The Crown Point Garden Club will be at Hamilton Seedy Saturday on February 4, 2023, with a vendor table and garden-related goodies for sale. We’ll have bags of plug and germination mix, one of our popular items from pre-Covid Seedy Saturday events.

This peat and perlite based soil-less mix is an extra fine, greenhouse-grower quality Pro-mix especially made for seed germination. We are selling it in 1.5 lb (dry weight) bags for $3.00 per bag or two bags for $5.00.

Each bag is enough for four (possibly five) pop-bottle type wintersowing containers.

If you’ve tried germinating tiny seeds and had disappointing results, this seeding mix may be the answer.
