The primary question between the two is what to use in vegetable gardening. Some people like to use seeds, while others prefer to use seedlings. The common seeds for vegetable or fruit grow slower when compared to seedlings. Most seedlings sprout in two weeks or less.

There are some vegetables whose germination rate is slower than most plants. Even if you plant these as seedlings, you shouldn't expect results too soon. Seeds are often much cheaper compared to purchasing seedlings that have developed minor roots and premature stems.

Seeds are also seeds encapsulated embryonic plants, while seedlings have recently sprouted. Choosing whether to use seeds or seedlings is a personal preference. It also helps to have some gardening wisdom under your belt. It depends upon the urgency of your harvest, such as if you want to grow your fruits and vegetables more quickly.

A seed is a small embryonic plant that is inside a tiny little jacket called a seed coat. Inside this casing can also be stored food. Seeds are the final result of a ripened ovule of the seed carrying of plants with flowering plants that pursue the fertilization procedure. On the other hand, a seedling is an embryo that has just sprouted. It is a kind of baby plant.

Mature seeds work best with plants that have long growing seasons. Seedlings work best for fast-changing warm to cold climate regions. Seeds are usually less expensive than seedlings, and both seeds and seedlings are used for growing fruits and vegetables.
