Sowing Vegetable Seeds Directly Into the Ground
Raising strong and healthy plants is a crucial part of successful vegetable gardening. Most vegetables can be easily grown from seed but there are a few that are not usually grown in this way. Potatoes are grown from 'seed potatoes' and alliums, with the exception of leeks, are grown from what is known as 'sets'. When growing vegetables from seed you can choose to do it one of two ways. The first is 'direct sowing' which is putting the seed directly in the ground, or sowing seed in trays or individual pots to be planted out later.
