With the events of the past year, there have been certain items that have become even more essential for everyday life. While things like toilet paper and hand sanitizer flew off the shelves, one unforeseen item sold out quicker than expected. Due to both higher demand and restrictions on production, seeds have been selling out way ahead of schedule.
In today’s episode, we dig into the process of planning, purchasing, and preparing your seeds for use in your garden. Learn the process of sprouting your seeds and why your garden zone influences everything, including both when and what you can plant. I also share how I’ve been able to save thousands of dollars over the year simply by starting my own plants in my basement. No matter your level of expertise, there is sure to be something for you in this jam-packed episode!
