A couple of weeks ago I decided to try this.
Having not grown anything before,I thought Mini Sunflowers would be a good start. Vase, soil and seeds all in one box. I brought everything to work for my sunny windowsill.
First:I soaked this bag of soil over night.
Next: I carefully separated the soil in order to plant my seeds
Then I waited, and watered.
And waited some more!
Finally, on Tuesday, I came to work and saw this.
And more of the same today! A nice start, don't you think?
More updates as they become available! :)
