Hi,

I was just reading your article Why Bother Starting Seeds Indoors? and thought I would add an advantage to growing plants from seeds that you didn’t include.

When I first started growing plants of all kinds, I only did so by sowing seeds. I continued that way for many years. And I didn’t start having problems with insect pests (mealybugs, aphids, etc.) until I started buying plants in nurseries instead of buying seeds.

So, starting plants from seed helps prevent importing pests!

Thank you!

Patrick

And thank you, Patrick, for your comment, which hereby I’m sharing with my readers. 

You’re absolutely right: seeds in seed packets are naturally pest-free, a major plus for any gardener!
