seed trayHere at the microfarm we like to plant the best quality seeds we can get our hands on for almost everything we grow. There are only a couple of items that we don’t plant from seed and instead buy starter plugs from reputable companies (strawberries and onions are two that spring to mind). Right now, at the beginning of September, the nursery is packed full of seed trays with lots of tiny plants emerging. It’s an exciting time of year and I never cease to be amazed as those tiny seeds I planted germinate and emerge from the trays. Nature really is amazing.

Here’s a list of what we are planting right now – and we suggest you should be planting too for your fall garden. We have some great (and easy) solutions to share with you on how to start growing your own food from seeds along with high density urban gardening solutions to take those seedlings through to a successful harvest.

Get out there and start planting – or let us know how we can help you get started with your best growing season yet. If you’d prefer us to start the seeds for you then just let us know what you need and we’d be happy to help you out.

Happy Planting!
