I would like to buy some seeds for flowers that are 2' tall or less and I would like to know what kinds of seeds I should or can plant now in my garage with my grow lights now. Thanks.

Hi Michael and welcome. We need to know what part of the world your garden is in before recommending plants for you to grow. Please fill in your profile to show at least city/state/country so we know your climatic conditions.

It would also help if you can tell us where in your yard you will be planting these flowers - full sun? half day sun ? shade under trees? in beds, or in containers like large pots? etc. Post some pictures of the area if you can?

Also, are going to be buying seeds in a store or ordering them from a catalog or online? Online you can find many more options that will fit the size specifications you need compared to just going to a seed rack in a store. Lots of common flowers you may like have a range of sizes (zinnia, marigold, sweet peas, etc.) but you may only be able to find the shorter varieties online. And if you want plants that are less common you'd have to order from a seed company to find them.
