"Growing a Green Planet" Giveaway
Because in Michigan we don't get much of a summer, I usually start my seeds early in the year so they are ready to be transferred outside early spring. This next review couldn't have come at a better time than now for my pre-planting month! Had you asked me a couple years ago what kind of seeds I used or where I got my plants I would have said the dollar store or honestly had no clue there was a different between the types of seeds people used.
Now I laugh at myself from back then because I now know you can waste even a dollar buying a garbage seed plus waste all your time and efforts planting a poor quality seed. Searching online I recently discovered Seeds Now. More than just an online place to purchase seed varieties, Seeds Now is a resource for seed starting and saving, growing organically, and finding a way to be more self sufficient. You can find seeds, gifts, starting and saving tools.
Seeds Now seeds are "Pure NON-Genetically Modified seeds, 100% NON-Hybridized seeds, 100% Heirloom/Open-Pollinated seeds, and 100% Raw and Un-treated seeds". I'm no pro of course but I do make quite an awesome garden each year so feeling like somewhat of an expert home gardener, I want to know every factor that was contributed to the end result - the fruit or vegetables I feed my family. I was sent over quite a variety for review including their Garden in a Bag, Luffa Gourd Seeds, and the All-in-One Lettuce and Greens Variety Pack.
You can see from my pictures how well some of the seeds have begun sprouting. I was personally surprised that the Luffa Gourd Seeds sprouted as I figured those might have been a difficult plant to grow. I am looking forward to discovering how these will turn out and if I will be skilled at growing my own Luffa's. The Mint Garden in a Bag is the only thing which has not been successful just yet which is a bummer since I tend to use a lot of mint. Hopefully it gets going soon!
Not only can you find all sorts of seeds for your specific needs but you can also find recipes, growing zone tips and how to's for great growing! Their blog has now become one of my must visits most days as well as the weekly giveaways that they have for different seeds!
Cost/Available to purchase: SeedsNow
Recommendation: Not only did each packet come full of seeds, you could actually tell a quality difference between these and say the dried out blackened crap seeds you'd find at a dollar store. The costs are very low so I would totally recommend giving these a try if you are a home gardener!
Giveaway: SeedsNow is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's very lucky readers a Garden in a Bag, Luffa Gourd Seeds, and the All-in-One Lettuce and Greens Variety Pack to have of their own!*Please come back 4/7 to enter when the "Growing a Green Planet" Giveaway event begins!
