Seed Starting Supplies are Here!
An outstanding selection of Burpee Seeds has just arrived in time to chase away the winter doldrums
Don't let the frigid temperatures get you down. While it's not the same as being outside working in the soil, starting flower seeds indoors while snow covers the ground outside can pass the time until spring.
Now is a great time to start perennials like Delphinium, Lavender and Coneflower, as well as biennials like Hollyhock, Sweet William and Canterbury Bells. By starting your own perennial seeds you can coax beautiful blooms this season (instead of waiting the typical two growing seasons) while sharing the satisfaction and anticipation with the entire family. Plus, don't forget about starting vegetable seeds too!
A few tools that we find handy to help ensure success include:
Start your seeds quickly and easily with Jiffy greenhouses. The watertight base and dome are both made from recyclable plastic and the greenhouses are available in a wide range of sizes to fit your seed starting needs.
Florescent Grow Lights
A compact lighting fixture that can provide the perfect amount of light for young seedlings, these grow tubes are perfect to combat our dim Maine windows that offer little light this time of year. In addition, the fluorescent fixture provides some additional heat just in case those windows are a little chilly too!
Cow Pots are an all-natural way to get seeds and cuttings started. Made from recycled cow manure, they provide a nutrient rich and biodegradable vessel that can be planted directly into the garden once your seeds mature.
In addition to these fine products, Estabrook's also offers Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix, a professional blend that is right for all seedlings.
