Edibles: Grow What You Eat
From P-Patch to home orchard, grow your own food. You can start from seed, vegetable starts, herbs, small berry shrubs or fruit trees and grow healthy produce much of the year.
Track down owner and urban farmer Chuck Flaherty to learn about starting your edible garden and getting the most out of your space. He can advise you on choosing seeds, using vegetable starts, soil prep, fertilizing and other ways to have a productive edilble garden and long harvests of healthy nutrient-rich produce.
Edible Gardening Tools and Tips
Home grown fruits and vegetables provide flavorful, nutrient rich produce that can also be an excellent source of the probiotics* you need for a healthy life. Growing your foods without chemical pesticides can increase the levels of these beneficials incorporated into your garden crops. Organic soils, amendments and fertilizers can all help you achieve a bountiful, healthy harvest.
Add minerals and nutrients to your soil with both amendments and fertilizers. We carry organic options from EB Stone and Gardener & Bloome.
Ladybugs, nematodes, and beneficial microbes can combat both plant pests and diseases.
Release ladybugs to organically combat an aphid infestation.
Start plants inside to get a head start on your spring crops. We carry heat mats, grow lights, seed starting soils and the trays or containers to grow plants in.
