:
    It’s important to evaluate the space available in your garden for how many seeds you are going to plant. Each kit has plenty of seeds for a wonderful growing season and beyond. What’s great about seeds is that it allows you to truly customize your garden. If you love tomatoes, you can plant more tomato seeds! If you love Spinach, fill your garden with more spinach seeds.

Watering

  • WATERING YOUR SEEDS:
    Remember to water your seeds thoroughly after you have planted them into the soil. You will need to water your seeds at least once a day until the sprouts become established plants. Watering when your seeds are beginning to sprout is really important because the plants are in a fragile state. Once plants become 4-5 inches tall, you may want to reduce your daily watering schedule. Place your finger into the soil of your garden, if the soil is damp, you do not need to water that day. If the soil is dry, water your garden thoroughly.
