It's our first year in our own single family home. I want to put flowers in the flower bed in front, along one side, and in the back. Buying flats of flowers and just transplanting is easy (I watched my parents do this, heck I helped!) and they usually "take" and grow nicely. But it gets real expensive, real fast for the amount of space I want to fill in. Seeds are very cheap, but I've never started flowers from seeds. How difficult is this and is it worth whatever extra effort it might take. Target had a lovely seed collection when I looked last week. We're going to have to spend a lot of money this year just getting the soil in shape for the flowers (landscaping was neglected for several year prior to our buying the home) so I won't have a lot in the budget to spend on plants themselves. Any ideas are welcome!
