~ We love sharing what we love with people we love ~
We share our perennial flower, herb & native seeds as well as hundreds of other regionally adapted vegetables, flowers & herbs for short seasons. When people ask us if we have kids, we say, ‘Yes! And great-great-great grandchildren! That grow us more than we grow them!’ We’re honored to share them with you!
Optimum germination temperature for many perennials is 77 F, so heat mats make all the difference!
Unless you have a greenhouse, your perennial seedlings will be stressed for light, alas. We enjoy our LED lights, made in the USA by our friend Vic in Indiana, to grow microgreens all winter as well as seedlings in early spring!
We share three seed starting collections! Fruition’s Seed Starting Intro Kit does not include a grow light & is perfect for growing seedlings up to 4 weeks old, from broccoli to basil to zinnias! Seed Starting Deluxe Kit includes a Light & Heat mat, while the Ultimate Kit includes Light, Heat mat, and Mini & Large Soil Blockers!
Nutrient-dense, compost-based potting mix is important for all seedlings & especially those started earliest, like perennials, tomatoes & onions. We share our go-to potting mix ready to go for you (!) as well as our DIY potting mix minerals so you can make 80 quarts of your own potting mix economically.
Well-fed perennials are so much more abundant! We foliar feed our flowers & herbs all season with our organic Fish & Kelp Emulsion. Also, when we transplant each seedling, we tuck a handful of our organic compost in the hole as well as a dusting of our organic slow-release fertilizer for them to enjoy all season. We also share organic chicken compost crumbles if you’re looking for even more vegetative fertility to gift your garden!
Our weekly organic gardening emails share seasonal inspiration as well as insight; share your birth month & day to receive a four-part harmony birthday greeting from our gardens!
