HELP!! Hello, I am a VERY amateur gardener. Actually, I'm not technically a gardener at all - yet... I'm also new here, and I'm hoping some veterans can help me. I'm planning on growing my own garden this year. The soil in my back yard is weedy and full of rocks/garbage/etc, so I'm planning on using plastic storage containers with holes in the bottom for planting. So, here are a few questions: Is it really SOOO hard to plant from seeds? Where can I get instructions on how many seeds to sow in one spot, how to (is this true?) break up the plants when they start growing? How often to water certain seeds. The packages are no use whatsoever. They only say far apart to sow them. What I really need is a good resource to answer my questions, and online I have been unsuccessful. Books are ok, but it's hard to find them for my location (Toronto, ON). Can anyone give me tips/advice, anything? So far I have bought seeds for tomatoes (bush beefsteak), green beans and carrots. I
