Seedling Sale Inventory 2018

Locally grown in our Ashland, MA greenhouse, we use the highest quality potting soil, and regionally adapted seeds to produce vigorous plants that are ready to take-off in your garden!

You want plants that have been growing with vigor since they moment they germinated. Too many of the big box stores are selling seedling that are old, stagnating and fed chemical fertilizers to keep them healthy until someone buys them.  Buying plants from a local farm is a great way to get your garden off to a good start.  (Don’t forget to add comport and organic fertilizer to your soil.  Plants do best in healthy, living soil!)

The products we use to grow our seedlings:

• Vermont Compost Organic Fort Vee Potting Soil
• Organic Worm Castings by Worm Power
• Neptune’s Harvest Organic Fish and Seaweed Fertilizer
• Seeds from: High Mowing Organic Seeds, Fedco Seeds, Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Geoseed, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and Territorial Seeds.
• Organic Herb Starts from Hillcrest Nursery in Maryland.
• Vermiculite

Brittany, owner and greenhouse manager, has a decade of seedling production experience for small, organic farms and home gardeners.

Stay away from the box store plants and shop locally this season!
