A customer’s questions about seed starting in the Tower Garden
Q: At this time of the year, can I start seeds directly in the Tower Garden?
A: You can not start your seeds directly in your Tower Garden. Regardless of the season, always start your seeds in the Seedling Starter Kit that comes with the Tower Garden. Of course, use fresh rock wool for the seeds. Cover the seeds with the vermiculite, just like the instructions for the first time you planted. I like to keep the seeds dark until sprouted, then give them filtered sunshine for about a week, then move to full sunlight.
Q: Can I start lettuce when our temperatures are 85 degrees and above?
A: Lettuce is a cool weather plant so for sure you would need to provide shade. You’d also want to have shade on the reservoir since the water gets very hot when the ambient temperature is above 85. Personally, I’m waiting until our day time temps are consistently below 80. Then I’ll start some kale and collard greens that will grow all winter long inside my greenhouse.
