Soil Blocks for Tiny Seeds

February 15, 2015

Most home gardeners are familiar with large flowers seeds like zinnia and cosmos.  However, a majority of flower seeds are tiny, some so tiny it is difficult to see or hold the individual seeds.  For starting tiny seeds, I like to use soil block makers that form sets of potting soil blocks that act as both the container and soil for growing seedlings.  My soil blocker makes twenty ¾ inch blocks that I place on a small plastic tray under the shop lights in our basement. I normally plant the soil blocks seedlings directly in the field, but our extra cold February weather has delayed planting and as a result, the seedlings were bumped up into larger cells and kept under the shop lights.
