How do you decide what seeds I get?
By matching each kit to the zipcode where it will be grown, we can pick seeds that are well-adapted to your micro-region and climate. All our sustainably-sourced seed varieties are hardy, quick to harvest, and easy to grow.
When should I plant?
Each kit is intended to be planted in the season for which it was ordered. For best results we recommend planting within 30 days, unless otherwise noted in the instructions. If storing your seeds for longer than 60 days, we recommend refrigerating.
How much sun do my plants need?
We recommend planting in a spot that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. If your yard is mostly shaded, consider planting in pots instead so you can move them into the sun as needed!
How do I prepare my soil?
Our Getting Ready to Grow guide has plenty to tips for prepping your soil!
What is direct sowing?
Direct sowing is the method of growing your plants from seed sown right in the garden. Direct sowing is economical and easy, no special equipment, pots, or transplanting required! Just follow your planting instructions!
What is thinning?
Thinning is removing some of the plants that are growing too close together so your other plants have room to grow! Not all plants require it, so follow your planting instructions for each variety.
Why can't I order?
We currently ship to these states: NC, SC, VA, WV, GA, CT, DE, MD, NY, NJ, PA, and DC, and design kits for plant hardiness zones: 6a, 6b, 7a, 7b, 8a If your zipcode does not match these location requirements then we do not offer garden kits to your region, yet!
