About This Class

There are many ways to start seeds -- and I'm pretty sure I have tried them all! After years of minimal, mediocre success starting seeds indoors, I have finally found a system that works and saves money.

In this class I will teach you how to make seed containers by upcycling newspaper and a can. I will also share my all-purpose soil mix which I use for seed starting as well as for all my house plants and container garden plants. You can save loads by simply making your own soil mix, rather than buying peat disks or premixed potting soil.

We will discuss how to start seeds indoors, and how to create an effective, but frugal seed starting shelf you can put anywhere in your home. I will also give you a tour of my seed starting shelf, which includes (hopefully) every "what" and "why" you need answered to get one started for yourself!

I hope you will join me in this fun class.
