Starting Seeds Indoors - Perennial Flower Plugs for the Vegetable Garden: The Rusted Garden 2013
I use coconut husk as a seed starting mix. Perennial flowers are a great way to bring pollinating insects and 'good' bugs to your garden. I recommended starting perennial plugs in your house. You can do this about 6-8 weeks before the time you would put peas in your garden. If you have room for holding bigger transplants in your house, you can go a few weeks earlier.
I use a perennial seed mix and over-seed the cells. The perennials are a pretty hardy group. You are making a plug with lots of plants and just tucking them in your vegetable garden or wild flower garden. The strongest will survive and grow and spread seeds.
