Regardless of the type of seeds you’re planting, keep these simple steps for how to grow seeds indoors on your to-do list:

  • Before purchasing seeds of all kinds, check the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map to be sure the plants will thrive in your region. This is especially important once seedlings are transplanted into a traditional outdoor garden or container.
  • Seeds are generally sown indoors approximately six weeks before your area experiences its last frost of the season.
  • Start with clean containers devoid of debris or remnants of old soil or roots from other plants.
  • Mark containers with the name of what’s growing inside. This makes it easier to follow any specific instructions for each herb, vegetable or flower.

You can also start seeds indoors for your favorite farmer’s market flowers.
