Seed Starting

The groundhog saw his shadow and that means six more weeks of winter.  But if you're like us, that's way too long to wait for spring!  Right now is a great time to get a jump start on the growing season by starting your seeds indoors.  And we can help!

Planters Pride
Coco Peat Pots

 

Peat pots are an easy and environmentally healthy way to start your seeds.  While the seeds are growing, the peat improves air circulation around roots and helps prevent root damage and transplant shock.  And they're made of natural coconut coir, so they're completely biodegradable.  In the spring, they can be directly planted into your garden!  How easy is that?
