Seed Starting Photo Tour – Part 1
Sam isn’t the only one who gets to have all the growing fun! At our Connecticut location, we are incorporating product training into a hands-on growing experience. Last year, we grew tomatoes in raised beds and dutch buckets, and the success we had gave us the confidence to expand our crop this year. We are growing flowers, including petunias and sunflowers, and veggies of course, including everything from jalapenos to potatoes to tomatoes this year. We are also experimenting with different types of growing. We will be growing hydroponically in NFT channels, in raised beds outside again, and inside the greenhouse.
The first seeds to get started were the petunias and jalapeno peppers. Let’s take a look at how we got started:
The journey to germination will be done under grow lights hung with our Gripple Hanger System. The grow lights are being used for supplemental lighting. Set on a timer, they add a couple hours of light to the beginning and the end of the day.
The germination station also includes a Redi-Heat™ Heavy-Duty Propagation Mat to add heat directly to the root zone.
This is just the start of the growing season for us! We are looking forward to jalapeno poppers and pretty petunias and can’t wait to start the rest of our crops!
