How to successfully start seedlings indoors

If you’ve never actually tried, you may think this is a pitifully easy thing any moron could do. Stick some seeds in a pot of soil, put the pot under a light, and water it right? That’s what I thought too. A few weeks later I realized my mistake. My plants would grow alright, and Read More
