Starting garden vegetables from seed has several advantages. Seeds are often much less expensive than purchased transplants. There is also a greater variety of options when you are starting from seeds. When you grow from seed, you aren’t limited to planting what your local nursery or big box store has in stock.
Arguably the biggest benefit is that plants grown from seeds can be planted at the optimal planting time for your location. Planting at the correct time is crucial for success.
