The thrill of growing vegetables!
Growing your own food is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding gardening experiences. Children are also far more interested in vegetable growing than growing flowers. Growing ‘veggies’ is a good way to get them interested in something that will last a lifetime.
‘Home grown’ tastes better, is fresher, is healthier, and in this economy, cheaper. No matter how large or small your space may be, you can grow great vegetables.
You’ll only need a few things. First, you need a minimum of 6 hours of full sunlight and rich well prepared and amended soil – we can show you how to do this. You can grow vegetables right in the ground, of course, but you can also create raised bed gardens or use a large pot. What you grow in is a personal choice dependent upon your space, sun and commitment. Be sure to research mature plant size before planting, as a crowded vegetable garden is the fastest way to lose interest and not experience very good yield from your efforts.
There are many different types of vegetables that you can grow. There are cool weather crops such as cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, and more, that can be planted in early to mid-April(maybe not this year). There are tons of warm weather veggies of course and you’re only limited by space. From seed, to bulbs, or bare-root, to potted plants, if you want to plant it, we’ll have it. Don’t forget edible flowers such as pansies, nasturiums, violas and more! They’re great in salads and cakes.
Our ‘organic’ plant care department is also fully stocked with fertilizers, insecticides, soil amendments and more to make sure your harvest is a healthy one.
Wishing you all a bountiful harvest.
