Seedlings

Seedlings

When starting seedlings early indoors, brush your hands gently across the tops of your plants every day once they are a couple of inches tall. This little bit o…f regular movement will help seedlings develop sturdy stems. Or you can set a fan to blow gently across your young plants. The increased air movement will also lessen the likelihood of disease problems. For all of your gardening questions, visit/like the Master Gardener Facebook page, email, or call the Help Desk.
