Instead of our usual Tip of the Month, we wanted to help you start 2017 with a bang. So our January Tip of the Month is more than just a tip… it’s a complete guide to seed starting for organic gardeners.
Here’s what’s included:
- Our 3-part video series providing a complete guide to seed starting;
- Seed Starting Ebook in case you’d prefer to read through any of the information from the video classes and/or get additional notes.
These three video classes will teach you everything you need to know to start, grow, and transplant healthy organic seedlings into your garden. Whether you’re a green thumb or a brown thumb, you’ll learn methods and approaches from watching these videos that will help you have better success starting your garden plants from seed.
The instructors are Eliza Holcombe Lord, GrowJourney’s Education Director (Master Gardener, Master Naturalist, Permaculturalist) and Aaron von Frank (GrowJourney’s cofounder/CEO and an organic gardening expert).

Some of the seed starting products we recommend and mention in our videos and ebook include:

- thermostat to control heat mat temp
- live beneficial nematodes (eat fungus gnat larvae that can kill your seedlings)
- neem oil (if you have a problem with aphids on your indoor seedlings)
- plant tags
