    Its really very easy to grow from seeds. I usually get starter soil, and then I already have old small pots left from last year. Now that its getting warmer i fill the pots or anything i can get hold of and start seeds.
    Last year i could only do marigold, and a few more flowers. in veggies i did okra, and green gourd.
    This year yet to decide. Am short listing right now.

    Seeds need starter soil to get started. this is ver light soil is sold by name in most big stores. Fill small 3 inch pot with 3/4 ht with soil. lightly place 1 seed in it press very lightly and spray water lightly. continue till seedling grows stong. I also have the big tray where i plant many seeds at one time. Only when seedling is strong and temperatures have improved do i plant it outside on soil.
    What flowers are u looking at now.
