A Seed is a baby plant.
The softest breeze can carry a seed and where it falls, in just the right place, a new life can begin. Trees and vegetation begin as seeds. Wind, water, and animals move seeds around. A seed that gets enough water and sunlight will sprout. Soon, a seedling will come up from the ground.
Different kinds of plants have different kinds of seeds. Some seeds are big, example a coconut, others are small, example wheat, yet some are flat, example pumpkin. All seeds contain stored food and are waiting to grow.
With the right light and some simple equipment you can begin planting seeds in your garden. The following are some plants that are easy for a beginner to grow:

They are easy, but you must take a little bit of care while sowing. You must provide the required germination: warmth, moisture and oxygen for the plants. Growing plants from seeds is much cheaper than buying the plants.
