What are the benefits of planting seeds vs seedlings?

1 answer
Expert Answer

Starting from seed is much cheaper. A punnet containing six lettuce seedlings can cost twice as much as a packet of lettuce seeds, which in turn is likely to contain enough seeds to grow hundreds of plants. Growing from seed will also give you access to a whole range of different plant varieties, both heirloom and hybrid, which simply aren’t available to buy as seedlings since they are not grown by commercial nurseries.
