Container Seed Varieties


Benefits of Container Seed Varieties

Container seed varieties are useful for space saving in large gardens, square foot gardening or planting in containers. Because the plants are smaller they allow more diversity to be planted in smaller location which is great for improving pollinator activity and for growing a wide variety of produce in limited space. As with traditional varieties, plants will need an environment that provides the right amount of light, water, and nutrients, as well as adequate space for healthy root development.
