There are a lot of slips between seed germination and fork. Seedlings can die while pricking out, growing on, hardening, off, and transplanting. In the case of cole crops, broccoli, lettuce, and spinach; they can bolt.
|Well, not quite like that...|
Enter primed seed...
So far I am thoroughly impressed. I planted about 40 seeds two weeks ago. I think I have 100% germination, with each plant developing its first true leaves at this point. I planted them in a grid pattern (like I was a square foot gardener, which I am not), but it makes it easy to see if I did indeed get good germination.
There are more and more primed seeds coming on the market. If you have had a hard time growing something before and see primed seed for it available, I urge you to give it a try.
