If you haven’t already, it’s now time to get those native seeds into the soil.
As you can see in the picture, I clean out the area, put in the seeds and then cover them with potting soil. I use a plastic lawn edging to keep the seeds in place and also make it easier to know in the spring where the new plants are.
I also mark the seeds with stakes to know for sure what is coming up in the spring.
This technique is an easy way to grow your own plants for your own garden or to share with others.
Option #2 – 1020 Daisy Trays
Here is another option I am trying this year.
I am using what is called a 1020 Daisy Tray. Sometimes you can get them for free when you buy a flat of plants, but I bought some from Greenhouse Megastore.
Here’s what they look like below when they are finished.
Theoretically, I could either just let the seeds germinate in the trays over the winter, or I could try bringing in the whole tray inside during March to let them get a head start germinating inside.
