With planting season creeping up, we wanted to talk a little about some of the ways to plant into your garden. As you are preparing your beds and planning what to plant, you should also consider how you are going to plant.
Plant from seed? Pop in starts? You've got options!
You're all amped up to plant a Spring garden. You're wondering which to plant into your beds, seeds or starts. Here's a checklist of the pros and cons of each method below to help you decide which planting path you should take.
It's good to note that some vegetable plants, such as beets, carrots radishes, turnips, spinach, and even lettuce, aren't typically thrilled to be transplanted. So we suggest planting them directly into the garden bed by seed. As for the rest of them — the choice is yours.
Seeds — challenge, excitement, and reward! It's like the first time you cooked your own dinner- from scratch.
Starts ( transplants or baby plants)
Of course, all plants begin with seeds, but not all gardens have to!
Now, whether you are going to be direct seeding, transplanting starts or a combination of the two you have a bit of info to get you started.
And remember, Sprouting Farms will have garden vegetable starts available throughout the growing season!
We will also have classes coming up in the following months to help you start your spring and summer gardens. Check them out here.
