Friday Favorite: Renee’s Garden

March 13th, 2015

I’ve been buying seeds from Renee’s Garden for many years. One of my favorite things about her seeds is that you can get multiple varieties in one package. This year I got the Long Harvest Broccoli that contains three different varieties in the seed packet. This is so handy for those of us that don’t want to buy three different packets of seed but would like to grow a few different varieties. I’m really interested to see how this work, I’d love to have a longer broccoli season.

The seeds are color coded as well, so you can label them as needed. These were the zucchini seeds I planted two years ago.

I’m so appreciative that Renee takes the time to develop handy things like this that are so helpful for the home gardener. Her varieties are also selected specifically with the home gardener in mind.

Do like to grow multiple varieties of the same vegetable?

    Susy, multiple varieties in one package is a great idea. I didn’t know any one did that. Things like squash and pumpkins don’t require a huge amount of seeds to plant to produce a big harvest.

    Have a great multiple seed start day.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who loves these! It makes me more able to use up an entire seed package before they get old, and fit more variety into my space. I think I”ve used Renee’s basil blend, and Fedco has a mixed broccoli and a mixed Kale that I love, but the color-coordinated seeds are SUCH a good idea, do they do that with broccoli too? Will definitely check these out.
