A question came today – Why won’t my Basil and Sage Germinate?
Some seeds require light to germinate. Basil, lettuce, marjoram, mint, oregano, sage and thyme need to be planted with no covering of soil to germinate. Sow seed directly on top of the soil, water in and cover the flats or pots with glass, plastic or plastic domes to retain humidity. Within a few days the seed will germinate into the soil. The clear covering may then be removed after a few more days.
