Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Before digging out all the half-used seed packets saved from last year, keep the following in mind.

    Seed is a perishable product and loses viability over time. The seed that spouted so well last year and filled your garden with colorful blooms and a bountiful harvest, may not perform so well this year.

    The germination rate will be lower, requiring time and money to add fresh seed to fill in gaps in rows. In addition, the vitality of the seedlings may not be as vigorous as those that germinate from fresh seed.

    Your time is valuable and your garden an investment. That is why we suggest using fresh seed each year.
