Plants under lights

Blooming indoor plants help keep cabin fever at bay. I planted these Impatiens in November. These are planted in yogurt cups with holes in the bottom. The containers will be washed and reused for years. The cups came with plastic covers which are put on the cups until the seeds have sprouted their first true leaves, then removed. I’ll put these plants in my garden come May. In the meantime, there are a few plants to tend and colorful blossoms to enjoy. As they get a little leggy, I pinch the plants back. These have just been pinched back. It is amazing how quickly the plants respond with new growth. Besides the Impatiens, I also have some Primula coming on from seed. I’ll soon start some herbs and vegetables.
