Grow from Seed–it’s easier than you think!

If you have never tried growing a plant from seed, you are missing out on a real thrill!  It’s true that some can be a little tricky, but most are way easier than you think and your family will enjoy the experience of watching the seedlings emerge.  Our nurseries are both stocked with a wonderful selection of Botanical Interest seeds for herbs, vegetables, and flowers. There are some you can plant right away and others you can buy for plotting your summer garden (a great winter activity for us impatient gardeners).  Some of our favorites for planting now are arugula, beets, carrots, lettuce, radishes, and all sorts of peas. If you start you own eggplant, tomato, or pepper plants inside, now is the time to get those seeds planted too!

One potato, two potato…..

The time has come again to plant your potatoes, one of the easiest vegetables to grow!  If you don’t have space in your garden, you can plant them in a large container or even a clean trash can right on your patio (search online for instructions). The whole family will love harvesting a whole crop of potatoes this spring from each piece of seed potato you plant. Both of our locations have several varieties from which to choose, or you could choose to try them all.
