While starting seeds indoors is a great way to get a head start on your garden, another options is to tuck them directly into the soil outdoors. Here are a few tips for planting seeds outside in your Niagara garden this year.
At the Country Basket Garden Centre we have seeds for just about everything under the sun – vegetables, herbs, wild flowers, annuals and perennials.
Grow... and be happy!

What could be more rewarding than growing your own vegetables from seed? We have seen a dramatic increase in the number of first time vegetable growers over the last few years.
From what we are hearing from our customers, the reasons are varied. Newly retired people tell us they now have the time to spend on starting their veggies from seed.

We carry seeds from an assortment of companies so that we may offer you just what you are looking for.

Did You Know?
A healthy lawn starts with a healthy root system, which means you’ll want to start with a minimum of 8 inches of topsoil for your grass to establish its root. Make sure your topsoil is level to minimize low areas and depressions that can lead to wet areas that can drown out or cause winter kill in your lawn.
