In March, I start the process of growing my own tomato and pepper plants from seed and offer the seedling starter plants for sale around mid-May to local interested people. This process has started very organically for me and has grown. I like to grow unique types and heirlooms. So in addition to seed packets, there are seedling starter plants available from mid-May to Memorial Day. I teach purchasers all I know as they grow the plants at home in their gardens and container gardens. Why don’t you join us?! Let me know early in the year if interested in reserving your plants.


Not into planting your own but would love some pots of tomato plants on your deck or balcony? I also offer this service where I will plant the seedling in a large pot to grow at your home at the right time in Connecticut. Be sure to contact me early to express your interest! All of this starts from early March to May each year. I also assemble and delivery herb planters. For more information, see also

Thank you,
