Urban Organic Gardener is a monthly subscription service that sends a collection of curated heritage garden seeds to your home at precisely the right time for growing them in your garden! When you sign up, you answer a few questions including how much experience you have with gardening; where your garden will be located; whether you plan to use containers, raised beds, land or hydroponics; and how much sunlight your plants will receive. Then the folks at Urban Organic Gardener consider where you live and put together a curated selection of organic seeds and send them to you.
Each month, your seeds will arrive along descriptions and information you’ll want to know when cultivating your plants from seeds.
Also included in each shipment are garden markers and soil pellets.
After your seeds have sprouted and it’s time for replanting, Urban Organic Gardener recommends dissolving these epsom salts in water and using the solution to water the roots, but not the leaves of your plant.
I can’t wait to try this out!
For what it’s worth, this is what I told Urban Organic Gardener: I’m a beginner who plans to garden in my backyard in containers in full sun.
Small Sugar Pumpkins sound great! They say they’re ideal for making pies. Yum! I can’t wait! I only wish I didn’t have to wait 110 days for maturity!
The CSA I used to belong to produced Lemon Cucumbers each summer, and they were delicious! They were perfect in light summer salads. I’m excited to try my hand at growing my own.
My whole family loves squash, so I’m excited to try these! My kids think roasted squash is one of life’s pleasures.
I don’t know if I’ve ever had provider beans before, but they sound great! Described as long, stringless green beans, these will be a perfect addition to a well-balanced dinner for my family. These beans are said to germinate well while being able to survive adverse weather conditions. Sounds perfect for a Texas summer!
I love okra, and it’s expensive! I can’t wait to grow my own! Urban Organic Gardener says this variety thrives in hot temperatures–again, perfect for our Texas heat!
Using the plastic pots that I had lying around, I was able to plant two or three of each type of seed. I plan to run back to my local organic gardening center to pick up more pots this weekend, so that I can plant the rest of the seeds! Since I’ve been having a lot of luck with the Happy Frog potting soil they have on hand at my organic gardening store, I just went ahead and used it for these seeds, instead of the enclosed pellets. I’ll save those for another occasion.
I can’t wait to see what I’m able to produce with these seeds! My son and I have been having a lot of fun this spring and summer planting from seeds with some of the kids boxes we’ve received. We’ve had some success with various beans, wheatgrass, radishes and lettuce. But I think of those as his successes, and now I’m ready for some of my own! I’m thrilled to be receiving this subscription, and I can’t wait to see what they send me next month!
