Are you debating on the seeds that you are going to use for your next year of gardening? Have you considered making up your own germination bed for those seeds to give them a longer time to grow before being transported to your garden outdoors?

If you are wondering what the benefits could be for this, you will find that the number one reason would be the sturdiness you give your plants as they ready themselves for the heartier weather outside of your greenhouse.

Another would be the cost-saving you will gain from these types of beds. You can keep your seeds from the previous season from expiring or dying because you are keeping them heated through a germinated bed you have made for them.

The third reason for having one or even a few of these is that they are pretty easy to make. You just need an available bench within your greenhouse, some framing wood, sand, insulation board, and sand. You can add a top like the one below to help regulate the temperature even more and reuse those planters you got with the plants you purchased last year. With these beds, you can help your seedlings become the hearty plants you want for your garden during the winter months while they remain safely tucked inside these beds within your greenhouse. As an added bonus, you will also find some alternate germination beds that can also work great for your needs. You will find that this article is full of ideas on how to make the most of your germinating period for your seedlings.
