2018 Seed Picks


It's time again for our annual "Seed Picks" post, where we choose a few of our favorite varieties for the 2018 outdoor gardening season.  Click through the slideshow below to see them:

Products We Love: Canna’s Terra Professional Plus Soil


Products We Love: Canna’s Terra Professional Plus soil. It’s seed-starting time for outdoor gardeners and Canna’s Terra Professional Plus is our favorite soil to start seeds in. It’s a blend of peat moss, coco coir and composted tree bark, with a slight nutrient charge that’s mild enough for seedlings but strong enough for more established plants too (no fertilizing necessary for 2-3 weeks). The tree bark gives the soil natural aeration without the addition of perlite (so no white spots in your garden). Available in 1.77 cubic foot bags.

2017 Seed Picks

We received our first 2017 seed delivery last week (as always, from High Mowing Organic Seeds and, as always, 100% organic and non-GMO), so of course we had to make our annual blog post outlining our picks for this season.  Check out the slideshow below for some of our favorites:

We also have a whole bunch of seeds from last year that were just marked down to 50% off.  

If that's not enough planting inspiration, click here for High Mowing's staff picks.  

The almanac says the last frost is going to be early this year (April 1st-18th for the NY Metro area) so you want to get your fruiting plant (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, etc.) and flower seeds started pretty much NOW.  Stop in for seeds and supplies!
