Project

Windowsill Greenhouse

Get a jump on growing season by starting vegetable seeds indoors in an elegant windowsill greenhouse.

Introduction

Resources:Greenhouse Kit and Martha Stewart Living Seeds are available from The Home Depot. M-brace for raised bed from Art of the Garden.

Materials

  • Jiffy Windowsill Greenhouse Kit
  • Vegetable seeds
  • Water
  • Raised bed (optional)
  • Potting soil
  • Compost

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Water peat pellets contained within the windowsill greenhouse kit. The peat inside the pellets will take in the water and expand, growing from a flat pellet to a column of medium for seeds to grow in.

  2. Step 2

    Place vegetable seeds into pellets. Strong roots should appear within a few weeks of planting.

  3. Step 3

    Once seedlings reach a height of a few inches or more, they are ready to transplant into the ground or a raised bed. After transplanting, water seedlings evenly and steadily, and add compost to encourage growth. If using a raised bed, remember that they drain fast and need to be checked daily.
