Seed sowing 2018 summers

Post by Izhar » March 20th, 2018, 11:22 am

Growing from seeds is an ultimate joy.. I prepared the seed sowing media by mixing fresh baalu mitti, peat moss, cocopeat & well rotted manure in equal parts.. filled 75% pots with fresh baalu mitti and manure mixture and top 25% with seed sowing media.. I sifted the seed sowing media to remove all he large particles..

What is seed sowing media that you have mentioned.
I havent been that lucky in seed germination. Obviously i used just manure and mitti. Maybe watering is wrong or my soil mix
