Synopsis: Whether broadcast across a prepared seedbed or tucked into a container of growing medium, seeds hold the promise of something much bigger--juicy tomatoes, lush foliage, and brilliant blossoms. And growing plants from seed is easy and inexpensive (as well as rewarding) for the gardener ready to try new or regional varieties. Seed Starts & Smarts features sowing and growing advice for more than 70 edible garden crops--including vegetables, herbs, and fruits--along with tips and techniques for growing the most popular ornamentals from seed, region-specific information, and general timing guidelines.
