How to start Perennials from seed

Hi Gardening Friends
Here is a way to start perennials from seed. First of all as always you need to have
clean sterilized seed flats. After you clean them and let them dry. Then you take
your germination soil mix and fill the flat half full of mixture after that you should be able to sow your seeds. First read the back of the packet to see if you should cover the seeds with germination mix or not? Then after you do that you should mist you seed flat and mark the flat with what you just planted.
Then place the flat on the greenhouse bench or if you don't have a greenhouse
you can put them in your house on a propagating mat with a grow light.
It usually takes about 10 to 14 days for them to germinate. This can be for
almost every kind of perennial in starting them from seed.
I hope this helps my gardening friends
