    Start your seeds indoors

    Growing plants from seeds is economical, but it also allows you to raise more varieties of flowers and vegetables than can be found at stores and nurseries.

    Start them inside while it’s still cold outside, and they’ll be ready for planting once the chance of frost is past.

    Using a seed-starting mix, which creates optimal conditions for sprouting seeds, sow seeds in pots or containers. Cover with the mix, according to the seeds’ planting requirements.

    Cover the containers with plastic to hold in humidity and check frequently to make sure they’re staying moist. As soon as leaves pop up, remove the plastic and place near your sunniest window under a stand with a fluorescent light fixture to serve as your grow light.

    Keep the light just an inch or two above the plants for about 16 hours a day, raising it as the plants grow. After the first set of true leaves emerges, fertilize seedlings twice a week with a half-strength, liquid fertilizer.

    Once the seedlings reach a couple of inches, transplant them into larger pots or prepare them for your garden.

    If you’re planting them outside, they must be hardened off, which toughens them up from their protected environment so they can thrive in real weather conditions.

    To harden them off, stop fertilizing and reduce watering — but don’t allow wilting — about a week to 10 days before setting them out. Take plants outside for about an hour or so of filtered light, increasing that time each day before planting.

    In transplanting, bury the stem up to the first set of true leaves. The plant will root out from the stem, making it stronger. Give each new transplant a boost with a half-dose of liquid fertilizer and make sure they’re watered enough until the plants are well established.
