Vegetable Seeds Online

Seedsare like little time capsules, biding their time to just spring up and add life where once there was none. The beauty of growing plants from vegetable seeds is the end-to-end control you have over the whole process from the growing medium to the end result and the numerous seeds you can harvest at the end. The joy of watching a seed grow and transform into something wondrous is not entirely elusive and all of us can make it happen with very little effort.

Gardening from vegetable seeds online shopping requires a good germination medium, grow pots and a well-ventilated area with indirect light. The rest is as easy as growing a money plant! What follows are some of the well-kept and cherished secrets of the seed gardener wing of the plant parent club.

Buy Vegetable seeds online

Always use good-quality organic seeds and you can buy vegetable seeds online India from Ugaoo.Seeds generally have a shelf life, so look for trustworthy sources (Ugaoo) to buy vegetable seeds online from, or if you are using your own seeds use them every following season.
If you are germinating a vegetable it is better to use a grow pot/seedling tray for germination as it is easier to control the growing conditions.
Use a light, well-draining medium for germinating your seeds. A light airy medium like cocopeat holds enough air in between the soil particles to increase the chances of a successful germination. They also support root growth as the tiny roots don’t have to struggle much to expand.
Never bury your seeds too deep. The general rule of thumb, if not specified, is to cover the seeds with a soil layer that is not more than twice the seed size. While watering ensure that the soil covering the seed does not get dislodged. Never let the growing medium get dry. The idea is to maintain a constant level of moisture that is neither soggy nor drying.
Place your germinating setup in indirect light with plenty of ventilation. Germinating stations should never be set up in an area with direct sunlight, as harsh light can kill sprouts.
When planting seeds for leafy vegetables, plant them directly in the soil beds or planters you want them to grow but ensure the same growing condition, i.e. protection from direct light and rain and just enough water. One cheat for successful germination is to cover the germinating setup with cardboard sheets the first couple of days to give them the warm humid environment necessary for quicker germination.

Now that we have talked about the basic but essential steps to seeds gardening, let's talk about the often overlooked aspect – planning.

Winter Vegetables in India

In contrast to a majority of the world, seventy percent of our meals consist of plants and plant products and it is needless to highlight the myriad ways in which the humblest of vegetables are prepared in Indian cuisine. Some vegetables are more quintessentially Indian than the others, case in point karela and they are so easy to grow.

First things first, let’s set you up with the vegetable calendar for winters:
Vegetable Seeds Growing Months Harvest time (days)
Beetroot seeds August - December 80 – 90
Bitter gourd seeds November - February 50-60
Broccoli seeds All Seasons 95-100
Cabbage seeds September - January 95 - 100
Capsicum seeds October - January 95 - 100
Cauliflower seeds October - January 120 -125
Carrot seeds August - March 75 - 80
Cucumber seeds All seasons 65 – 70
Beans seeds January - March 50 -55
Lettuce seeds September - February 45 - 55
Okra seeds All seasons 45 -55
Onions seeds All seasons 150 - 160
Peas seeds September - January 55- 60
Radish seeds September - January 45-50
Spinach seeds All seasons 35-40
Tomato seeds All seasons 90-100
Turnip seeds October - December 55-60

Now, assuming that you have set up your seeds for germination, it's time to move on to setting up the vegetable beds or containers for the final stage.
The soil needs to be rich in organic matter but light enough to not get waterlogged and soggy to prevent root rot. It needs to be a good mix of topsoil (approx. 55-60%), organic matter (approx. 30%), and soilless growing mix like cocopeat or vermiculite (approx. 10%).
Watering also plays a very big role in the proper growth of plants and fruiting. Too much water and it will rot and too little water and it will either have stunted growth or shrivel. The simple science behind watering is that it should be done in proportion to the size of the plant and the light it is getting.
Use good quality and reliable organic fertilisers from trusted sources. The frequency and the right time of fertilisation is just as important as the quality of fertilizer.


FAQs

What are the fastest growing vegetables that can be grown in pots in home gardens?

How to grow vegetables from seeds in pots?

