Barb’s Gardening Tips

Hello Gardeners,  

We are starting to notice the first signs of Spring here in Kentucky – it’s in the air, so to speak!  And nothing says Spring like germinating seedlings for your yard and garden.  Gardeners lust after a yard full of fun and exotic flowers and vegetables; and by growing your own seedlings, you can expand your garden’s variety, and fill it with plants that many local greenhouses have never even heard about.  And all for a fraction of the cost!  There are several benefits to starting your own plant material.   Mainly, a  gardener can choose from an endless variety of seeds to germinate; each one offering unique flavors, colors, and growth.  I belong to a horticultural organization and their catalog lists over four thousand cultivars of tomatoes alone! Talk about variety!  Also, most gardeners feel a sense of satisfaction and empowerment when they rely of themselves to produce their own seedlings.  I believe many people are agrarians or “farmers” at heart, and gardening is one of the oldest, most basic human skills.  Plus, seed starting comes at a time of the year when not much is happening outdoors, so it’s fun to have a chance to do something constructive about “Spring Fever” -  a malady most of us gardeners suffer from.  A chance to get our hands in some dirt!   

Happy Gardening, 

Barb
