Seeds in container

Dear Ed,
How many seeds should I plant in each container? I plan to grow in 20-litre pots.


Start each seed in an individual container. Rather than germinating the seeds in the large containers, use two to four-inch pots so that many seeds can be sown. Then the best plants can be selected to grow in the large pot.
