All Vegetable Seeds
Growing tomatoes, peppers and other vegetable plants from seeds is economical and rewarding for home gardeners. While some vegetables, such as potatoes, lettuce and peas, are directly sown into the garden soil, others, like tomatoes and peppers, are started indoors in the spring and transplanted to the garden after the danger of spring frost has passed. Often seed packets provide information on days to germination, days to maturity, and the planting depth and spacing of seeds. Most vegetables grow best in full sun and well-drained soil. When selecting the best vegetable seeds to buy, some factors to consider are flavor, appearance, yields and disease resistance.
