which seeds will sprout fastest?

hi i need to send seeds to school with my 5 year old for planting. which ones will sprout fast but will also last long. some beans i once planted grew very fast but then died because the stems grew too long and fell over. he will be planting them in a medium sized pot. something that will flower later would make him very happy.

  • Marigold(pumpkin is another fast grower but it may have the same problem as the beans) seeds sprout pretty fast and they are pretty tolerant of getting more water then they need

  • Marigolds, like pp mentioned, are good and you could also try some herb seeds, like parsley or basil or oregano, as they will sprout fairly quickly and not get tall & gangly, but instead spread out to fill the pot up.

  • Taragon flowers and has a pleasant smell plus once it is mature your class can do a cooking project with it. Making chicken or pea salad.
