Great variety and outstanding quality of Hart's seeds with wonderful colors and selection for growing areas in condo's, large and small home gardens, rooftop gardens, and organic gardens too...!!!
A six-by-six plot just outside your kitchen door can support an array of fragrant herbs, many of which can flourish and expand from year to year. In addition, herbs do well in individual pots or as part of a flower box arrangement just outside the window.
Decks, patios -- even urban rooftops can be ideal for container gardening. Use not only Terra Cotta pots, but whiskey barrels, ceramic, and wooden containers lined with plastic inserts. Be sure to allow for proper drainage, use a good soiless potting mixture, and water and fertilize regularly. Tomatoes, peppers of all varieties and green beans trained along a tripod are good examples. You can also plant an assortment of lettuces in a window box to pick as you go.
If you like vegetables such as squash and cucumbers which grow on a vine, grow up instead of out. Attach the vines as they progress to a fence or deck railing, minimizing the need for ground space. If neither of these options are available to you, placing two poles in the ground with heavy gauge wire running from pole to pole spaced about a foot apart can do the trick. When the growing season is over, remove the poles and set them aside until the following spring.
And don't forget your 'pumpkin patch' for all you pumpkin carving picasso's out there. Although too large and cumbersome for growing upwards, a six by six plot may be all you'll need to start looking forward to that traditional harvest pastime. Get all your seeds growing early and get yourself a Pumpkin Masters pumpkin carving kit and accessories. That's all you will need for great Autumn fun.
Be the hit at all summertime get togethers, with your own homegrown watermelon.
And, take the gloom out of those dreary afternoons in late winter and early spring, by thinking your upcoming colorful Easter decorations with Peter Cottontail.
So don't be restrained by the size of your own corner of the world. With a little imagination you can enjoy fresh garden produce all summer long, and look forward to harvest time with all of its rewards. Build a birdhouse or feeder and look forward to sharing your garden space with our feathered friends. Find the blue jay... and let him tell you his story. Fifty Birds of Town and City is a fun learning experience for kids of all ages. This interactive portion of our site promotes awareness of some of the creatures with whom we share our planet. There are lots of surprises including a 50 ton Flying dragon and many interesting questions to be answered. Enjoy...! Happy Gardening.
