March Seed Sale

Early spring is a great time for sowing grass seed where the snow has melted. The moisture and freeze-thaw cycles help to break down the hard seed casings improving germination. Seed will lay dormant until later in the spring when soil temperature warms.

Take advantage of savings on quality seed blends for lawns, pastures and natural areas.

Cabin Fever Combat

Is winter lingering too long for you? Get your hands dirty with these fun indoor gardening projects to beat the blues. Involve your kids and make it a family affair. Here are our favorite indoor projects for March:

Hanging glass terrariums.

We have an assortment of hanging terrariums that are just waiting for your creativity!  Use decorative moss, air plants, small shells or rocks, succulents, little toys or figurines to create a mini display. Hang in any bright spot and use a plant mister to water any live plants.

Table top cactus garden.
Try planting an old coffee pot, cookie tin, box or a plain terracotta pot.  Any combination of cacti and succulents will work, but a mix of heights and textures always looks good. Fill your container partially with cactus mix. Gently remove the plants from their containers and arrange in your container.  Carefully back fill with more cactus mix. Cover bare spots with a light layer of gravel, sand or decorative rock. Water gently and place in a warm, bright spot.

Start some seeds.
Longer season veggies such as tomatoes, winter squash, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and peppers are best started indoors anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost date. Generally, mid to late March is a good time to start these crops.

      • Begin with a clean seedling tray or small pots. Ensure there are holes for drainage.
      • Select a sunny, warm spot away from hot or cold drafts.
      • Use high quality seedling mix and dampen the mix before you fill your containers. Do not use garden soil or compost, as these may contain harmful pathogens or fungi.
      • Using a pen or chopstick, make a ¼ inch hole and plant one or two seeds in each hole.
      • Gently top each hole with more seedling mix.
      • A clear plastic top can be used to retain moisture during germination.
      • Ensure the soil stays moist, but not soggy. A plant mister works well for this.
      • Once plants have reached about 2-3 inches and have several sets of true leaves, they can be transplanted into larger containers.

Not all seeds benefit from an early start. The following seeds are best sown directly into the garden at planting time: Beans, peas, carrots, beets, radish and turnips.  Leafy greens such as chard, kale and spinach and zucchini are easily grown from seed outdoors and don’t need to be started indoors.

We have everything you need to start a seed! Come by and see our large selection of garden seeds, seedling mixes, seed starting kits and more!

Grow sprouts on your windowsill.
From seed to fork in less than a week, sprouts may be the fastest food you can grow! They are packed with vitamins and nutrients and make super additions to salads, stir fry, sandwiches or wraps. Our line of sprouting seeds from Botanical Interests™ has full instructions and recipes on every package.

Only sprout seeds labeled for sprouting. These seeds have been independently tested in a lab for harmful pathogens.
