We have everything you’ll need to get a jump start on your vegetable garden, including germination trays, soil mixes, grow lights and plant labels. If you’d rather not start your vegetables from seed we have locally grown vegetable starter plants available as soon as the weather is warm enough to set them out.

We also carry an assortment of grape vines and berry shrubs for smaller landscapes and patio containers! Learn more in our Growing Fruit Trees Guide.
