How many seeds do I plant in a seed starter kit cell?
I'm sure this is one of those questions that almost all gardeners know except for us brand new planters.
I just bought a 36 cell greenhouse kit ( http://www.amazon.com/GREENHOUSE-KIT-PREMIUM-36-CELL/dp/B001F9P5G4 ) so that I can start some herb and pepper seeds.
What I am unsure of is how many seeds I should put in each cell.
The instructions for the greenhouse kit says 2 - 3 but all my herbs and especially the pepper seeds say that the plants have to be at least an inch apart.
So is the purpose of putting multiple seeds in so that at least one will sprout? If all three come in do I cut off the two weakest ones or do I transfer all three seedlings into their own containers after they sprout? Should I ignore the instructions for the greenhouse and just plant one seed per cell?
