Seed Starting 101 eBook is HERE!

April 2nd, 2013

After much work, it’s nice to announce that the Seed Starting 101 eBook is finally finished. After much debate about putting it out as a regular e-book for a few dollars on Amazon or somewhere else, I decided to offer it as a downloadable PDF for free. A big thanks to those of you who have donated to support our efforts.

Inside the book, there are 20 pages filled with photos and information. I also included my chart on the shelf life of seeds.

If you have any questions or find any mistakes, please let me know. With this format I can easily add things to the book if needed. Hopefully this is early enough for most of you. Feel free to pin this book and share it with others. I’m hoping more and more gardeners will find joy in nurturing their own garden plants from seed.

Have you already started seeds for the 2013 gardening season?
