Seed Starting

February is the month that we need to start some of our seeds, those veggies and annuals that take  exceptionally long to germinate like peppers, rosemary and Gerber Daisies and perennials such as Echinacea, Black Eyed Susan and Shasta Daisies. Also specialty herbs and flowers that take a bit long to get to the point of harvest like, stevia, onions (from seed) and mache . Crops that do well in cooler temps like kale, lettuces, spinach and more could be started now also.

Starting Seeds

The secret to getting seeds to germinate as quickly as possible is keeping the soil warm. If you start your seeds in a flat or peat pellets, set the flat filled with peat pellets on a warming mat (a heating pad on the lowest setting will suffice) to keep the soil to an optimum germination temperature. No light is needed during germination, not until after the plants have sprouted is light needed. Then try to keep room temperature between 65-70 degrees F and watch your plants grow.

Don’t get impatient. Some seeds take up to 28 days just to peak through the soil. So don’t get in a hurry, remember it’s worth the wait to see what you have grown on your own from the tiny seed!!

5 tips for your houseplant in the winter!

Many house plants this time of year will start to show stress. This can be caused by one or a combination of reasons. These include dry heat, over watering, little light and small use of fertilizer. Some tips to help you with your house plants…
But don’t give up these plants are great for cleaning the air in your home while we’re spending so much time indoors!
1. Keep them away from direct heat vents, so the warm air doesn’t blow directly on the plant
2. Don’t over-water. During the winter months, with low hours of day light you can over water very easily. Don’t just water, always touch the soil a finger length to see if the plant really needs water
3. Keep your plants in a south facing window so the plants can get the maximum amount of light
4. Don’t treat all house plants the same. Check each plant individually to see what it needs
5. Plants still need feed in the winter. You still eat in the winter (we aren’t bears after all!!) so don’t forget to fertilize your plants every three to four weeks. Your Christmas Cacti are the only exception, as they don’t need fertilized until August.


organic fertilizers we recommend and also sell at the store are:

                                  Bonide’s liquid plant food $5.99
Indoor house plant food $6.98
Hope this helps your plants stay happy and healthy though the winter months! Thanks for reading! Please leave your comments and come see us at the store!
