How many seeds to start?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm going to be starting seeds indoors for the first time this year. I've done a lot a reading and I'm fairly confident I can do this. My only question now is how many seeds should I start? For example, I want to plant 4 tomato plants, so many seeds should I start in order to be sure I get 4 good ones?

I would start 10 and pick the best ones.  I do winter sowing and they seem to come up when they want.  I let them do their own thing.  It's really easy. You just need a gallon or half gallon milk or juice jug, soil and your seeds.  Set them out and just water if you need to, no lights needed.  I don't even put soil over my tomato seeds, just press them into the soil a little bit and your good to go.
