Basil, Dill, Oregano, Sage One Month Update
On December 18th I set Basil, Dill, Oregano and Sage seeds to germinate. I put the seeds in Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix as per seedling instruction and covered their containers in plastic.
Basil – 1/8″ Deep
Dill – 1/4″ Deep 4″ Apart
Oregano – 1/4″ furrow uncovered
Sage – Atop Soil
Oregano germinated quite aggressively and the Basil seeds followed soon after. My seedlings were left alone for most of January while I was away. When I returned, Basil & Oregano had grown a hardier, but Dill & Sage were still dormant. While away I ordered four grow panels off eBay to compare their qualities. I actually convinced myself that the Sage & Dill were not going to germinate and dumped their soil in with the Basil & Oregano when transplanting in to bigger containers. Two days after hooking up the grow lights my Sage & Dill both shot to life, now mixed in other containers. And the basil seedlings doubled in size.
