It all starts with a seed! One seed can lead to a long summer of delicious vegetables or to many years of beautiful blooms and lush foliage. Whether you’re growing crops, ornamentals, or annuals, starting from seed is a small and easy task that can yield big results.Depending on what plants you are growing, there are different methods that work best. Some seed should be started early indoors, while others prefer to be sown directly into the garden. It is always best to follow the instructions and recommendations on your seed packet. Here at Yew Dell, we’ve already started hundreds of seeds that will later be planted in the gardens or placed in our plant market to purchase.
