The Benefits of Growing Cut Flowers By Seed

2. Nurseries and garden centers often carry a limited selection of popular varieties.

3. Growing from seed is often more cost-effective. A packet of seeds typically costs less than buying individual seedlings and can produce many plants.


4. Starting from seeds allows gardeners to control the growing environment from the very beginning.


This includes using specific soil types, organic growing mediums, and non-chemical fertilizers.

5. Seeds grown at home can be better acclimatized to the local environment which can result in stronger, more resilient plants.
