Are you a seed lover? If you’ve never grown plants from seeds, make it your resolution to give it a try this year. Growing a plant from seed, nurturing it, transplanting it in the garden, tending it, and enjoying its beautiful blooms or delicious fruit makes you feel like a garden rock star!
While it’s probably too early in your area to start seeds in January, it’s definitely time to get seeds now. Millions of new gardeners discovered the pleasure of growing food and flowers during the pandemic, and the demand for seeds increased enormously. Now’s the time to make sure you have the supplies and seeds you want for your 2022 garden. Visit your local Master Nursery® Garden Center for an extensive selection of seeds, Bumper Crop® Soils and Plant Foods, and all your gardening supplies.
Start by making a list of your favorite veggies, fruits, and flowers. If you plan to start seeds inside, you’ll need trays, humidity domes, grow lights, and Bumper Crop® Potting Soil [Eastern & Midwestern Regions | Western Region]. Visit your local Master Nursery® Garden Center for your gardening supplies.
If you love seeds and want to try new varieties this year, consider participating in National Seed Swap Day, celebrated each year on the last Saturday of January; this year, it’s on January 29, 2022. While many local gardening clubs host in-person seed swaps, you can also find seed swaps online, where participants mail seeds to one another. Seed swaps are a fun, inexpensive way to try new varieties in your garden. Or consider organizing a seed swap with a group of friends in your area. Really, most people don’t need 50 tomato seeds or 200 lettuce seeds. Partner with friends to share the bounty and save some money.
