If you want to get a high yield, then certainly one of the most important factors is the quality of the seeds you plan to sow. It is determined by the purity of their variety, germination , by how quickly the seeds germinate and their adaptability to external conditions.
Even visually, an initial assessment can be made:
- good seeds always look full, wrinkled may indicate that the seeds were harvested not quite ripe,
- the seeds selected for planting should be free of debris, admixtures of other crops,
- seeds should be approximately the same size, without too small, broken copies.
When choosing seeds, you can start from:
- directly to your preferences, it is worth growing what you eat.
- Ensuring that your garden provides the body's need for nutrients and calories; choose both high-calorie crops (beans, potatoes) and fortified crops (cabbage, salads, cabbage)
- The reliability of the seed seller. Some vendors deliver seeds from different locations, while others grow everything themselves. Someone, in order to avoid all kinds of diseases or pests, dressing seeds with chemicals, others grow using organic methods.
- It is better to buy seeds that were grown/harvested in the vicinity. They are already in some way adapted to the conditions of the region (soil, climate).
- The variety of crops grown (this helps to ensure that the soil does not degrade, and can also help in solving pest problems when your seeds will already sprout).
Quality seeds will definitely please you with a good harvest!
