Head Start: A Windowsill Seed Garden


Eager for the arrival of spring, we're getting a jump on the garden with a little help from our Paper Pot Press. We pulled pages from one of our coloring books to create a group of patterned pots for starting ranunculus from seed, then gathered them in a marble tray to create a colorful, windowsill-sized garden. Late winter is the perfect time to start ranunculus-- plant your seeds in lightweight, peat-based soil around 12 weeks before the average date of your region's last spring frost, using a generous number of seeds in each pot since ranunculus have a low germination rate. Preferring cooler temperatures, ranunculus seedlings will sprout within 20-30 days and flourish if kept indoors at around 55°F until it's time for outdoor planting.
