Connecting With Giving Ground Seeds
Play • 35 min

We often don’t think too much about seeds as a gardener.  We know that seeds must be planted for plants to grow and during these difficult times, seed suppliers have seen a huge demand for seeds as new gardeners try to grow a garden for the very first time. 

Many big seed suppliers have stopped taking new orders and people are looking for seeds to protect their food supply but how many of us really connect to the seed we grow and the companies or people that supply our seed to grow?

Today in this episode, I’m interviewing Julie Sheen from Giving Ground Seeds.  If you are curious about what happens behind the scenes of a small, family-owned seed business and you want to learn some tips for starting your garden, then grab yourself a cuppa tea and settle into this conversation where we talk about:

  • Organic seeds
  • Open-pollinated seeds
  • Landrace seeds
  • Adapting to the conditions of your garden
  • Climate challenges
  • Starting small and creative ideas for backyard growers
  • Plants and seeds for first-time gardeners
  • Frost protection you can use in your garden
  • Organic strategies to try in your garden to reduce pests
  • Behind the scenes of a seed grower
  • Easy crops to start seed saving
