When your #soak treatment lasts ten days... Because you ran out of dirt, containers, energy... I hope they bounce back. But kinda a cool look at the root structure... #nasturtium #companionplant #seedling #root #whyamialwaysoutofdirt #whyamialwayoutofpots

What will you plant them with?

@columbiariver they make good companion plants for vegetables. Specifically, by the squash, watermelons, and tomatoes. Yarrow and marigolds are good companion plants for a veggie garden, too. (But no marigolds near beans.)

I always thought they were just pretty! And tasty. Well good. I will tell the Mr. He's not excited about his garden at all. I think he doesn't feel well because of being co-caregiver for his mom. It takes a lot out of you. She's still doing ok. But she really isn't. OOps! Running off again. Anyway I've done all of the planting and I want to get my friends seed planted. It's ok. Keeps me young. Right! Not! I'm slowing down. That's ok too Jenn.

@columbiariver I understand all too well. I'm my husband's caregiver. And then add the 4 year old on top of it, and I'm always exhausted. I just barely got my planting done last night, for seeds starting inside. I'll try to plant out everything I can this next week before vacation, and then direct sow a lot of the vegetable garden right when I get back. I need to recover our guest room... The plants are out of control. I worry about the humidity in there creating mold... 😳

Need to be shielded from afternoon heat. Hanging baskets in the front. Plant with alyssum. 😁

You can nick the seeds or soak them in warm water overnight to help them germinate more quickly.[1]

Plant each seed in a peat pot, which can be transplanted directly to the ground to avoid disturbing the roots. Use seed substrate, rather than potting soil.

Sow seeds 5mm – 1cm (¼”-½”) deep. If starting indoors, provide darkness during germination, followed by bright light. Space smaller varieties 15-30cm (6-12″) apart, and the big ones like Tall Single 60-90cm (24-36″) apart. Suggested you plant three seeds in a pot.
