On the advice of my mum, I bought a seed starter on the way home from work today. There were a bunch of different options, but the one with the expanding sphagnum pellets looked like the most fun. Not only do they grow from a flat little disk into a self-contained net pot that you can plant in the ground as-is, but sphagnum is just a fun word! So I bought the Jiffy Professional Greenhouse at my neighborhood Lowe's.
Adding water to the sphagnum.
Isn't that awesome?!
The seeds just get planted right in there!
Chris and I planted our seeds; now all we have to do is wait for them to sprout. Updates to come.
