Are you ready to start growing your own vegetables and flowers? Now’s a great time to plant your garden and it’s a fun activity the whole family can do together. And Ambler Farm has already-germinated plants for easy transition into your garden. You can choose from more than 225 varieties of plants this season.
About Our Transplants
Our transplants are 100% organically grown in our greenhouse from seed in a compost-based potting soil and they are lovingly tended by our director of agriculture, Jonathan Kirschner.
We strive to give you plants that will do well when you are ready to plant them in your garden. We plant seeds in organic matter soil in our warm greenhouse where they germinate. We then transition the plants to our unheated hoop house before finally moving them outside. Transplants grown with our methodology suffer less transplant shock and show better resistance to adverse conditions such as disease and pest pressure. Transplants include those that are suited for a colder Northern climate (when planted).
Sale Dates: May 16, 22, 23, and 30
