Planting and planting time is uncompromisingly approaching. Are you looking forward to the sight of all the flowers you’ve planted blooming and you can’t get enough of the view? Do you also like to sit on the terrace, sipping coffee and looking at the garden in bloom? If you are planning to plant a beautiful garden, it will soon be time to buy and select seeds. When buying seeds, there are also a few rules to keep in mind. Which ones are? Find out below.
Bet on the origin
We recommend choosing seeds that are accustomed to our climate conditions. They adapt better and you have a high chance that the plants will thrive. Be sure to look at the back of the packet as well. Besides the exact name, the seed bag should also contain clear information about the manufacturer. If you are choosing cheaper seeds, they are usually from Poland.
Selecting by weight is not appropriate
Do you select seeds by weight and often find that nothing comes out of those seeds? You may be making a mistake in your selection. Don’t choose seeds by weight or by texture. You could squash them. Also, the seeds should be sealed in a special bag so that they are not exposed to moisture. If the seeds are not in a bag, they could become activated by moisture and then dry out. Such seeds will be bad.
Expiration date is also important. Such a date should be printed on the back of the package or elsewhere, especially in a prominent place. And if you buy weighted seeds, write the date of purchase on the packaging. The packaging should also include information on sowing time, harvesting time and recommendations. Every plant has different requirements, so you should always trust the information provided by the seller.
Not to Stock
You shouldn’t buy seeds to stockpile. For the next planting, the seeds could go bad. Only buy as many seeds as you will use. This is especially true of a split bag of seeds; they should be used immediately.
