FGT Tip #12: Planting Seeds

For Greener Thumbs, Tip #12: Planting Seeds

Have you bought a seed packet and upon opening it, found hundreds, or maybe a thousand seeds inside? If you’re like me, you’re thinking, there’s no way I’ll plant hundreds of these in one season! Well, one thing I do, and I give to the For Greener Thumbs readers as my tip of the day, plant a pinch per hole and ensure you keep the spacing between plants as recommended. When you use a small pinch, you may only be placing three or four seeds per hole. Then, when they grow, keep the biggest or strongest looking seedling and carefully cut the smaller ones. It’s better to trim them off versus pulling out so as to avoid disturbing the healthier plants roots you want to keep in that spot.

No need to dump the entire seed packet in at once! Just use a pinch!


  1. Good tipa to plant seeds pinch an hole in the right space, then trim those small one off instead pull it out.
    I will rember to do so this spring.
    Thank you for sharing.
