Have you ever wanted to start plants from seed instead of buying seedlings from a local nursery?
A lot of gardeners and urban farmers do just that. Why? For different reasons….
Necessity. Seedlings of unusual, heirloom or exotic plants simply aren't available at garden stores, but they are available in seed. Then there's the cost factor. A few packets of seeds are much cheaper than dozens upon dozens of seedlings.
And of course, there's the plants' health to consider. Plants grown from seed get a healthy start that can almost guarantee you a magnificent display in your garden. And those are some of the key reasons why we wanted to offer you The Gardener's A-Z Guide to Growing Flowers from Seed to Bloom.
