Stop by Hattie’s Garden this Saturday from 9 to 3 as we kick out the growing season!
It’s early and it’s cold, but for those of you who are itching to get going, Hattie’s Garden has a surplus of lettuce mix, dill and cilantro plug plants this weekend.
Yes, you can plant them outside now, or transfer them to in a pot if you prefer.
Plug plants are seedlings which have been germinated and grown in trays. When the roots have grown sufficiently, they can be easily pushed out of the trays, and either transplanted into larger pots, or planted outside in the ground. They are a ready to-plant-unit, having been professionally nurtured by Hattie’s Garden through propagation & early growth stages.
Lettuce Mix Plug Plants
Start growing your own salad mix with our lovely lettuce plants that include green oakleaf, red oakleaf, green romaine, red romaine, lollo rossa, and red leaf lettuces. This ‘Cut-and-Come-Again’ Allstar Gourmet Lettuce Mix from Johnnys Selected Seeds is what we grow for our own lettuce mix. We sell them to you in little 6-packs.
Space them about 6 inches apart in the garden, or a bit closer in a pot. We will have some pots available as well. You’ll be eating your own home-grown salad for Easter.
Dill and Cilantro Plug Plants
Also available Saturday are six-packs of ‘Bouquet’ Dill and ‘Calypso’ Cilantro. We put several seeds in each plant “cell” in the six-pack so that you get a very decent amount of herbs in a short amount of time.
These are also perfect for pot growing, especially at this time of year. A 10-12″ pot will suffice.
You may use your CSA Plants credits to purchase these all these plant plugs, but please note you do not need a membership from Hattie’s Garden to buy them.
You can, of course, still sign up for your CSA Plant credits. The new deadline is March 15, and payment of your CSA by that date secures your credits at a 10% discount.
What’s coming in March
Look forward to Spinach and Arugula six packs in a week or two, as well as our large selection of single lettuce varieties, including romaine selections, butterhead selections and leafy selections.
And don’t forget Daylight Saving Time begins early this Sunday. Change your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, or if still up, change from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m.
Yours, in the spring garden,
