a bed where seedlings are grown before transplanting
a small plot of land where the seeds will be planted and nurtured, until the "sprouts" are large enough to transplant into the fields
Land which has been cultivated sufficiently to provide a fine enough particle size and is firm enough to allow seeds to germinate quickly and evenly.
The soil prepared by natural or artificial means to promote the germination of seed and the growth of seedlings.
The soil upon which wild seeds are deposited. Its characteristics will influence whether or not germination occurs and whether or not the resulting seedlings will thrive. Many North Country species have fairly narrow seedbed requirements.
A seedbed is a specially prepared area of the garden that has been made suitable for the sowing and germination of plant seeds.
