Kitchen Garden Gala
Celebrate spring gardening with us and create a kitchen garden for your porch or patio – and get all of your questions answered about growing edibles! A kitchen garden can be a small garden area near your kitchen door where it is easy to water, watch grow, and harvest for tasty meals. Or, a kitchen garden can be in a container, easily moved to a sunny spot on your porch or patio. We have seeds and plants perfect for small-space gardening, and traditional sized vegetable plants as well for your larger garden spaces.
Some of our available varieties for containers are:
‘Little Crunch’ Container Sugar Snap Peas (seeds or plants)
‘Container French Mascotte’ Bush Bean
‘Round Romeo’, ‘Bolero Nantes’, and ‘Circus-Circus’ Carrots (seed)
‘Green Curls’ and ‘Baby Leaf’ Container Kale (seeds or plants)
‘Container Bush Slicer’ Cucumber (seeds or plants)
‘Astia’ Container Zucchini – (seeds or plants) perfect for small space gardens, a large container, or raised bed
‘Super Bush’ Tomato – plants that are perfect for containers and small spaces, big flavor in a sturdy, bushy plant
In addition, we have many varieties of beans, tomato, pepper, eggplant, lettuce, arugula, kale, cabbage, kohlrabi, leek, broccoli, cauliflower, lovage, celeriac, rhubarb, asparagus and more!
