Starting Flower Seeds from Botanical Interests

Do you have all your seeds for this year's growing season? There's still time to order!

The process of ordering through seed catalogs can be daunting, but it also provides many advantages, such as being able to choose seeds based on how they are grown and how they are treated. Here at my Bedford, New York farm, we sow thousands of seeds each year. Starting from seed isn’t difficult. They can be planted closely together in seed starting trays, and then pulled apart easily when ready for transplanting outdoors. This season, some of the seeds we're growing are from Botanical Interests, a family owned Colorado seed company that offers more than 500-varieties of vegetable, flower and herb seeds, including many organic and heirloom varieties.

Here are some photos - enjoy…
