If you're anything like us, when the weather begins to get warmer, you start getting the urge to head outside. If you've got outdoor space, you might even start planning your summer outdoor garden.
Here are 7 reasons why you should grow your own seedlings this year + how your Rise Garden can help you jumpstart your summer garden.
Start heartier spring veggies now
Kale, swiss chard, root vegetables and other cool weather crops are ready to plant now. Start your seeds in your garden immediately and plant them outside in as little as 3-4 weeks. For outdoor garden planting timing, check out the Farmer's Almanac.
Grow your own fruiting plant seedlings
Instead of heading to your local hardware store or greenhouse for your tomato + pepper varieties, you can grow the varieties you want from the seeds you love.
Save money on non-GMO, pesticide-free plants
Instead of paying $5-$10 per organic plant at a local store, you can grow your own outdoor plants from seed. Your plants will be free from pesticides + you'll know their variety + history.
Grow special varieties not available locally
You may want to grow special varieties of herbs or vegetables not available at your local store. By growing your own seedlings, you expand your options to grow your food.
Know the environment your seedlings grow in
Not only do you know what's in and on your plants by growing your own seedlings, you also know what's in your air and water. You have 360 degree control of your plants' environment.
Ensure strong + healthy plants
The environment your seeds are germinated in impacts the yield. Germinate seeds in your Rise Nursery for the best environment for high-yielding plants.
Start harvesting earlier
By starting your seeds indoors now + growing them in your garden for a few weeks, you'll be harvesting your veggies sooner. Plants grow 50% quicker hydroponically so harvest day is just around the corner.
