    Elegant Test Tube Seed Starting

    2
    Share

    Place sealed test tubes filled with seeds inside a glass cloche for an elegant way to start seeds.

    Gardeners who start plants from seed know the best way to do it is to pre-germinate the seeds in some type of container such as a bowl, glass dish or test tube. Sometimes finding an elegant way to display those seed starting containers, especially if you have limited space, can be tricky.

    Using test tubes placed inside a cloche is a great way to keep the water the seeds are soaking in warmer, germinate a lot of seeds in a limited space and turn a necessary process into an elegant endeavor.

    Place multiple test tubes filled with hot water and seeds inside a small ceramic flower pot.

     

    Here is how the process works:

    Begin with clean test tubes. Sometimes you can find these in the Halloween section of stores.

    Place clean, dry seeds in the bottom of the test tubes.

    Fill the tubes 3/4 of the way up with hot water.

    Place the cork on the top of the test tube.

    Place a label towards the top of the test tube so you don’t forget what type of seeds are in the tubes.
