Every spring I start my seeds growing in the house, so I don’t have to buy plants. I start my plants in my dining room on a folding table. The table has a heated blanket covered by a thick plastic sheet to keep the water off. The plants sit on top of the plastic sheet. I keep a small fan on the table to simulate wind which helps the plants acclimate better when I put them outside.
There is a wood frame that sits on top of the table that has incandescent and fluorescent lights. The fluorescent lights help the seeds sprout, and the incandescent lights get hotter which help with the growing process.
