Broadcast sowing Broadcast seeding (leafy vegetables) In agriculture, gardening, and forestry, broadcast seeding is a method of seeding that involves scattering seed, by hand or mechanically, over an area. This method is often used by farmer John for germinating veggies seedlings without the need for seedling tray. 1. Mix 50% loamy soil, 30% cocopeat/peat moss, 15% compost and 5% perlite(optional). 2. Give sufficient amount of water to make sure the soil mixture is moist. 3. Broadcast veggies seeds evenly across the given space to avoid overcrowding. (It takes a lot of practice to get it right) 4. When the first sprouts appear, thin and only keep the nicest and most vigorous. (Skip this step if each seedling has at least 1 to 2cm distancing from another.) 5. After 12- 14 days later, use a wooden chopstick to dig up the healthiest seedlings and try to retain as much of the roots and surrounding soil as possible. (Make sure the soil is moist before removing seedlings). Be extremely gentle with their roots. Injured roots can cause transplant stress to the plant. (Avoid doing this activity on a hot day) 6. Transplant the seedlings on a calm, cloudy day so plants don't face a full day of direct sun right away. For each seedling, use a hand trowel to dig a hole just deep enough for the root to fit. Cover their roots with soil, and water immediately. #broadcastseeding #savetime #transplanting
