    Hi AnandChitra
    Your pictures r good which r helpful in planting.The pots in the second picture looks like cardboard egg trays which i saw them in walmart.
    My doubt is
    Do I have to plant seeds in these trays first & after germinating ,whether we have to transfer into big pots? or
    can I plant the seeds directly in the big/required size pot for that plant?
    If possible I may plant methi plants this year.Can I plant them with the methi seeds which r used in cooking or have to buy some where else?
    regards

    You can do both ways.I am having larger volume so have to do this way and see my last photo that shows the beds i am getting ready.
    I have heard methi seeds that we use for cooking will work too. some seeds need extra pampering so a greenhouse effect works better:)

    Thank you Chitra
    so if we use those trays then we have to transfer them into bigger pots.right!!!
    I don't know much about gardening that's why asking such silly questions.
    Thank you for ur patience & immediate response.
    But still i am having a small doubt.What is green house effect for germination.any extra care to be taken for germination?
    regards

    If you place seed in pot and moisten/ wet it and then place this in a closed environment the condensation that forms will speed up germination.
    Dont worry about asking Q I hope this helps.

    Great start, Anandchitra!

    I'm planning to grow veggies in pots and bags for easy moving. Had to leave a few plants behind in my earlier house.

    Happy gardening!
