[Total: 0    Average: 0/5] You must sign in to vote How To Plant Tomato & Pepper Seeds Indoors In this video, I will show you how to start your tomato and pepper seeds indoors for December harvest for those of us located in grow zone 9. I’m starting the seeds indoors on July 20th. I will transplant the tomato seedlings in about a month into bigger cups and the pepper seedlings will stay in their current cups until is time to plant them in the garden. As always, I am using Jiffy Organic Seed starting Mix. I only plant one seed per cup because with this starting mix I have close to a 100% germinating rate. I moistened the seed starting mix with water from the sink, which I allowed to sit for a few hours in order for the chlorine to evaporate. I always bottom water my seeds by filling the tray with water and allowing the soil to absorb the needed amount of water. I will keep the seeds covered with clear plastic on the top of the refrigerator until they germinate. I will do at least one watering with fish fertilizer and one watering with Epsom salt. When the tomato and pepper seeds germinate, I will move them by the window so they can get enough sunlight. 1.

    That is the same seed starting mix I use. It works really well, but it does dry out pretty fast.

    Would you be able to germinate them outside? Thanks for these great videos!

    Not many places in the US where you can start tomato plants in July and expect to have tomatoes before its too cold unless you have a greenhouse. Arizona has a tremendously long growing season!

    Hi! Thanks for all your very informative videos! I am dying to start my seedlings but the temperature outside is still way too hot (I'm in Dubai). However, I have a window that only gets about 3 hours of sunlight in the morning from about 7am-10am and I'm not currently in a position to buy/install grow lights. Is that enough or will they still be light deprived? Otherwise, what would you recommend for the maximum temperature outside to start growing seedlings?
    Also haven't yet found seed starting mix here, I do have organic potting mix. Would this still work?
