Melinda’s Garden: Seed Starting

Save some money and start something green indoors.

If you do it right, it’s not just fun — it can save you some significant cash compared to buying full-grown, established plants from a nursery.

Let Melinda Myers sow some seeds of inspiration to grow your own plants from seed in this week’s Melinda’s Garden moment.
