Custom Seed and Cutting Soil Blends

As promised, here are the one half gallon bags of peat moss, vermiculite, and perlite.  As well as one pound bags of sand.  I did some searching to see what others are offering and most of them are offering quart bags of individual ingredients.  Half a gallon is two quarts and I am offering free shipping! 

With these ingredients, you can create the custom soil your particular seeds or cuttings need to get a good start.  Most fuchsia seeds, for example, are so tiny, they need to be sown onto a moist surface, but not buried.  A thin layer of fine sand over peat moss or vermiculite, gives you a smooth surface and you don't have to worry about tiny seeds falling down into the gaps between chunks of soil.  I hope to be sowing some fern spore this year and this is exactly what I will need.

You can buy each ingredient individually, or in sets.  The set shown, also includes the sand.
And if you drop me a note on Etsy telling me that you saw my post here, I will add a set of 10 white blank plant labels in your order for free!

Seed And Cuttings Starter Kit with Free Shipping

You will be helping me get the fuchsia nursery back up and running.  Everything depends on what I can accomplish during the next six weeks!

Royal Velvet is doing great!

Introducing Planting Mix Supplies and Blank Plant Labels

I am getting into the swing of things and looking forward to all kinds of floral and vegetable seed coming up soon!  All of the items I have listed in my Etsy shop will also be added to an entirely redesigned website I've been working on this winter.

To get the ball rolling, I will be offering small flowering plants first.  Such as viola's, primrose, labelia, godetias, zinnias, etc.  While the fuchsia cuttings root and grow large enough to survive shipping.

Meanwhile, I have begun offering blank white plastic plant labels in sets of 20 for $5.00 a set and free shipping:

And today I listed One Pound Cleaned and Sifted Sand for $10 and free shipping.  This amount is perfect if you just need a little bit to cover the soil in a house plant or for starting fine seed that must be sprouted on a moist surface.  It can also be used to create your own soil mixes for the specific needs of your plants, cuttings, or seedlings:

Tomorrow I will be adding perlite, vermiculite, and peat moss in quart bags.
