The garden catalog designers have many questions to answer. They come during the dull time of January and give us a dazzling and joyful view of spring. This comes through the picture of many colored flowers and delicious vegetables.

But if you are a beginner on your own garden looks over and over your own Landscaping thinks, everything does not look so easy.

But there is hope! Maybe you can not speed up the arrival of the warm weather, but they can approach the summer garden by searching for and providing one.

Not only will these measures save you money, but you will also have exactly the kind of plants you want. It can be both an exotic species and the favorite tomato variety of your family.

When should one start with the plants outside?

First, check for each plant individually which is the best time for transplanting. Then you have to count back to see exactly when to bring the seeds into the ground. For example, the edible ones for the cool season can go outside when the soil is relatively cool. Those who need more heat and sun will need to be sown later.

No plant may go outside before the last frost! That’s for sure!

If you start too early, then you could plants see grown before the garden is ready for this. Then they will not develop very well either.

Germinating seeds

The seeds are by no means too demanding about where to start. Each vessel, which is deep enough and well fertilized, offers ideal conditions for prosperity.

Many people take care of their plants on wide trays within a home. There you can also set up large pots

Others opt for individual pots of plastic and peat. Even parcels such as from a cell phone could be converted into a suitable place in case of emergency.

Others too Types of reuse such as cartons of milk or eggs. The choice is reserved to you.

If you use packaging or other type of used containers for planting, then as a precaution you should immerse them in 10 percent bleach solution for 10 to 30 minutes. Rinse and dry carefully before starting.

The earth

It is best to use a special peat mix at the beginning, which is intended for the first introduction of the seeds into the soil. This is how you will achieve the best results. Then you should water carefully and let it dry.

You should definitely avoid the dry lumps, but also be careful that you do not fertilize and / or irrigate too much

Tip: Before you start, you should look at the packaging with the seeds. Often there are instructions on how to deal with the specific nature.


In small pots like the ones pictured here you can put two seeds in. Alternatively, you can sprinkle the seeds over a larger area. You should push them slightly down into the ground and then add more of the soil mixture to get them to the optimal depth.

Moisten the surface, but be careful not to over-irrigate

Then you should attach signs or other type of features to the different pots, so you know exactly where you have what. Special signs are best and they can be found in both the specialized stores for Landscaping as well as in some supermarkets.

At this point you often have to provide the plants with plastic blankets. So the earth will stay moist and warm. Such an approach leads to faster germination.

The temperature of the earth should be over 24 degrees. Especially the heat-loving plants would have to be additionally supported by an electric blanket or by placing them in warm water.

But even then the surface should not get too hot. One should not exceed the limit of 32 degrees in any case.

The cool season’s plants feel happy at house temperatures

Watering from a tray under the pots is a good way to keep the soil moist but not too wet. Therefore, be sure to consider this possibility.

Seeds care before the garden design

Once the germs show up, you should remove the plastic cover and put the plants in a well-lit pot. The temperature, which one must receive it is between 16 and 24 degrees. It can be a warm window in your house or a sunny terrace. Why not an Orangerie?

You should avoid a dense plantation and continue to follow the instructions on the seed package!

If you do not have such a bright spot in your house, then you should consider light sources that you place in the ground. The additional heating from below should then be decided depending on the case. The light has to be something above the plant.

Plants need between 12 and 16 hours of light per day to really develop well. As soon as the first leaves appear, you need to start with the next step: Now it’s time for the liquid or other type of fertilizer specifically designed for this stage.

Transplant in larger pots

Depending on the size of the first pots, you will turn each plant into its own pot at a certain moment. Ask a specialist about the right size for your needs Landscaping would.

However great the temptation for the plot may be and how crowded the pots look, you should be very patient. Because often one confuses the cotyledons with the right ones and therefore misjudges the phase of growth. Be sure to wait for the real ones! They will come soon, do not worry!

As soon as the real leaves come, you can transform the plants into new pots. Fill the pot with the moist soil mixture to the brim and make a hole in the soil for the plant.

Turn the original pot upside down and gently remove the plant. Hold the plant by the leaves and root ball. Under no circumstances should you keep them on the weak trunk.

If you remove several plants at once, you should separate them with your hands. You can also use a skewer or a toothbrush.

Take your time and handle with utmost care so that you do not damage the plant.

Place the plant in a new pot and squeeze the soil around it to make it firmer.

Again, you should moisten the soil, but be careful not to get too wet. Now place the pot in a bright place, avoiding the direct sunshine in any case in the first few days. You should also keep the soil moist, but never too watered.

Tip: Many gardeners cause a kind of artificial wind by gently stroking the plants with their hands. You move them gently to the front and back and promote their growth. The plants become much stronger thanks to this approach.

Curing before the real garden design

Before you go to your Landscaping go over, you have to take another step. It is about curing.

This must happen in the garden for a minimum of 10 days or a maximum of 2 weeks before planting. It is in this process that the plants slowly get used to the outside conditions. When the time comes, you should stop using the weekly fertilizer and add a little less water.

Put the plants outside for a few hours each day. In the beginning, just an hour might be enough. Then you should extend the time slowly. At night, in the case of temperatures, the plants have to go back inside.

Not only by the time of the whereabouts outside, but also the amount of wind and sun would have to be limited. It would be most easy if you choose a place where these conditions have been fulfilled by themselves.

Once the plants have spent several nights outside, you can finally transplant them to their permanent place.

Tip: cover the seeds with bird nests when they bring them out. Birds and others

Otherwise, creatures will find them way too fast and try to feed them


You can start planting outside, but that is by no means the only solution. Outside you will find alternatives that are also wonderful. These are the cold frames, the bell hats and the greenhouses.

There you can find the right circumstances for all kinds of processes

In cold frames you should easily open the ceiling piece by piece during the curing process.

The bell hat is another possibility. They will be able to keep the plant warm during the night through this approach. This is a wonderful idea for the young plants and not so suitable in case you have set many strains.
