Excitement as you approach your growing pots – tiny green leaves have emerged from the cool dark dirt! The seeds you planted have sprung to life. Starting your own seedlings has many benefits for the home gardener. Growing from seed is more cost-effective than buying seedlings, and there are many more vegetable crops and varieties to choose from. Gardeners can have their pick of thousands of rare heirlooms including varieties particularly adapted to their climate and growing needs. We will discuss techniques for starting seedlings, edibles with specific starting needs, tips for caring for seedlings, and best practices for transplanting.
