The Q&A Archives: Seeds Vs. Plants

Question: I live in a semi-warm climate (8). Is it better to plant seeds or plants for best results?

Answer: You can have good results with either. A main reason to use transplants is that it gives a "jump start" on the season, especially if you live in a short season area. That way plants have a better chance of getting established and producing before fall frost. You can also start your own transplants from seeds indoors 6-10 weeks before planting them outside. Hope this info helps!
