Every year Project Grow holds a plant sale offering hard to find heirloom tomatoes, peppers and basil. This year we are offering 75 varieties of tomatoes, 23 varieties of peppers, and 2 varieties of basil.
In addition, we are also offering lisianthus and sweet peas!
The peppers and basil will be started at the end of February and the tomatoes in mid-March. These are large, husky plants sold in 3.5" pots. We are growing them in our hoop house at Dawn Farm so they are already acclimated to cool temperatures, outdoor sunshine and spring breezes.
Tomatoes, peppers and basil cannot tolerate freezing temperatures and must be brought inside or protected from late spring frost. The lisianthus and sweet peas are both cold hardy and can be planted out right away.
