mail order vegi plants (organic)

Post  happy232 on 5/23/2012, 11:41 am

Is there any place I can get mail order vegi plants? My store is only carrying for another week and I don't have time to make my garden now.

Can you get them now, and pot them up into Solo cups with holes in the bottoms, or something like that?

A lot of online nurseries quit shipping plants now until it's time to ship fall plants. You might be able to find some but from what I've seen it's pretty slim pickens. I'd go with Michelle!

plant them in cups and keep them outside or inside? i'll be out of town and i won't be able to babysit!! =)

on the other hand do i really need to buy plants? if i buy seeds will they hopefully turn into plants?

The seeds should turn into plants, how long will you be out of town? You could plant some seeds and water them and leave them for a few days. Or you could find a babysitter? You might want to buy pepper and tomato starts, and you can still direct sow a lot of seeds like squash, cukes, corn, lettuce. I'm not sure what your weather is like though?

I would put plants in a protected space outside with six hours of sunlight, and set up a wicking system to water your plants...put wicks in your pot or cup, run it to a big bottle of water, and things should be fine. Old shoelaces with the plastic tips cut off work great for this!

Here's a planting schedule for Maryland. It will help you determine when to plant each type of veggie; it should work fine from seed for most things...so long as they say you can plant indoors:

http://www.hgic.umd.edu/content/documents/HG16PlantingDatesforVegetableCropsinMaryland.pdf

Per the chart, you have lots of things you can plant right into June, so you're sitting pretty!

FYI: I got my garden started rather late for my region, and things are still going really well...just your average pest and disease setbacks that I manage organically. Several of the things we planted the charts said it was 2-8 weeks "too late" but we planted seeds anyway and we're starting to see small harvests now. So, take the chart with a grain of salt, and remember that Mel's Mix makes things grow better, so long as you follow his recipe to the letter.

Just remember that the Cooperative Extension Agency is accustomed to dealing with crop farmers who are doing row-gardening, usually with no trellises, so take Mel's ANSFG book and compare spacing on things you're growing...and check here if the ANSFG doesn't have the crop you're wanting to grow. Chances are someone has grown what you're wanting to. What a Face
