Spring Gardening

As the spring gardening season nears, gardeners willing to go the extra mile can get a jump start with this year's vegetable and flower plants.

Seedlings are sensitive and need the proper care to help immature plants grow, and starting your seeds indoors allows you to monitor the conditions around the plant. Associate Professor of Plant Sciences at the University of Missouri, David Trinklein, says proper soil is a key in any successful garden.

Trinklein says it is helpful to start your seeds indoors so you can avoid accidentally planting before the 50/50 Frost Free date.
