Horn Farm Happenings – April 7

potting up seedlings
Preparation for our Heirloom Plant Sale on May 6 starts months ahead. Depending on their needs, seeds are planted in trays of 32, 72, 98, or 128. Once the seedlings emerge they get ‘potted up’ into 3″ or 4″ pots where they live until the plant sale. This year we will have more than 15,000 plants–over 300 varieties of flowers, fruits, herbs, and vegetables. Click here for a list of plants.
