Starting your own plants from heirloom or hybrid seeds can be a rewarding experience and give you the satisfaction of watching them grow from a tiny seed to a full grown plant and knowing that you are growing the healthiest plants possible.
All you need is a sunny windowsill or somewhere that has the proper lighting and warmth, potting soil or you can use soil-less mixtures, containers, and a little direction and know how to get you started. Having the proper light can sometimes be a challenge but try adding some indoor grow lights and you can give your plants the proper start they need.
After you decide what you are going to grow then you need to get the seeds and read the directions of the back of the seed packet and follow them so that your plants get the proper nutrition, lighting, and will get a good start with the proper organic fertilizer and your loving touch. Each plant or species whether flowers or vegetables have a variety of individual needs that need to be followed to ensure a healthy sturdy plant that will grow outdoors when the time is right.
