Germination and propagation information

We collect and keep our own seeds for planting next year. Not only does this reduce the cost of growing a garden but it allows for an even greater connection with the food we eat and the ongoing cycle of growth, reproduction and renewal. Through careful selection it is possible to guide the evolution of the plant species, developing new strains or varieties that are better suited to the local climate, soil conditions and other site specific variables.

In order to achieve the best germination results it is important to research the appropriate procedure. Many plants require cold stratification or scarification of seeds. Sometimes it’s as simple as soaking seeds in hot water prior to planting. Other species require months of cold to subzero temperatures.
