This is our index page to give you tips on planting and growing vegetables.  It is a combination of information gathered from books, websites and David's own growing experiences.

I started this page on September 22, 2018.  It will take me some time to get all the pages up so bear with me.

Currently, today is September 11, 2020 and I am updating this page. We still don't have much on the page. That is because our business has really taken off this past spring, mostly due to coronavirus. While a lot of small businesses closed, our business more than doubled in the spring because of empty grocery store shelves.

So many new gardeners bought seeds, a lot of seeds. Hundreds of dollars worth of seeds on many orders. Some are still buying a lot of seeds all at once. Last March, we had to hire nine new people whose jobs went away due to coronavirus so they could help us fill orders. Yes, we went from getting a handful of orders each day to having over 10,000 orders in our queue.

That was shocking, yet wonderful. We ran out of a lot of varieties of seeds. So did all of the other seed companies. In fact, major seed companies would shut down for spans of time because they were overwhelmed with orders. Other companies stopped selling to home gardeners but continued to sell commercially. David's Garden Seeds® never shut down. In fact, we increased our hours to seven days a week, twelve hours a day. It was an exhausting time from March through the end of May. The orders finally slowed down as summer hit. Then we moved our entire company down to the farm, an hour outside of San Antonio, where David and Juanita moved in August of 2019.

We are grateful for all of the orders and it is a smart thing to learn how to grow your own food, especially if stores cannot keep up with demand. They say there will be a fall hit from coronavirus, but so far, I think there are less cases of it, which is wonderful.

The first thing I want you to do is read our page on Germination Tips.  A lot of problems and frustration can be avoided by following these starter tips, especially if you are new at gardening. This is the best page on the whole website because it teaches how to get your seeds properly planted so they will germinate and grow.

Please check back often as I will be creating more growing pages as time allows.

All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
