Saving and storing seeds from your own vegetable and herb crops is a thrifty way to perpetuate your favorite varieties from year to year. Open-pollinated varieties, including heirlooms, are the best candidates for seed saving. Unlike hybrids, their genetic traits are more likely to remain stable from generation to generation—although, if you’re saving seeds to be used for growing microgreens or sprouts, genetic stability is less important.
One of the most frustrating things about starting seeds is waiting for them to emerge from the soil. Pre sprouting seeds germinates seeds before planting. This saves time, eliminates thinning, and conserves space.
