Start at the Beginning

seed starting and direct sowing

Gardening brings two awesome ways to grow your green pals: seed starting and direct sow. There’s something truly magical about starting with a seed and watching it go from a seedling to a full-grown plant in all its glory. You’ll be such a proud plant-parent! There’s nothing simpler than scattering seeds exactly where you want the plant to grow. While not all plants can be direct-sown, some make it easy that way, and they’re great for beginner gardeners as there’s no seed-starting equipment required.

Sun or Shade?

Sun or Shade?

It’s all about finding the perfect match for your plot, so take note of the conditions. Do you get at least six hours of direct sunlight every day? Go for full sun plants. There are so many colors, textures and fragrances to choose from! With about four to six hours of sunlight per day, you’ll want to try effortless shade-tolerant plants that’ll bring beauty to lower-light areas.

To ensure thriving gardens, start with coir as a sustainable substrate for seeds, offering disease resistance and optimal water retention. Transition seedlings to robust plants with our potting mix, providing a continuous three-month nutrient supply and efficient moisture retention. Enhance ground cultivation by adding nutrient-rich compost before each season. Nourish your plants with organic fertilizer blends for healthy roots, vigorous foliage, and abundant blooms.
