Q. How do I make soilless vegetable seed starting mix?

Answer

Soilless seed starting mixes available in nurseries are fine for starting vegetable seeds.

A recipe for soilless seed starting mix is

1.  8 parts coco coir or peat moss

2.  1 part vermiculite  (helps retain water)

3.  1 part perlite (helps drainage)

4.  1/4 tsp garden lime (use if using peat moss)

 

Mix well.  May store any leftovers in plastic bag for later use.

 

All ingredients are available at garden centers.
