It will soon be time to start transplants of our warm season vegetables and flowers. Now is a good time to purchase seeds and seed starting supplies such as growing media, seeding flats, and heating mats. Special trays with clear plastic covers provide a moist seed germinating environment.

When it’s cold outside and you’re curled up next to the fire, pull out some graft paper and start planning your summer garden. Remember to rotate your plants – don’t plant the same vegetable in the same place for two consecutive seasons.

Never gardened before? Check out our Gardening Workshop on May 2nd.
