Much like a recipe is only as good as its ingredients, a garden is only as good as its seeds. Choosing seeds can be quite overwhelming. I’m hoping today’s post will make it a simpler process. I’ll cover where to get your seeds, how to choose the type you want and best of all, I’ll cover what are the jargon on the packet means.
When it comes to buying seeds, my first choice is usually to buy seeds from a local company. Why? Local seeds are already acclimated to grow in my local temperatures, humidity, and growing season. Seeds that perform really well in the deserts of Arizona will not do as well in the short and chilly growing season of Vermont.
