Is it a good idea to start all seeds indoors even if they say plant in direct soil? Will they grow better if you start them indoors?

You do not need to start all indoors unless the weather is cooler where you are and you simply want to get a jump on the season. Many people choose to start them indoors since it allows the plants to get some size on them and become stronger prior to transplanting outside in about mid-spring. Those that are directly sown in the garden are fine to plant per label instructions.
