After you and your students have planned out a seed starting schedule, get out your seeds, containers, and potting mix, and start sowing! This video is a recap of Pilot Video 1 "Starting Seeds Indoors," which shows you how to sow with peat pellets. Now, you will gain a more in-depth understanding of two crucial materials for seed starting: containers and potting mix. (Essentially, this breaks down those self-contained peat pellets into these two main components.) Your kids can choose from a variety of different containers and even make their own potting mix recipe! However, this video will remind you of several points to keep in mind, as you choose and use your materials, to ensure successful germination.
