Troubleshooting: Why Aren’t My Seeds Growing?

Are you experiencing frustration because your seeds aren’t sprouting as expected? Let’s troubleshoot some common issues to help you understand why your seeds might not be germinating:

  1. Improper Soil Moisture:
    Seeds require the right amount of moisture to germinate. If the soil is too wet or too dry, it can inhibit germination. Ensure that your soil is consistently moist but not waterlogged.
  2. Seed Quality:
    The quality of your seeds plays a crucial role in germination success. Expired or poor-quality seeds may have low germination rates. Invest in high-quality seeds from reputable suppliers to improve your chances of success.
  3. Sunlight Exposure:
    Contrary to popular belief, seeds don’t need direct sunlight to germinate. Exposing seeds to sunlight can actually hinder germination. Ensure that your seeds are planted at the appropriate depth in the soil to shield them from direct sunlight.
  4. Seed Depth:
    Planting seeds too deep in the soil can prevent them from germinating. Follow the recommended planting depth for each type of seed to ensure optimal germination conditions.
  5. Seed Contamination:
    Contaminated seed can harbor pathogens that inhibit seed germination. Use fresh seed to minimize the risk of contamination.
  6. Varieties of Seed:
    Some seeds like coriander need 14 days to see sprout while others may take 3 to 5 days. Understanding the germination times of different seed varieties allows vertical gardeners to plan their planting schedule accordingly. Whether you’re looking for quick results or don’t mind waiting a bit longer, there’s a wide range of seeds available to suit your gardening preferences.
