My husband, David, is an avid backyard gardener, a sort of city farmer and he has been since he was a teenager. My name is Juanita and no matter where we have lived across the United States, we have always had a garden. David and I raised three children on healthy fruits and vegetables, many of them grown in our own backyard. (Don't get me wrong--we love meat, fish, and chicken as well!)
We've learned to prepare, blanch, freeze, and can fruits and vegetables and we will share recipes and steps with you so you can give your family healthy and tasty homemade dishes as well as save food for later use.
David loves to garden so much that he turned his hobby into a business. It all started with our first gardening site, Vegetable Gardening Made Easier. From there, we set up a store on Amazon to sell our products. Then we changed the old website over to match our company name, David's Garden Seeds And Products. Ta-da! Our company was born! That was six years ago (2009) and we are growing each year.
Get your whole family involved and make gardening a fun time! Do not approach it as another chore to be done, but as a fun experience so your children will want to help. Let them know it is important to know how to grow your own food because it is healthier and tastier than the produce you get at the store. Then when they are adults, they will continue gardening and pass their gardening knowledge on to their children! Our three children helped when they were young by digging, planting seeds, watering, weeding, and picking the vegetables, under adult supervision, of course. They loved playing in the dirt.
You can increase your children's in garden seeds as they get older. They will learn the valuable skill of planting and growing food so they can have gardens of their own when they are adults.
David's Garden Products are top of the line quality seeds so they cost more than the seeds you buy at discount stores. They are worth it. They grow and produce good quality plants when the package directions are followed. We know because we have used them for years and we continue to test them out in our yard and in our home.
We test all sorts of garden seeds and products. I say "we" but really David is the tester and the "farmer" of our family. He has a green thumb and grows some beautiful vegetables and fruits for us to enjoy. Our backyard is where we grow everything. We have raised garden beds and several do-it-yourself greenhouses, where we try out a lot of the latest products and try growing many of the flowers and vegetables we sell.
You will find a lot of gardening tips and tricks, instructions for planting, sowing, fertilizing, weeding, harvesting, serving ideas, and even some recipes here. The information is free for you, learned by us through trial and error over a lifetime of experience in many climates around the United States.
In 2012, our younger son, Matt, joined us full time and in 2013, our older son, Andrew, came on full time. Our daughter, Tiffany, now works for us as well after graduating from college in May of 2014.
have some team members who are not a part of our family. Our whole team is here to help make your garden planning a great experience!
David's Garden Seeds And Products has taken the Safe Seed Pledge.
This means that all of our seeds are non-GMO. We care about your family's health because we care about the health of our own family. You can safely grow plants that are all natural, safe, and healthy for you and for your loved ones.
Look for our official David's Garden Seeds And Products logo on our seed packets as shown below.
The seed is a living embryo that contains enough energy to germinate and break the surface. But if planted too deep, it will run out of energy and die before it breaks the surface.
Keep the soil moist, but not wet, with a temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
Over watering will drown the seed. Here is a good rule to follow: The dirt should be moist like brown sugar up to the first knuckle of your finger. If it is dry like salt, the dirt is too dry for your seeds to germinate. If it is wet like cake batter, then it is too wet.
The best watering is bottom watering. Put your starter pots in a tray and let them soak up the water they need until they germinate. Pour the water in the tray, not in each pot. Watering the top of the pot can dislodge the germinating seeds and kill them.
Seeds should germinate in about 7 to 14 days, and sometimes even 21 days, depending on the seed type.
If you are starting your seeds indoors, seeds need 12 to 14 hours of daylight a day. A grow light will be needed. A regular florescent or lamp light will not do the job.
This means you will need to make a small investment. Putting your pots on a window sill will not work in most cases. If the seeds do not get enough light, they will grow tall and thin and then die.
Below are just a few of the comments some of our customers have left, either through email or through our Amazon store.
"There are not enough characters available to describe the integrity of this seller and the willingness to please the customer that I was blessed with when I ordered from David's Garden Seeds. David has gone above and beyond and then some more to be sure I was a satisfied customer.(I am) I will always shop here first when buying my seeds in the spring. Class act all the way! Thank you very much!!!" --Gail, Texas
"Thank you so much for your generous donation to our nursing home. Your kindness has touched the lives of our residents and staff." --Nurse Carol, Baton Rouge, LA
"Will definitely order from David's Garden Seeds in the future! The
seed-starting tray that I ordered was sent and received in a timely
manner, and, as expected, is very well-made. In addition, the seller
responds to messages very promptly and politely, which is a rarity in a
day and age when a person generally gets stuck on the phone with
elevator music for an eternity!"
Thank You from the bottom of my heart, for your service to this great country. Although I have purchased items from your company before, and have nothing but good things to say about your company, I just found out that you are a Veteran. Know that from now on, when I have gardening supplies to buy through Amazon, I will be looking for them first at your storefront. I again would just like to say thank you and God Bless to you for all the sacrifices you have made, so that I could enjoy the freedoms so many take for granted.--Hiram
I NEVER leave comments: I am the shy guy. For the first time in my life I left one for you.
First, this is an amazing product. Could not be happier.
Second, this seller is of the utmost integrity. I made a mistake, and ordered the wrong size. I contacted him and explained my error. BEFORE I EVEN RETURNED my items, the new items were already on the way. Who does that, plus this was entirely my fault.
More orders on my way: THANK YOU!
I mean every word of it.
You are my hero, as a veteran, but also for your integrity.
You are the best man:)--Frederic D.
