Brilliant Seed ID

A little play sand will help keep seeds located in the garden

Family Handyman

When you sow new seeds in the spring, it’s hard to remember exactly where they’re planted before they sprout. That’s a problem when putting in other seeds and plants and even for watering, especially if you plant in curved rows. To make my rows easy to find, I sprinkle a little play sand over the seeds as I plant them. The seeds sprout right through the sand, I know exactly where to water, and the sand helps keep the weeds down while providing good drainage. — Steve Virgilio.
