Planting Seeds In Peat Pots - Knowledgebase Question

I sell new homes in Washington County, Maryland. I am hosting an event for all homeowners in which they will be able to plant seeds in peat pots. This is so they will be able to start a garden when their new home is complete. Children will also be involved. What types of seeds should I buy for planting in peat pots? They can be either indoor or outdoor plants. I'm also looking for the best value.

Without knowing how long they will need to keep the plants it is a bit difficult to make a suggestion. In my experience, sunflowers do very well started in peat pots, the seeds are large enough for small children to handle easily, they germinate fast and can be transplanted quickly. For a longer term project, they might use marigold seeds or even cherry tomato seeds. Sicne they need use only a few seeds per pot, the cost should be pretty reasonable no matter what you select.
