A tip for gardeners...

Here is a tip for new and old gardeners.

When planting seeds, they need moisture and warmth.

When watering the new seeds and seedlings, use warm water.

Using cold water will make the plants stop growing.

Warm water encourages the plants to grow tricking them into thinking the weather is warmer than it is.

I have done this for years and it works like a charm.
