Starting plants from seeds in a greenhouse or cold frame is a great way to get a head start on the growing season. When planting seeds in containers, it’s important to have the right soil so the plants will grow.

Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix is the perfect mix for seedlings, since it contains peat moss and perlite to absorb water, and plant food to give seedlings a boost.

Miracle-Gro Potting Mix is available at The Home Depot. Watch this video to find out more.

Jodi Marks: There are several different advantages to having a greenhouse. First of all, if you want to make your plants last all season long, when the weather starts to turn cold, all you’ve got to do is bring your beautiful plants into your greenhouse, and they’ll last all year long. Now, another thing that you could do is that you could use these little pots here, and you could plant your own seedlings, so that you could grow in your greenhouse.

Now, to get a good start for your seedlings, you need to get a good soil. Now, I’ve got Miracle-Gro Seed Starting soil right here. And this is perfect if you are considering growing your own plants out of seeds. What makes this so good? Well, it’s chock-full of phosphorous, which really helps the root and the stem systems grow really strong in your little plants, so that they’ll be good and hardy to go when you want to put them in the ground.

So, whether you have existing plants or you want to start your own plants, make sure you have a greenhouse, and also make sure you start with some good soil before you do.
