I've grown successful gardens but now want to try seeds early

Post by Guest »

I'm in zone 7.

Can you all recommend resources on what I should be learning?

Do I need grow lights and heat?

Should I put it on the ground or on cement (I have a pad)?

Planning on the cheapest greenhouse, 5x7 or something close to that.

Thanks for any info you can give me!

I bring a bunch of my stuff in every winter.

Grow lights are great. Highly recommend them.

I haven’t done seeds inside in winter.

But planning on trying and yes with grow lights.

I’ve done plenty of starting in house. I do use a heat pad and grow lights. For getting a head start. And for microgreens.

The back of your seed packet will tell you when to start and if indoor or outdoor. You just need to know your last frost date.

I’ve never used “grow lights”. I have and do use 4’ shop lights. Been doing it for 20 years and works for me. I start in my house, then move to the greenhouse.

You can purchase a Bluetooth thermometer for your GH. Then, you can know the temp out there and won’t have to guess.
