I read the directions -- simple enough...just take some warm water and pour it over the pods that came in the windowsill seed starter kit. I bought these particular ones because they are perfect for the windowsill and after the seedlings are ready the whole peat pod can be transplanted so I can start lettuces as well as herbs and not have to worry about transplanting leafy greens outside.
So after picking out the seeds I wanted to start the first step was to add the warm water to the pods. This was actually pretty cool (okay I'm easily amused) since you watch the flat pods puff up right before your eyes.
That's it. Now you just have to wait to see if the seeds sprout. Seems like an easy and inexpensive way to start seeds. The windowsill gardens are about $6 and the seeds vary depending on the company and the actual seed you choose.
So it's all done.... but the waiting.
