Where can I locate seeds that are specifically recommended for using in a greenhouse? We are building our first greenhouse and I understand that there are certain seeds developed for greenhouse use. Thanks for your help!

There are some plants that are more suitable for greenhouse growing than others, but any seed can be germinated under greenhouse conditions. The important things to remember are that all seeds need sterilized seed starting mix, reasonable light, warmth, and adequate moisture to get them off to a good start. There are a number of books pertaining to growing in greenhouses. Try the book 'Foolproof Planting' by Rodale Press, ISBN# 0-87857-876-5, for some great seed starting tips.
