What Cornmeal Can Do To Help Your Seeds Thrive
Planting small seeds can be a challenge given their tiny size, making them tricky to see and space properly. A practical solution to this problem is to mix the seeds with cornmeal.
This approach works wonders, as the typically dark-colored seeds stand out against the light cornmeal, simplifying the task of spotting and handling them.
To implement this method, simply add an equal amount of cornmeal to the amount of your small seeds, and then go ahead with your usual planting routine.
There is no need to fret about adding cornmeal into the planting hole — it's safe and won't impact the seeds' ability to germinate. Its main purpose is to ease the sowing process.
