Go buy some plants.
Seriously. You can buy like 10 plants or 10 seed packets for the price of one bouquet.
Don't stress out. Don't read all the gardening blogs---unless you need something to really geek out on.
Watch a YouTube video or two OR chat up someone who works in the garden section of your gardening center.
Buy the plants, a bag of soil, and maybe a pot and some gloves.
Just stick the plants in the dirt, water, and make sure they get the right amount of sun.
They will grow or just get eaten by killer rolly-pollies. It doesn't matter. Do it anyway.
PS If you live in the snow instead of sunny Southern California, maybe wait a few weeks to defrost first.
