During the early season, here in our Holladay Garden headquarters, we are busy growing nearly all of our plants from seed, before planting them in ALL of our 14+ gardens. The work is all done here in one of our Holladay gardens.
This type of work takes a lot of attention and skill but it's so worth it. Since we have so many gardens which require a lot of planting in a few months, it will save us a ton of money and it's such a valuable skill to learn how to do. PLUS you know the entire history of this plant i.e. when the seed was planted, what it was fed, how it was cared for, where it grew, etc.
If you are interested in learning how to grow plants from seed, you should be helping me with this work.
It starts in February and lasts about 3 - 4 months.
Be sure and book a garden work session in Holladay if you want to help me with this work.
See our Garden Calendar for details
Growing plants from seed takes some skill and time. I like to think of these little seedlings as little babies. They both need constant attention but they are SO worth it when you see them start to grow and flourish!
If your family depends on you growing food, they may starve if you don't plan ahead, practice and perfect this skill.You will make mistakes in the beginning but each spring when it's time to plant, if you are consistent and keep working at it, you will become a pro at growing your own food from seed!
