BIG PLAN: Get out in the Garden!
While we wait out the last of the winter chill up North, our Southern friends are already up to their elbows in dirt! Consider us jealous. Now is the time to start preparing all the seeds we started indoors to get to their vacation homes outside. We are thinking about taking care of our seedlings, hardening off those seedlings once our frost dates pass (find yours here!) and getting your garden ready for a bountiful season. We are also thrilled to announce our Second Annual Garden Get Together LIVE event on National Gardening Day, Friday, April 14th and our new Mother's Day Gift Guide. Details below!

What does "Hardening Off Your Plants" even mean?
“Hardening off” is the term for getting plants acclimated outdoors. This is done by gradually (over 7-10 days) introducing them to the direct sunlight, dry air, and colder temperatures of the outdoors for a few hours each day before permanently planting them outside after the last frost date in your area.
Why is it important?
Your seedlings have been living a pretty charmed life indoors for the past few weeks. They will need time to adjust to the sun, temperatures, and wind. A gentle breeze helps stems thicken, but a stiff wind might break them! Hardening off your seedlings gradually will help stop sun scorch, stem breakage, transplant shock, and seedling failure.
How do you do it?
Set plants out for a few hours at a time and then increase every few days. You'll want to acclimate your plants to the sun gradually so start in a shady spot!
Water regularly, ensuring consistent moisture but allowing the soil to dry slightly.
Fertilize at half-to-full strength with a balanced liquid fertilizer about every other watering.
Move plants back indoors at night when temperatures drop. Moving them back outside in the morning.
Once your plants are happy outside all day and your frost date has passed go plant ‘em outdoors!
What you need now: Tools for Transplanting
Your last frost date is approaching and your seedlings may be getting cramped indoors. Now is the time to take extra care of your seedlings, get them used to larger spaces and outdoor temperatures gradually. We have the tools and steps to keep those seedlings happy!
Potting Up Time!
When your plants are looking cramped, it’s time to pot up!
Transfer your seedings into a larger pot and place in a tray.
Light is still critical - make sure you adjust the light up as the plants grow.
