Planting from Seeds
I live in Woodland Hills, a neighborhood in the Los Angeles county, California. Pretty hot and dry...usually between 85 - 105 with most of days around the 90, 95 deg F. I wish to start growing vegetables, and herbs from seeds. And then transplant the seedlings in a raised bed. Already put some seeds of beets, oregano, parsley, basil, Swiss chard, squash, sage, and cilantro; planted about 4 weeks ago in small yogurt cups with a hole at the bottom for drainage, almost constantly moist in full sun about 6 to 10 hours. Nothing germinated yet. Whats wrong ? Can you advise please what to do next ... the raised beds with drip irrigation are ready to be populated and at the moment I decided not to buy seedlings but sowing seeds on a side place outdoors. Thanks for your advise Reuven Koter
