Bulbs & Seeds


Planting seeds and bulbs provide the perfect opportunity to practice patience and delayed gratification.  Pay attention to the soil and growing conditions, time it right, and you will be rewarded with your own grown-from-scratch plant and seasonal color!

Bulbs

Spring-Planted Bulbs include tender bulbs like dahlias that are planted in spring and flower in summerFall-Planted Bulbs include tulips and daffodils; they’re planted in fall and bloom in spring.  Planting bulbs allow you to design a garden within a garden.  Interplant among perennials or shrubs, ring around a tree, plant single species in large drifts, or tuck a few in your window box for a surprise in the spring.  Bulbs are a low maintenance way to have fun with color and design.

Remember, garlic is a bulb crop, too! We also carry onion sets, shallots and potatoes.

TIP:

Create a ‘bulb lasagna’ in a pot by layering bulbs with varying bloom times for long lasting show of color.

Healthy Fast Food

You’ve probably seen trendy “baby greens” served up in restaurants, but you can enjoy these elegant fast foods at home, too. Baby greens are simply leafy veggies that can be harvested once they are about 3-4″ tall. They are tender, sweet, easy to grow and packed with nutrients!
To harvest, use a scissors or garden snip to cut greens down to about an inch above the ground. Plants will begin to grow once again, and repeated harvests are possible in a few weeks. These veggies are known as cut-n-come-again’s. Remember veggies are heavy feeders, so fertilize after harvesting to promote faster growth and subsequent harvests.
TIP: Pea shoots are a good choice if you don’t have more than a few hours of sunlight indoors
