Easy From Seed Flowers

Some flowers are not just easy to grow from seed, they actually perform better when sown directly in the garden. They will not suffer transplant stress, and many prefer to get their start in cooler spring weather. Try it! You’ll have more flowers at less expense, and you’ll attract pollinators. Plus, it’s fun!
