    If only it were that easy. As every gardener eventually discovers, seed-starting can be one of the most difficult parts of gardening.

    Seed-starting is the subject of this week’s episode of Off The Grid Radio, as we examine common mistakes and look at a few tricks that can help your seeds sprout.

    Craig tells us:

    • What type of soil to use.
