If you are a teacher looking for free vegetable garden seeds for your student or residents, you have come to the right place! David's Garden Seeds And Products has received several requests from elementary, middle school teachers and nursing homes around the United States asking if we would provide free garden seeds for students to plant as community garden projects.
We here at David's Garden Seeds And Products want to help students develop a lifelong love of gardening so we are providing herb and flower seeds as well as vegetable seeds for classroom use.
We also believe that home schools are important as well. We home schooled one of our children. He is a musical genesis and the schools just did not understand him. He is releasing his first CD in time for Christmas. We are really proud of him.
Please share your classroom experiences and photos with us as your students plant and nurture the seeds and plants. We would love to hear how you used the free seeds and we would also enjoy seeing a few photos! Feature your classroom here at David's Garden Seeds And Products.
We raised three children and we know how excited kids get when the seeds they plant grow into a beautiful plant and the produced something they could eat.
Go to David's Amazon Store, to make your selections.
Once you have made your selections, email David at email@example.com with your name, your school contact information, and which seeds you would like for your class. David will then take care of your order.
The garden seeds must be shipped to the teacher at their school address, not a home address. Or to the address of a retirement center. Please include the name of your school. We will ship up to 10 packages of seeds to you.
We do not send old seeds but send the same seeds we are selling for the season. We want you to be successful with your project.
The free seeds are not really free. Nothing is really free. What is the cost?
One is we would appreciate you spreading the word about our business. Our business grows each year by word of mouth.
Second we would love to hear of your gardening experiences. Photos would be great as well. Please write your own page on our site telling us your classroom garden story. Thank you!
If you are one of the many classroom teachers who has ordered seeds from us for your students, we would love to hear about your classroom experience with the seeds. How did the students like the project? Tell us what they grew and how the seeds were used. Photos would be awesome.
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.
