Starting a garden or a few containers this year? Help us celebrate Earth Day by claiming one of our free seed starting kits. You can choose six packets of vegetable and flower seeds with expert guidance and a composting instructions too. Seeds and planting directions have been donated by the Litchfield County Master Gardener Extension Center and High Mowing Organic Seeds. Please call or email Beth Van Ness at 860-693-5800 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a kit. She will customize it and let you know when it is ready to pick up.
This year we have beans, peas and snap peas, many types of lettuce both heading and leaf lettuce and mesclun mixes and other greens, cucumbers, broccoli, broccoli rabe, tomatoes, kale, chard, corn, summer and winter squashes, parsnips, radishes, corn salad, cauliflower, black-eyed peas, cabbage, sweet peppers, beets, eggplant, pumpkins and melons. Please inquire if you don’t see something in this list. We may have it.
Flower seeds have disappeared quickly but we are expecting another donation shipment.
We have a small selection of herb seeds and will be getting more in the next delivery.
We will try to accommodate specific requests but we may need to substitute some items or give out a partial packet of seed.
