It’s not too early to think spring! Now is a perfect time to plan for warm summer days of fresh produce from a home garden. To help, Ambler Farm offers a wide range of transplants for sale.

Ambler Farm transplants are 100-percent organically grown in their greenhouse from seed in a compost-based, biologically-active potting soil, and are lovingly tended by Ambler’s director of agriculture, Farmer Jonathan Kirschner. Ambler Farm begins selling cold weather transplants at the farm in mid-April and warm weather transplants in mid-May. But to enable home gardeners to have more options, Ambler Farm will offer “Grown to Order” transplants.

“We’re offering several additional varieties of 25 vegetable types. We do this because we would love for you to experiment where we cannot–but we have many varieties that we will grow only if you order them in advance,” explains Ambler Farm’s executive director Robin Clune. “For example, we plan to grow 19 varieties of tomatoes at the Farm this summer, but there will be 60 varieties from which you can choose for your own garden.”

In addition, there are additional varieties of eggplants, flowers, herbs, onions, scallions, salad and cooking greens, peppers, summer squash, and winter squash. Ambler Farm also offers crops such as arugula, beets, radishes and spinach that normally get seeded directly but can be transplanted for an early start.

The last day to order some transplants, including leeks, onions and scallions, is Sunday, March 5. There are many more details on the Ambler Farm website.
