Just remember that in order to start the seeds, you need to simply fill each pot with regular potting soil, and then tuck the seeds into the soil – the depth will be specified on the packet – and mist with water. It is worth it to buy a mister solely for this purpose, just so you know, and if you don’t already have one, thsn it is still worth it because you can use it to dampen your clothes before ironing them or train your kitten not to jump up on the table, for instance.

Just remember to have patience, especially if you have never done this sort of thing before, and remember that it is a learning experience and that what you should be worried most about is you having fun.
