Sale goes live on Saturday, April 23rd, 2022, at 9am EDT.
Welcome to our 2022 Seedling Sale! The sale is your annual chance to take home certified organically grown seedlings of many of the varieties in our catalog. We will be offering vegetable, flower, and herb seedlings ready to transplant directly into your garden.
A T T E N T I O N
Our seedlings sell out very quickly–and this season we'll have an especially limited supply–so please read the important updates below before purchasing.
Are the seedlings you're looking for sold out?
Our inventory this year is especially limited, and once an item is sold out it will not come back in stock. Please try our friends at Four Winds Farm, in Gardiner, NY, or Clove Valley Community Farm, in High Falls—or check with local farms and nurseries in your area.
The Future of the Seedling Sale
We are happy to announce that we are growing—not only seedlings, but as a company. Over the course of the next year, we will be constructing multiple additional greenhouses to meet the increased demand for seedlings we have seen develop over recent years. We're very excited about the future of the sale!
However, growth is rarely smooth, and due to factors beyond our control we have less greenhouse space available to us this spring than we usually do. This unfortunately means that for 2022 only, fewer seedlings will be available to meet the needs of local growers.
For those who normally drive long distances to buy our seedlings, we encourage you to shop seedlings at your local farms and nurseries this season.
Because of space limitations, we will be offering some seedlings—such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and certain herbs—for purchase exclusively as single 4" plants this year, rather than as 4-packs. Single plants are generally larger than pack-grown seedlings and remain an excellent value; however, if you normally buy bulk quantities of a specific variety (such as a dozen Paul Robeson Tomatoes), you may want to consider whether the cost-savings of growing at home outweigh the convenience and cost of single plant seedlings.
Additionally, we have had to eliminate for this year many varieties that can be easily and successfully direct sown in the garden. For tips on direct sowing, check out this blog post.
In 2023, we expect to have the capacity to achieve triple the production of recent seasons, allowing us to more easily meet the needs of the wider community. We know that our limited seedling supply and the rush to secure seedlings has been a stressful experience for many of our customers, and we are excited to be able to address these problems next year. Please bear with us, as the infrastructure required to accommodate the demand for seedlings will take time, money, and hard work to build out. But we are doing it, with much enthusiasm, and we hope to share the results with you in one year's time. Thanks for your patience and support!
About the 2022 Sale
Sale goes live on Saturday, April 23rd, 2022, at 9am EDT.
All of our seedlings are Certified Organic by NOFA-NY LLC
The 2022 seedling sale will take place as an online presale followed by an in-person pick-up event. The seedling distribution will take place May 19-21 at Neighborhood 209 (formerly Skate Time 209), at 5164 US Highway 209, in Accord, New York—just a couple of miles from our office and greenhouses. The large parking lot at the site will afford us the opportunity to safely and efficiently serve our usual customer volume in an appointment-based, curbside pick-up distribution method. Growers will be able to order their seedlings from our offerings below and arrange a time for curbside pick-up of their order.
How it works:
1. Get shopping! Fill a cart with the seedlings you want and check out as normal. Note that you'll also be able to order other products from us as well. Non-seedling products, such as seeds, potatoes, dahlia tubers, compost and soil amendments, tools, and more, will be available for pick-up from our regular office location within a few days of placing your order; if you don't pick up these items before the seedling pick-up, these items will be brought to the distribution site for you to pick up with your seedlings. You also have the option of shopping in our pop-up shop at time of pick up. All seedling sale customers receive 15% off additional purchases. Fruit trees will be available for pick-up ahead of your seedlings at our Retail Store location; keep an eye on your email inbox for a separate pick-up time.
2. Check out. Once you've finished filling your cart, please check out as normal, being sure to select "in-person pick-up" as your shipping method. Note that if you have seedlings in your cart, it will permit you to select *only* the in-person pick-up option.
3. Schedule your pick-up time. Once you've paid for your order, you'll need to schedule a time to pick it up. This can be done from a link you'll find in your order confirmation email. There, you'll be able to choose an available time-slot to pick up your seeds in person. Please note that if your desired time slot is not showing, it means that it has already been booked up by other gardeners. Please choose another.
4. Come and get your plants at the time you have booked. Please note that in order for this pick-up to go as smoothly as possible, it is important that you arrive at your chosen time slot. As we have to move goods to this pick-up location from our main facility, we cannot guarantee that your order will be with us at any other time. If something arises and you cannot make your time slot, please reschedule via the scheduling app (you'll find a link in your email).
Return and Refund Policy: Seedlings are living organisms and as such, we cannot guarantee 100% availability on your order. If an item(s) is unavailable, we will issue a refund. If you experience problems with your seedlings, please contact us within 5 days of order pick up. Refunds will not be granted for crop losses due to weather conditions, improper storage conditions, improper planting, or critter/insect damage.
