VeggieHead6Every Sauce Begins with a Seed

Delicious, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables are always within easy reach when you grow them yourself. This year, devote part of your yard, deck, or patio to your personal favorites and enjoy the best nature has to offer.

After all, every tomato sauce begins with a seed. Start your tomato plants with seeds from Rohsler’s in early spring, or visit us at the nursery in May to purchase healthy, garden-ready plants. In either case, with proper care, your plants should be producing an abundance of tomatoes this summer.

Check your favorite recipes now. If you will need oregano or basil, be sure to grow those herbs, too. That way, you’ll have what you need when it’s time to start simmering.

Take the “Oh No” out of GMO

Growing your own food means taking control of your diet. You’ll be able to avoid GMOs, herbicides, and pesticides while keeping yourself stoked with amazing organic fuel. When you buy seeds in packets marked with the USDA Organic logo, you know exactly what you’re getting.

The organic soil amendments and plant foods available at Rohsler’s will help fortify your plants. If you’re ready to take things a bit further, talk to Rohsler’s experts about the benefits of a compost bin.

Versatile Vegetable Venues

If you don’t have space for a dedicated vegetable garden, try planting a few varieties right in your annual and perennial beds. It works! The edible landscape or foodscaping is becoming more popular every year. Bright Lights Swiss Chard is a great vegetable with both ornamental and edible attributes. Try planting some blueberries in the landscape for some delicious berries and vibrant fall foliage.  

Some vegetable plants will take off in a hanging basket or container garden.

Need a container? Try our Earthboxes. These convenient, self-watering containers (with wheels) are perfect for the patio or deck. We also carry Frame It All modular raised bed kits made of composite timber and Gronomics elevated garden beds made of rot resistant cedar.

Rohsler's abundant selection of vegetable plants includes heirloom varieties, grafted tomatoes, brand new introductions, and an impressive variety of both hot and sweet peppers.

We also invite you to plant fruit trees, assorted berries, grape vines, and hops. Ask our knowledgeable staff what you’ll need to maintain your new plants. We want you to succeed!
