|About the Site|
Success with Seed is the name of our site and our wish for all gardeners who attempt gardening from seed. Whether you start your seeds indoors using elaborate equipment or just direct sow in your backyard, you will find useful information here. This site is based on the contents of Park's Success with Seed, second edition, written by Karen Park Jennings, and published in 2006 by the Park Seed Company.
The Sow & Grow and Step-by-Step tabs provide detailed information to help you get your seeds started, strengthened, and safely transplanted. The Flowers, Vegetables, and Plant Cross Reference tabs contain extensive plant lists that can link you to culture information, accompanied by photos of the seed, seedling, and mature specimen for each plant. Also check Snips & Sprouts twice monthly for a new article of interest to seed-loving gardeners.
In addition to informative content, this site provides you with opportunities to share questions and ideas with other gardeners. We invite you to explore to your heart's content, and also to give us your ideas for improving and extending the site. We hope you'll join some of the forums and also send questions to Ask SwS.
In addition to contents from the book, the other writing you'll encounter on this site is from Anne Moore, our resident horticulture guru, fellow garden-lover, and award-winning writer.

"Planting a garden of annuals is like discovering the fountain of youth-at least for a season. Their bright flowers remain relatively unchanged until they are snuffed out by frost."
