Care and Feeding

Sustainable…that’s the way we raise our babies at Garden Delights. From the seed we use to the organic growing media to the way we package our plants, we make every effort to minimize our impact on the environment. We buy non-genetically modified seed, searching for heirloom varieties that are not only delicious and interesting but also in need of saving. As members of Seed Savers Exchange, we grow varieties that you won’t find at your big box stores. In fact, many of the plants we grow are listed on Slow Food’s Ark of Taste. Our goal is to provide you with lovely delights from your garden while ensuring biodiversity.

Your plants are hand-tended, from propagation through transplant to hardening off. I personally grow each plant that we offer through Garden Delights. Your plants will arrive ready for transplanting in your garden or container. We use biodegradable, OMRI certified organic pots , which are not only environmentally friendly but also plant friendly. Transplant the entire pot, tearing off the top lip to the soil line, to minimize transplant shock. Your pot will biodegrade while the plant’s roots grow through the pot. No root bound plants, no plastic pots to fill the landfill!

With your order, you’ll receive planting instructions and growing tips. If you have any questions or need assistance with your plants, please don’t hesitate to send me an email.
