Beier's Garden Starters
In a climate such as ours; Where the growing season is somewhat short and unpredictable, we at Beier’s provide our customers with the kind of plants they need to have a successful, plentiful growing season. Beier’s garden starters are ready to grow when you put them in the ground.
Garden starters are great ways to jump start your garden. In early spring, we hand sow selected vegetable varieties to provide you with the benefit of a quicker harvest. Unlike weak plants that are grown fast in a hot environment , we acclimate the temperature of our greenhouse to produce hardier plants that do not take such a shock when planted outside.
