Garden Dreams Begin with Selecting Your Seeds!

Garden Dreams Begin with Selecting Your Seeds!

The concept is basic and decidedly delightful. We start with seed selection in winter to plan our spring gardens. We check for the best start date, recall what grew well last year, dream of warm soils and vibrant veggies, and finally get the beds prepped. We're here to remind you: it's time to buy your seeds! LocalHarvest has a great selection, from heirloom veggies to herbs and flowers.

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange is an amazing resource for certified organic seeds. Most of their seeds are tried-and-true heirloom and open-pollinated varieties. You'll find gorgeous lettuces, sweet summer squash, heirloom tomatoes, and so much more.

Garden Medicinals and Culinaries is another gem for obtaining ecologically grown and sometimes hard to find medicinal and culinary herb seeds. These are the plants that fill our garden beds with colorful flowers and aromatic leaves, delighting the senses. Garden Medicinals has a wide variety of basils, medicinal flowers, and even hot and sweet peppers.

Happy Planning!
