    I really don't know what I am doing, just gathering everything together the book says I need to start seeds. Does this forum have a thread for absolute beginners in seed starting?
    Thanks so much for your help!

    I do a lot of seedlings, so buy a bale of Pro-Mix. I love it and a bale will last me 2 - 3 years depending on how many seedlings or potting I do. economically, I don't think you'll find a better deal if you have somewhere to store it. I leave it sitting outside my garage on 2 x 4's, under the overhang, so it doesn't get wet. I just need to remember to bring it inside before I need to start seedlings so it will thaw out!
