If you have never grown tomatoes buying a plant is the way to start.

Seeds are cheaper and many varieties are only offered as seed. Seeds need to be started 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, they need either a sunny window or must be grown under lights. You need to use seed starting soil and a shallow container or a seed starting tray. Many people find starting seeds very satisfying.

The season is too short to direct sow with seeds, and have them fail. If you have room and time you can start your own from seeds inside, then transplant outside which is fun and cheaper over the long run.
