SEEDS and Seedlings

2022 Update

As noted below, I am offering seed packets again this year. If interested, please feel free to email me at containercathy at for information on what will be available. You may also text me at 860-977-9473. I’m also planning to sow seeds for tomatoes starts and herbs. More information will be provided in early February. Thank you, Cathy Testa of Container Crazy CT in Broad Brook, CT.

2021 Post below:

Early in the year, around February and March, I offer seed packets and seed sowing kits for sale. The seeds are primarily warm season vegetables such as tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, hot pepper plants and some herbs such as parsley, chives, basil, thyme, etc. I usually pick an annual flower each season to add to my seed list. All of the seeds are sourced by a reputable 100% organic seed producer and are well packaged in each packet with thorough growing instructions. Many heirlooms too for the tomatoes!


For more details of these items, please visit me on my site called There is information about the kits, the seeds, and more. Each purchase comes with planning charts and calendars which I created specific to the seed you select. You also received step-by-step documentation as well get invited to my private Facebook page with how-to video’s and live Facebooks so you may follow along when you are ready to sow your seeds. Many types of seeds are started in March through April timeframes, so it is a good time to get your seed packet(s) or seed sowing kits before the end of February or at the start of early March.

Additionally, if you prefer to pick up either at my home based location in Broad Brook, CT, I arrange Zero-Contact Porch pickups based on your preferred pickup time in advance.


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, seed sowing kits, 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

And lastly, I blog a lot of this site about the seeds I’ve sown and grown so it shows you more information here as well as offers some inspiration. Who loves yummy fresh veggies at home?! I do! You will too. I promise!

Thank you,
