Toast: With its enticing crunch and ability to stand up to a wide array of toppings—from egg yolks and butter to mayo, mustard, jam, and beyond—it’s literally the best thing since sliced bread.

You’ll need a polytunnel, greenhouse or a very light windowsill in the house to sow the seeds, which germinate readily in a small pot or tray of seed compost, kept at an even temperature around 25°C (a heated propagator will help you achieve this). Once the seeds have germinated, prick the seedlings out individually into small pots and grow on.
I have given up indoor seed starting completely on several occasions. The first time it happened I was a novice gardener. I had ordered seeds of just about every plant that I saw in the garden catalogs without thinking about such practical things as gallons of potting soil, hours of daily watering, and square feet of windowsill space.

My chaotic efforts eventually produced some wonderful plants, but the process was so exhausting that I said: “Never again.”
A giant invasive plant known as “Millennium Madness” sprouted worldwide last year. It was particularly bad in the United States and positively egregious in the New York metropolitan area.

While professionals in a host of countries spent months trying to think of ways to eradicate the Y2K Bug, ordinary people were rumored to be aiding the rapid growth and spread of Millennium Madness by watering local specimens with vast quantities of bottled water that they had stored in their basements.

This article explains the ingredients you’ll need, how to mix up a batch, and even offers a few of my favorite seed starting soil recipes.
Soil blocking is a seed-starting technique that uses cubes of compressed soil to grow healthy, vigorous plants. It’s my go-to method for starting vegetable, flower, and herb seeds and produces a lot of seedlings without the need for plastic pots or cell packs. The cubes of soil are made using metal soil blockers which come in a variety of sizes. Soil blocking isn’t difficult but there are a few points to keep in mind to boost success. Below you’ll learn all about soil blocking and the best way to make sturdy cubes of soil for seed starting.
