Hi there, I'm venturing into the world of Vegetable Gardening this year. Basically, I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm reading and learning and doing the best I can.
I'm trying to make a shopping list of things I need to go buy to start my seeds indoors. So far, I've only got:
-Fluffy light potting mix
- fertilizer (15-15-15, whatever that means!)
That brings me to my question - I have no idea how many seeds to buy/plant, and consequently no idea how many containers I'll need to plant them in. A friend of mine said that he plants 60 containers of seeds per type of vegetable, keeps the strong plants and gives away the weak ones. Is this a bit excessive or is that normal? Also, is there anything wrong with my list? Thanks!
