If so, how do you keep them? In what conditions do you keep them?

I've bought some dandelion seeds:

Do I keep them outside or inside?
Should I shine a light on them?
How often should I water them?
Would they grow on the windowledge?
What sort of dish or pot should I put them in?

hi, i have started growing weeds too, planted them about 2 months ago a whole mixture and must admit they are a bit slow to grow this time of year, hvaent tried using lights on them.
i have them in long plant potters designed for windowsils (can get form most diy shops or garden centres etc). i have some inside on the windowsills which seem to initially grow fatser but then slow down and i also have some in the planters outside which in initially take longer to grow but then they grow faster once started!! hope this helps :)

Hello, i have some growing in my tortoise room it is quite warm in there.
I planted the winter mix, clover and vetch in tubs of top soil and watered very other day.
The vetch was 3-4 inches tall in 4 days and my clover nearly ready in 5 days.
Remember these are weeds and must not be pampered, but the do not do well if they dont get alot of sun light.

We have pots on the window sills and outside. We only water those inside depending how the plants look like.

Weeds are normally quite hardy that's why they're called "weeds". :rotfl:

Only during winter the weeds in the pots outside grow very slow or not at all.

We also buy herbs in pots from the supermarket's veg department.

All is a great mess as we have other herbivore animals, too, and feed also food insects.

Im growing some weeds at the moment.

I first if all put the seeds in a seed tray with some top soil I got from B&Q.

when they started to shoot, I put them in a windowsill box.

They havent grow yet though, must be the time of year.