Growing vegetables from seeds in a home garden is easy even for first time gardeners. The most crucial elements are the soil type, season, light, and water. Follow these general steps to grow your own vegetables from seeds, unless otherwise instructed by the seed provider:
1. Choose vegetables that constitute a major part of your daily food plan and are easy to grow.
2. Select vegetables as per the season, while spinach, coriander, mint, peas can be grown around the year, tomatoes, beans, bell peppers, pak choy do better in the latter half.
3. Buy seeds from a trusted seller. It is the first investment and good quality seeds guarantee successful results while starting vegetable gardening from scratch.
4. Big pots equate to more soil, which equates to more nutrients per plant, thus leading to better and bigger produce. It is also very important to select a nutrient rich soil mix ( with compost, organic manure, and organic fertiliser), because unlike ornamental plants, these plants need to yield fruit and for that they need to grow in a nutrient rich soil.
5. Even for the best quality seeds, not all seeds germinate, so plant more than you need at well-spaced intervals. For example, if you want to grow two tomato plants in pot, plant 4 seeds, if all of them germinate, transplant the other 2 saplings once they are a few inches tall to another pot or gift them to your friends.
6. While sowing the plant seeds, sow them 3-4 times deep the diameter of the seed, unless otherwise specified. Always keeps the soil moist by lightly watering (so as not to disturb the seeds) and spraying the seed bed. Don’t make the soil soggy wet, but moist at all times.
7. Keep the germinating seed in bright indirect sunlight, few hours of direct morning light, or dappled shade to prevent the seedlings from burning in the direct sun.
8. Once the saplings are well established, spray them with an organic pesticide (neem oil) regularly, to keep them healthy and pay attention to their light and water requirements and provide the necessary conditions for better yield and fertilise with organic fertiliser whenever suggested. Do not over fertilize, as that leads to plants dying out.
9. Do not overwater the plants, keep the soil moist at all times. This is where big pots come in handy for first time gardeners, they hold more soil, hence more moisture, so you don’t have to worry about watering too frequently.
10. Pay attention to what the plants are telling you. Always water in the morning before peak sun for maximum benefit.
Fertilise and spray pesticides either in the morning or evening and keep a track of the growing cycle and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

What potting mix or soil is suitable for growing vegetables organically at home?

Growing vegetables at home in pots or starting you own vegetable garden form scratch is an easy task even for a first time gardener. One of the biggest distinctions between the soil requirement for vegetable and fruit trees and ornamental plants is the nutrient required. Plants that yield produce need more nutrients for a healthier produce which they get from the soil and the fertilisers that are added to the soil. However a standard potting mix that works for most vegetables is equal parts sterilized garden soil (red soil), rich organic compost, cocopeat, sand, and vermiculite. However, the following points need to be followed when selecting potting mixes:
1. Do not use unclean garden soil, as they might have ants or other small organisms that can eat your germinating seeds.
2. Ensure a nutrient rich soil as it is the foundation of a good yield
3. Ensure that the soil is well draining while also being rich in nutrients
4. Fertilise whenever advised and maintain soil quality
5. One of the safest bets is to go for pre-mixed potting mixes for vegetables provided by trusted sellers.
6. Poor quality soil equates to poor or no yield.

What are the best organic fertilizers for growing vegetables at home?

Growing vegetables required regular fertilisation both in fields and in homes. Organic fertilisers ensure a healthy chemical free and organic produce excellent for our daily consumption. Some of the best organic fertilisers for growing vegetables at home are
1. Organic manure or compost: it is one of the basic and the easiest ways to give nutrients to soil. It is mixed in the soil at the time of potting. Select a good rich organic fertiliser.
2. Lime: It is important to maintain the pH of the soil to facilitate absorption of nutrients, as certain nutrients absorption stops at values below specific pH. Lime is always used along with other fertilisers.
3. Slow releasing fertilisers for vegetables: These have twice as much phosphorous than nitrogen or potassium and are made specifically for fruiting plants, the slow release quality ensures a regular supply in the growing season. While nitrogen is responsible for foliage (leafy greens), phosphorous aids rooting and flowering, and potassium helps in fruit shape, colour, size, and taste.
4. Liquid fish emulsion, bone meal, organic liquid blends are great organic sources of many primary and secondary nutrients for vegetables.

Which vegetables can be grown from home kitchen without seeds?

Many vegetables can be grown from the ingredients we find in our kitchen, be it seeds that we use, cuts of vegetables that we so readily throw away, or vegetables that can be used to grow more of their kind. This is a list of vegetables you can grow at home from kitchen scraps:
1. Spring onions: simply place the white head portion of the spring onions in a glass of water (submerge the onion head) and watch the greens grow. While harvesting, cut only the greens and watch it grow back at least 3 to 4 times from the same head.
2. Celery, fennel bulbs, lettuce, bokchoy: simply place the head/bulb/stalk section of the vegetables in water using proper support (toothpicks) and wait for the roots to appear. This will be shortly followed by the greens, harvest the greens till it stops growing back. Keep changing the water once it gets cloudy.
3. Beetroots, turnips, carrots, radishes: place the cut heads of the vegetables in a shallow dish of water and wait for the greens to grow. The greens can be harvested for salads or the cut heads can be transplanted to soil once roots appear for getting new vegetables form the cuttings.
4. Basil, mint, coriander: when you but fresh mint, coriander, or basil: Simply place 3-4 inch long cuttings in water with only a couple of small leaves at the top. Make sure that at least a couple of leaf nodes ( points from where leaves emerge) are submerged in water. Place it in a well-lit spot with indirect light and transplant to a well-draining soil once roots appear.
5. Tomatoes: cut a disc from a tomato and ensure that the slice has seeds. Simply place it flat on a bed of moist soil and cover it with 1-2 cm of cocopeat and keep it moist, the seedlings will appear in a week.
6. Melons, gourds, peas, lemons, beans: They can be grown by germinating the seeds in water or in a wet tissue and then planting them in soil.
7. Chillies, capsicum, bell peppers: These can be grown from the seeds in the chilli pods. Simply scatter the seeds form a ripe pod in a moist soil and let the plants grow
