Organic Plant Sets

 Certified organic plants for your garden, grown by your farmers.

This spring we are offering organic plants for folks with garden space who want to grow veggies at home. Plant sets come in three sizes: container, raised bed and backyard. For more flexibility, choose the smallest size and add extra plants to your liking. For ultimate flexibility, build your own set from our additional plants. We've included our favourite varieties in these sets so you can grow tried and true vegetables at home. Each order also includes an organic growing workshop on our farm on May 19th to give your garden a great start. Plants must be picked up on our farm on the evenings of May 16th, 17th and 18th and during the day on May 19th. When you've read below and decided on which size suits you best, visit our shop to purchase your plant set and additional plants! If you need more help or have any questions, please read our FAQs at the bottom of the page or drop us a line - we'd love to help you determine if our plants are right for you!

FAQs

Which plant set should I choose?

  • Our container set will fit easily into eight 15-litre containers. If you are planting into beds, this size fits comfortably into 17 sq ft. 
  • Our raised bed set will fit comfortably into 28 sq. ft. 
  • Our backyard set is ideal for yards that have around 60 sq ft of space. 

The above measurement requirements are not hard and fast. Some gardeners fit more plants into a smaller space and others give their plants more room. A big part of gardening is about seeing what works for you and your space; even as farmers with more land than we work, we are continually trying to raise more plants on less space and use our land more efficiently. 

How do I know if my space is right for vegetables?

You need at least 8 hours of sunlight a day to grow vegetables well. If your space doesn't get enough sunlight or is shady, a local garden centre will help you determine what you can grow. If you need garden centre recommendations, give us a shout. 

I've never grown vegetables before - what else will I need to get started?

If you have soil (ie. if you are planting into the ground or raised beds and containers that are already filled), you will need supplemental nutrients. We are working to have those available to you, and we can also recommend places to visit to source organic options. If you aren't sure where to source soil, give us a shout!

Are sets customizable?

Sets are customizable by adding additional plants. We have a great assortment of add-on plants so you can grow more of your favourites. The best way to customize is to order the smallest set size and add extra plants, then you get the discount and a great starter package as well as the extra plants you want. If you need an entirely customized set, see below.

How does the "build your own set" work?

We encourage you to purchase a set - we've chosen them carefully and priced them at a discount. However, you are welcome to build your own set from our additional plants - minimum order must be $35 and there is a fee of $5. If you have any questions, please email us. 

Is there a deadline to order?

The deadline is March 1st or when we sell out.
