Why Start Fall Vegetable Seedlings?
When you want new plants for the late summer and fall time period you almost have to start those plants from seed yourself; seedlings are seldom available in the garden center for fall crops. This way you can choose from dozens of varieties of each flower or vegetable rather than from just a few at the nursery. Finally, once you've learned the tricks, you can grow healthier and stronger seedlings than you can purchase from the store anyway.
While most of the techniques for starting fall seedlings are the same as for spring seedlings, the timing is quite different and some of the care techniques are quite different, so check out the tips in the buttons on the left side of this screen.
