It’s time to starting seeds for Your EarthBox Gardening System!
Do you enjoy trying unusual varieties? Would you like to save some money on plants? Try seed starting! It’s quite easy, and incredibly fun to watch your seeds sprout and take off. Most seeds need to be started indoors, grown to the seedling stage, and then transplanted when the weather is warmer.
