growing seeds

Zone 6 | Cheyenne added on April 20, 2012 | Answered

Over the years I have planted seeds indoors so I can have a nice potted plant area in my backyard. Every single time I've tried to do this (both flowers and vegetables) they sprout, grow a few inches, then die off. What am I doing wrong?
