However, it is not necessarily that simple to grow plants from seeds. This article was designed to introduce the reader to a number of the most common mistakes made by people when growing plants from seeds for the first time.

Vegetables that can easily be grow from seeds:

* Beans- Bean plants thrive in warm, moist soil. Bush beans need no support, but pole beans do need to climb something, such as poles, strings, trellises, or tepee

* Beets -Beet roots will develop quickly and uniformly in loose soil, so before planting, work the soil to remove clumps and stones.

* Carrots – It is important to provide well drained and soft soil. Mix in some sand and really loosen it up. Space properly.

* Cucumbers – amend the soil with a fertilizer high in nitrogen and potassium to support large yields.

* Kale – plant in early spring and kale will grow until it gets too hot. Plant again the fall. Kale only gets sweeter in cold weather.

* Lettuce – Lettuce grows slows in shade; it is also slower to go to seed, or “bolt.”

* Peas – To harvest a continuous supply of peas during the summer, simultaneously sow varieties with different maturity dates. Then sow more seeds about 2 weeks later. Continue this pattern

* Pumpkins – rich in compost because they’re greedy eaters. Water often as they drink a lot, too. Plant seeds on a mound and give them plenty of room

* Radishes – radish seeds are natural companions to carrots. Mix radish seeds with carrot seeds before you sow, especially if your soil tends to develop a tough crust. Radish sprouts will push up through the soil, breaking it up for the later sprouting carrots.

* Squash – Like pumpkins, squash and zucchini also like well-composted soil and need plenty of space (3 to 6 feet apart, warm soil, and lots of sun.) Always water at the soil level—not the leaves—to avoid powdery mildew.
