How Many Seeds Should I Start in Each Pot?

I'm planting flowers from seed indoors to transplant outdoors after the last frost. If my pot is 4 inches in diameter, how many seeds should I plant in each pot?


It's often good insurance to plant 2 or 3 seeds in each pot, because you won't get guaranteed germination. I usually start many seeds in one small pot, then transplant them to a larger container such as a 4-inch pot when they have a couple true leaves.
