In another gardening for beginners thread, Ken Peavey recently posted one of these three excellent links to a blog post series of his:

Greenhouse Seed Starts
Potting Up Seedlings
Transplanting Seedlings

Not all of Ken's tips may apply to each of us -- he's in Florida and has a big greenhouse -- but he includes lots of tips and good photos that will be of immense help to anybody who has not seen this done really well before. I certainly found them very useful, as I am in the middle of planting 10x more seeds this year than I've done formerly, and as always I remain chronically short of space, light, resources, and clues.

Given that it's the time of year when many of us norteamericanos are trying to get a sneaky head-start on spring, I really thought Ken's whole blog series was worthy of its own thread. Thanks, Ken!
 
Arch enemy? I mean, I don't like you, but I don't think you qualify as "arch enemy". Here, try this tiny ad:
