[Video] Using Grow Lights to Start Healthy Seedlings

In many areas, it is almost time for gardeners to begin starting slow-growing seedlings indoors. This quick video shares some helpful tips for keeping your indoor seedlings healthy by using grow lights.

Starting your plants indoors is a great way to get a head start on the spring and summer growing seasons, but giving your little seedlings enough light can be challenging. If seedlings do not get enough light after germination, they can get “leggy” and develop long, spindly, weak stems that are prone to damage or disease.

Using a grow light can help ensure your baby plants get all the light they need until they are ready to be transplanted out of doors into the sunshine.

This short video shares some ideas for which plants you should (and shouldn’t) start indoors, and how to best use grow lights for maximum benefit.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
