Seed Starting Garden Kits
What a better way to anticipate spring than by starting seeds? If you've never done it before or don't like making choices we have a great kit that is ready to go with a selection of Brenda's heirloom and organic favourites! You can see the full details at and you will find it in the 'plants' section under 'other'  on our order form but here is a sneak peek:
The Seed Starting Garden Kit will contain:
  • 1 non-perforated tray and greenhouse dome
  • 22 -3" round peat pots
  • organic potting soil
  • planting instructions
  • Seeds for the following varieties:
    • 2  "Happy Rich" sprouting Broccoli
    • 1  "Caraflex" Cabbage
    • 1  "Stonehead" Cabbage
    • 1  "Storage #4" Cabbage
    • 2  "Vates" Kale
    • 1  "Jalafuego" Pepper
    • 1  "Ace" Pepper
    • 1  "Bright Star" Pepper
    • 1  "Golden Star" Pepper
    • 2  "Raven" Zucchini

Our longest ordering period of the year is about to end (you have a couple days yet) but if your fridge is looking as bare as mine and you are emptying the freezer also, four weeks between pickups is a bit of a stretch. I'm making sure I have my favourites ordered.
