Seed Starting Basics

Know the seed starting basics: starting your seed sprouting inside will go a long ways towards giving your garden an early start.

In late winter, start onion sets, shallots and garlic indoors in compartmented trays. In three to four weeks, roots will be numerous and leaves 10 to 12 inches high; they’re ready to plant in the garden. Spring rains will make for fat bulbs at harvest time.
