Easy Seeds for Beginnners

Marigold
Marigolds are easy to start because the seeds are fairly large.
If you are a beginning seed starter, start with "easy seeds" that are quick to germinate and don't require a lot of extra fussing. It's easy to get carried away and buy too many different seed packets If you are starting seeds for the first time, you may want to limit yourself to no more than ten different types of seedlings.

Here are some good choices:

  • Tomato
  • Basil
  • Marigold
  • Zinnia
  • Coleus
  • Nasturtium
  • Cosmos
