We grow all of our own vegetable plants from seed to finished plant ready to put in your garden. If a variety is sold out later in the season feel free to have one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff help you find a new variety to try that will give you the results you are looking for.


The optimum time to plant tomatoes in our area is Mother’s Day. Air temperatures and soil temperatures are usually high enough by then for easy care and fast growth.

Some gardeners choose to do an early planting (April 15th or after) Soil temperature is warm enough in our area then, but you will need to have protection planned for your plants for when the air temperature goes below 32 degrees.
