Step by Step Summer 2013 Seed Germination Process

Post by Asim_Nawaz » April 9th, 2013, 1:43 pm

I can join “Gardening Pakistan forum” on 1st March 2013. After one month reading different articles, tips, share messages with my friends not only promote Gardening as healthy hobby but also give passion to me to do some new in this hobby.
Now, today I can decide to provide information especially for new comers who can join this form and have passion to have beautiful flowers and plants at their home.
Every flowering and vegetable plants can grow through seeds. Today My topic is “How to Germinate Seeds at home until transplant in little pots”…
Starting seeds is easy, fun and can be very rewarding. All one needs is a little soil, sand, a container, bright spot, and finally the healthy fresh seeds. Then follow-up watering to keep the seeds moist until it germinates. Moisten with a light spray of water, finally needed proper temperatures should range about 20 Centigrade in day and 12 Centigrade at night. After the new seedlings have formed a couple of sets of true leaves they can be individually potted.
Before germinating seeds first to know the directions on the back of the seed packet. The directions should tell you everything you need to know about how to seed, when, where, germination time, how much days required for germination. But in our local seeds packet lack of information having seed at the proper depth, spacing and transplanting information.
According to my topic I can provide information not only germinating seeds but also step by step information through images that can help for my friends and viewers.
After joining first March, 2013, arrival of Spring, full blooms of winter flowering seeds. I plan to germinate flowering and vegetable seeds for Summer 2013..
I can purchase packet of flowering seeds like Zinnia, Coleus, Morning Glory. One packet of Herb seed like “Basil” and also vegetable seeds like Egg Plant, Lady Finger, Bitter Gourd and Kali Tori.
I started to grow all my seeds on 15th March. March become true month to grow flowering as well as vegetable seeds for Summer. Temperature at that time will be 20 Centigrade day and 12 Centigrade at night. Grow seeds in little containers, place in partial shade only morning light for 2 to 3 hours. Keep them moist in morning as well as second time before 5:00 PM until germinate seeds. Finally becomes true leaves mean when my seedling having 2 to 3 fresh leaves ready to transplant into little pots.
Here my step by step pictures from germination date to transplanting date.
Seeds growing dated 15 March, 2013....
After 7 days my Summer flowering as well as vegetables seeds starts germinate.

I planted some seeds of bitterguord ,cucumber and kaddu some days ago.they didn,t germinate.now i sowed them again 4 days ago but still waiting :( .i don,t know how much time they will take to germinate.i have kept the pots in sunlight where they get sun for about more than 5 hours. i think this is the reason.should i keep them in shade.
