    As long as the seedlings are at a south facing window (in the Northern Hemisphere) it should work out great. Sunlight and warmth is what germinates them.

    I'd rather get the seedling tomato plants. If I had a big property and a greenhouse, I'd plant from scratch.

    Most vegetables are planted from seed, around the May long weekend.

    We may be able to plant early this year. The ground is already getting warm.

    I like to have at least two of everything so that I have a spare just in case something happens to the one. Allegedly rosemary is supposed to help deter cats, but the neighborhood cats will just crawl right up to mine and take a nap, so I suspect the person who decided it was a repellent is full of beans.

    I was too late with my seeds, so I'm going to have to save them for next year and start them early. Now I'll have to buy actual plants this year. I'm going to get rosemary, thyme and oregano, because those are the herbs I use the most and I have three HUGE pots to plant them in.

    My rosemary and thyme are perennials and the oregano self seeds. It just take a little longer than buying live plants.

    I can't really start seeds indoors because there isn't enough sunlight, and where there is sunlight there really isn't any place to put them. Do you think the seeds will still be good next year?

    My flowers that I planted are being killed by the rain we've been getting around here. It is ridiculous! :rolleyes:

    Yes. You need to start them indoors about 3 months before spring if you want to try that again.

    Hope to eventually grow, year, around. But, I need plant shelters, for that.
