How to start seeds in 3 days

This post was originally published in the Spring of 2013…I’d like to share it with you again since Spring is almost here and it’s time to get those seeds started! The photos aren’t great, my nails look awful, but it works, so I’m going to share it again anyway ;)  Happy Gardening!


I love flowers! There is nothing better than having coffee on my patio in the mornings, surrounded by all of the vibrant colors in my garden.  I especially love flowers that climb trellises and fences.   This year, I decided to add some new climbers to my garden, and I wanted them to grow quickly.  To be honest, I just forgot to do my usual indoor seed planting weeks ago like I was supposed to.  So, when I saw a tip in Southern Living Magazine last week, I decided to try it.  Now I am going to show you how to start seeds in 3 days!  No kidding…
