I have been growing plants from seeds for at least 20 years. I have grown literally hundreds of different kinds of vegetables, trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, some cacti, water plants, iris, rose, lilies, cannas, etc. I enjoy starting from seed.
I've been growing my own seeds for 20 years with indoor propagation equipment I built myself. I am also an Allexperts volunteer on the perennial forum. I have completed the Master Gardener course through the Kansas State University Extension. I have experience with a wide variety of seeds and I have also read through Norm Deno's books on seed germination.
I get a big kick out of watching something come to life. Emerge seedlings give me a big thrill to see Nature at work.
I hope I never stop learning and that there will always be a new adventure for me around the corner.
Growing from seed is only as diffiult as your understanding or lack of understanding at how a seed works.
GMO seeds. I'm totally anti-GMO.

Hi Osaam, Thanx for your question. I answered a question like this a few years ago. Here's a copy of my answer (this is on cuttings). I'm also including a link about starting the plant from seeds.
Hi Tony, Thanx for your question. This is really a question for a professional and I will give you some contacts below. I am just a hobbyist and not university-trained but I am self-taught and I do
Hi Rich, Thanx for your question. I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. I have only sampled honeysuckle a few times and it all tasted the same to me...the best I can describe it is "honeyish"
Hi Joseph, Thanx for your question. Red Sunset Maple trees are cultivars (hybrids), so, plants grown from seed will not come true to the parents. This is due to the instability of genetics in hybrids
