Growing flowers, herbs and vegetables from seed is easier than you might think – it’s also incredibly rewarding, good value for money and a really fun project to do with young children. These few propagation essentials and a few simple tips will help get you off to a good start. First, set up in an indoor space, such as a greenhouse, conservatory or kitchen windowsill.
