Plants, Plants, Plants
This is the time of year for starting your home gardens. Stop by the Garden on Wednesday and Thursday from 10 to 4.
Take a look at our plants on Hattie’s Garden website for a complete list. Most of those plants are now ready, including tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, squash, cucumbers, lettuce, arugula, lots and lots of herbs, zinnias, cosmos, marigolds and more.
We have beautiful herb planters this year featuring lemon thyme, tri-color sage, parsley, chives and oregano. These herb planters are 12″ long ovals and can be brought into the kitchen for use while cooking. Though it may seem like a lot of herbs in one planter, the herbs simply adapt to the size of the container they are in. There are enough nutrients in the planter to last for the season. When fall arrives, you can plant the herbs outside, or overwinter and re-pot them next spring.
Remember we use only the best organic soil available to grow our plants. We get our soil from Vermont Compost Company and have found no better biologically active, compost-based soil anywhere. Your plants will thrive because they have already developed a sophisticated root system, only possible through the exchanges facilitated by the growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi enabled by this carefully crafted compost based soil.
Please note that while we will bring as many plants as possible to the HLFM, our space is limited. The best selection will always be at the garden during our open hours.
