Here's How To... Grow Your Own Starts

Starting your own plants from seed can give you a wider choice of cultivars than what you can often find as transplants at the local garden center. It also ensures that you will have healthy plants at the right time to set out.

If you want the very latest types of plants or want to try growing heirloom varieties, you usually have to get the seed from mail-order sources.

Once you have the seeds in hand, however, you have to get them to germinate and grow in order to have useable transplants for the garden.  And this is where many gardeners face frustration.  Sometimes the seed fails to germinate or, once germinated, it doesn't grow as it should, resulting in poor quality transplants.

Growing plants from seed is not complicated if you know a few basic seed germination tips.
