Where to Find Local/Heirloom Seedlings
We at Heirloom Gardens have loved growing seedlings for sale over the last six years. We are so grateful that so many of you in the community purchased from us year after year, and we’ve loved hearing stories about (and seeing pictures of) your thriving gardens.
Unfortunately, we will not be offering seedlings for the 2015 season. We tried to secure greenhouse space for the spring, but we were not successful. Providing around 200 varieties of seedlings at 2 different farmers markets means that we need about 700 square feet of greenhouse space. Last year we were thrilled to partner with GrowHaus and rent their space, but this year they decided to dedicate that area to local residents who are growing seedlings for their garden (which is totally in line with GrowHaus’ mission, and we support their decision). We tried and tried and talked to a lot of people, but we weren’t able to find an alternate space that was affordable enough for our ultra-small-business budget.
This page will host an evolving list of local sources for seedlings (particularly heirloom seedlings). If you know of a local grower, please send me their information at info@eatwhereUlive.com and I’ll add them to the list!
