Join the Sewing Circle
The EJC Sowing Circle is an unofficial group of patrons who prefer to sow their vegetables and flowers from seed. There are lots of benefits to indoor sowing, including providing a fun and rewarding task for an often-dreary winter day.
When you start seeds this early, you’re going to have a longer growing season naturally. This will give your flower or vegetable garden plenty of time to grow throughout the entire growing season. Exposure to a sunny window is ideal but if that’s not an option, we have a variety of Gro Light options that supplement natural light, which is crucial for germination.
We also carry a special soil designed for starting seeds, called Fafard Black Gold Seedling Mix. Check out our complete kits, too, that include biodegradable pots, a growing tray and even a humidity dome. It’s a great time to start a new project and you may find that sowing seeds is a perfect fit for you! Here are some of the options available that should be started this month:
- Sweet William
- Black Eyed Susan
- Victoria Blue Salvia
- Echinacea ‘coneflower’
- Dusty Miller
