 Tips for Successfully Starting Your Seeds 

Crops that you would typically want to direct-sow are usually going to be grown in rows or clusters rather than as individual plants. Also, if the variety can take a very long time to mature, it makes for a good candidate for starting indoors.

Do your research to learn about what varieties don't like their roots disturbed! These should always be direct-sown to avoid any "shock" that would occur when you would need to transplant them into your garden.
