In most northern climates, gardeners have long known about the benefits gained when you start seeds indoors. In particular when using seeds to start their own vegetable and flower plants. Not only can you choose the exact plant variety you want to grow in your garden, but you also will be able to maintain the organic growing conditions that may not exist from commercially-grown plants.
