The Q&A Archives: starting seeds

Question: When should I start seeds as a classroom project. What seeds will give the best results. Thank you Ruth Ann

Answer: You can start seeds any time of year in your classroom. Beans will sprout in a styrofoam cup; marigolds will, too. Both make great windowsill gardens. If you want to start seeds for an outdoor garden, wait until April. Once the seedlings are about 6 weeks old they can go outdoors and that's about the time that spring planting can begin in your gardening region. Beans, marigolds, radishes and sweetpeas are all fun to grow. Enjoy your project!
