Buying young plants from a greenhouse is a nice shortcut for home gardeners, but with the right selection, proper preparation and a little patience you can successfully start your garden from seeds. And there is a far greater variety of fruit, vegetable and flower seeds available locally and online than the plants you can typically find at your garden center.
Joining us with suggestions on choosing and preparing seeds for planting in your garden and to answer your questions are Campbell County Extension Office Horticulture Agent Sarah Stolz; Turner Farm Community Garden Manager Joshua Jones; and Boone County Cooperative Extension Horticulture extension agent David Koester.
