Starting Seed Indoors

Starting Seeds Indoors

Are you trying to get a jump on the growing season? Are there specific varieties of veggies or flowers you like? If you’re saying ‘yes’, then starting seeds at home is for you. There is a great deal of pleasure seeing seeds sprout and even more to witness those tiny seeds bear a flower or fruit. Seed starting is a fun indoor activity for kids and adults alike.
March is a good time to start long- season vegetables and flowers indoors. Tomatoes, onions, winter squash, peppers, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages) and many flowers can be started this month. The goal of starting your own seed is to have your seedlings ready to plant by the time it’s warm enough outside. The exact timing of indoor seeding will depend on what you are growing and if you are able to transplant seedlings into a protected space like a greenhouse or cold frame. Check the seed packet for sowing information and days to maturity. This will help you determine when to plant.
If you are not the seed-starting type, a variety of seedlings will be available in our greenhouse beginning in April.

Bird of the Month: Cedar Waxwing

Cedar Waxwings are easily identified by their sleek grey-brown plumage, crested head, pale yellow belly and black eye mask. A yellow tipped tail and red wax-like wing tips are further bulls-eye clues to their identity. They travel in small flocks and are year round residents of our region. Brushy areas, forests and orchards are their preferred habitat. Cedar Waxwings are common year round on the grounds of MD Nursery where they have plenty of food and cover. Fruit is their primary diet and a flock can quickly devour the fruit of an entire tree to the woe or delight of its owner. In winter, they continue to dine on the fruit that is frozen and dried on trees and shrubs. Cedar Waxwings are not readily attracted to bird feeders but you can entice these beautiful birds (and many others!) by planting their favorite trees and shrubs on your property. Viburnum, Mountain Ash, Crabapples, Honeysuckle bushes and cherries are all good choices to attract Cedar Waxwings. When feeding, they will flock to their food source and then return to other trees for cover and to rest. A variety of fruiting and non-fruiting trees and shrubs will provide valuable year-round habitat for these delightful birds.
