Materials Required
* Fresh seeds of pumpkin, sunflower, lima beans or pinto beans * Loose, aerated good quality soil * A container to hold the soil and your seeds * Water * Light * Heat
  • Fill the container with soil and plant the seeds inside the soil.
  • Place the container in a warm place with plenty of sunlight, however direct sunlight may be not advised. The windowsill could be an ideal place.
