new book vs. old book

Post  Mikesgardn on 3/22/2010, 9:34 pm

I bought the original book years ago, and I always followed the directions for planting the seeds directly in the garden soil (layout each square with your finger, poke holes with a pencil, place seed in each hole, and backfill with vermiculite). I read the new book, and it no longer discusses this. The new book only discusses planting seeds in cups of vermiculite for transplanting into the garden later. Has anyone else noticed that?
