Tricks For Handling Small Seeds
In a couple of months it will be time to seed start my early Spring crops. What are your tricks for handling very small seeds?
I often use 1" wide strips of paper towel, kept moist in tupperware in a dark cabinet over the stove (for the warmth) to germinate them. Especially for older seeds that might have lower germination rates. Then carefully use a folded bit of paper as a funnel to put them on the towel. Once they germinate, then cut the towel into 1" squares and plant.
Recently I saw someone suggest mixing small seeds with sand, then putting the mix into a salt shaker. You could just sprinkle the mix over the towel, or over seed starter pots.
