I agree that supporting local nurseries is good but I’ve never found growing from seed to be that hard either. There are so many variables in gardening, especially with the addition of climate change and all the other human created problems. There is no one recipe for how to do it right. I think now more than ever it’s about experimenting until you find balance. A little of this and a little of that might be better than resorting to one way. Of course balance is hard to find when the world is out of balance.
