Whether you sow seeds directly into a garden bed or raise them in punnets or pots first, there are lots of benefits to sowing your own.
The main advantage over buying established seedlings is the much wider range of varieties available - and the fun you can have growing them. Seeds are also cheaper than seedlings.
And the best bit? Seeds are naturally designed to succeed. Each one of them is a storeroom of life just waiting for its time to shine, and given the right conditions, it will.
