Just a quick to note to let you all know our yams are ready for sale. Limited stock sorry to say. We find these heritage yams to be richer in flavour and sweetness from the ones available in supermarkets. Our favourite for flavour is Henry’s Yellow yam, but our three colours together are a lovely mix of earthy sweetness!  

Spring has well and truly arrived. It feels like everything is moving quickly this season, so do not delay getting crops underway. I am busy pricking out our first seed sowing at the moment. If you have not started yet, fear not, still plenty of time to get seed sowing for tones of things! See below for our recommendations on what to sow now.

The best all round day for seed sowing in September, is the 22nd. Moon opposition Saturn is the best constellation configuration for strong form and structure for your plants. We have been using it for years now as our main seed sowing day each month. We have the times listed on our website for the whole year, so you can find out the best day each month to sow seeds. As with any celestial moment, the exact time is too intense energetically, so we sow seeds in the energies leading up to the moment.

Things to Sow in the Garden Now:

September is a great time to sow tomatoespeppers and eggplant. These crops require a long growing season, and heat to germinate, we use a heat pad to keep the soil temperature stable at around 18-20⁰C. This can also be done near the woodstove or in your hot water cupboard.  Remember to bring your seeds out into the light as soon as they germinate.

Don't forget about all the leafy greens and Brassicas as these can all be sown now too, try our Silverbeet Fordhook Giant, Chard Rainbow, Broccoli De Cicco & Broccoli Purple Sprouting, Broccoli Raab Spring Rapini, Arugula Wild, Cress Land, Rocket, Mizuna, Red Coral Mizuna, Tat Soi and Lettuces Tree, Speckled, Odell’s, Mignonette, St Vincent and Lollo Rossa. 
Companion flowers are a must in my opnion! You can get underway now or in the next few months Aquilegia Grandmother’s Garden, Dahlias Showpiece Surprise, Evening Primrose, Dianthus Clove Pink, Statice Sea Lavender, Calendula Orange, Echinacea, Lupin Blue, Sweet Williams and Poppies. So many options, some perennial and some annual so make sure you choose the ones that suit your garden best.

We often follow the biodynamic calendar and their recommendation to sow seeds at Moon Opposition Saturn, for these dates, check our website.

Our Website is where to find the most up to date information on what we have available at all times during the year. We encourage orders through this medium, but of course get in touch if you cannot access our seeds this way. We have a list of our seeds and their descriptions we can email to you if need be, so please get in touch if the website does not work for you.

And a reminder that selections of our seeds are also available from our Retail Outlets around the country. 

Happy gardening,

Roddy, Setha, Kiersten-Anna and River Rose
