    It depends on what sort of seeds they are, your climate and where you are starting them (indoors or out).

    Starting them indoors. They are different veggies, and flowers.

    Not a stupid question.
    Some are seeded directly into the garden and the others can be started inside but you have to know when it's safe to plant and count back from that to see when you should start them. The packages tell you how long till germination and all kinds of info on how deep to plant etc. Lots of info on those seed packages and it's amazing how some sprout and grow fast and others take so long.
    Here's a couple of sites that may help a bit.

    A general rule of thumb is that smaller seeds are planted more shallowly than larger seeds. For example a big old bean seed goes at least an inch deep, but a tiny carrot seed only 1/8" deep. Darlene is right that the packages contain a lot of information. Please feel free to post more specific questions. I love talking about gardening.
