For questions about sowing seeds.

Gardeners will often start plants by sowing seeds. Although many will fail to germinate, they are still much cheaper than buying plants, and there is the satisfaction of growing a large plant or tree from a tiny seed.

Use this tag for all questions about sowing seeds. Include the type of plant/seed as their requirements can vary greatly. Climate and time of year may also be important. As well as timing, questions may cover subjects such as the type of soil/compost, depth of seed, heat, and watering requirements.
