Our Selection Of Seeds For 2019
Last year we focused on evaluating the plants introduced in 2018 as well as expanding on those who have performed well and are popular to our dear customers. In our conversations during Seedy Saturdays, we have learned that specially for perennials, a seed packet might be too much seed for one family. As most of our seeds are perennials, we are introducing this year, mixed packets, were gardeners cant have more variety for the same price. We also offer the option of a double packet for $5.00 for garden groups that wish to place a group order.
We only offer seeds from the plants that grow healthy and well on our own land, and we are constantly looking for plants that are adapted to our region and offer value to our ecosystems and livelihood.
Wild Plants for Urban Gardens
What about a wild look in the urban garden? An unusual garden that would host bees, insects and butterflies. What about plants that "grow" worms, and then the birds come to pick them up and feed their young? Isn't it crazy to grow plants that would attract and produce worms? The Butter and Eggs, and we have her. And working to find more plants, please let me know if you find wormy plants, I am interested.
And please check our selection of wild plants, would be beautiful in a city landscape. And remember that...
Most wild plants are very prolific and their seeds can last a long time in the soil before they germinate. They produce two kinds of seeds; some that will germinate the following year, and others that will remain dormant in the soil until the conditions are such that the presence of the plant is needed for healing the soil. Keep this in mind as you plant them, germination is slower and less than what we are used to. Also, some seeds are harder to germinate as they need a cool treatment, and therefore it is best to plant them outside in the Fall rather than indoor flats in the Spring.
As a general rule when planting wild plant seeds (specially the tiny ones), just scatter the seeds around and do not cover them, as most seeds need light to germinate.
Sales, swaps, community projects and partnerships
We are always interested in swapping seeds with other seed growers, as well as offering our seeds for gardeners interested in field testing them. We donate seeds for school gardens, community projects and seed libraries. If you are interested, please write to...
