Starting SeedsStarting Seeds

You may want to start your own plants from seed, either to save money or to grow special varieties not readily available as transplants.   That’s one of the most satisfying aspects of growing your own food – enjoying beautiful gourmet organic vegetables you just can’t get at the store.   Many people start some of their plants from seed and buy plants of the more common varsities.

A few plants, particularly some herbs, are not “true” when grown from seed and should be purchased as plants or started from cuttings.   Other plants, such as root vegetables, are best sown directly into the garden.  Check in Crops A-Z.

Don’t be intimated!  It’s not difficult to start your own plants from seed.  And, remember “practice makes perfect”. These are (again, in our opinion) best practices for starting seeds.
