Economic Edible Gardening

Whether you are feeding just yourself or your entire family, our team is ready and looking forward to helping you grow a successful edible garden this year! One of the easiest and most economical ways to begin is by starting an edible crop from seed. Some seeds need to be started indoors weeks ahead of transplanting, while others can be sown directly into the soil outside. Each year our team carefully selects a collection of these “direct sow” seeds, saving you both time and money.

Now is the time to plant seeds of lettuce, kale, spinach, chard, carrots, peas, and radishes. These grow best in the cool weather of March, April, and May and can be planted in containers, ground beds, or raised beds. Want to skip the seeding step all together? Then check out our nice selection of locally grown spring crops sprouted and ready to be planted. Seed potatoes, onion and shallot sets, garlic, and asparagus crowns are scheduled to arrive in early March and should ideally be planted by mid-May.

If you need soil, we have organic potting soil for your containers as well as soil amendments, like worm castings and hen manure, for your raised and ground beds. Stop by soon to see our full collection of seeds, soils, seasonal transplants, tools, and supplies.

Operating Hours

Under the Governor’s executive order and as an agriculture-based business, we are still operating and open for business Tuesday - Saturday from 11am to 4pm for in-store shopping and 10am to 5pm for curbside order pickup. Delivery services are also available.

We are committed to providing you with the top quality customer service you are used to from our team, but our priority at the moment is safety--yours and our employees’. To protect you and our staff, we have implemented temporary changes to our operations, effective immediately.

For inventory questions: If you still have questions after checking our lists, please send us an email or message us on Instagram, where we also regularly share pictures of our exciting new arrivals and sale items. At this time, because of high call volume to coordinate curbside pickup, we cannot answer inventory questions by phone.

For advice specific to you and your garden: We are proud of our knowledgeable and friendly team of horticulturists and staff, and we love helping you decide which plants would thrive in your garden. At this time, if you have more complicated questions or need some of our great advice, please email us instead of coming to our store. Include your name, phone number, and questions (or pictures, if applicable), and we will call or email you back as soon as we can.

Ready to place your order? You have options!

1. Online ordering for curbside pickup or delivery: Send us your order, including exact variety, size, and quantity (by using our inventory list above) to gardeninfo@plantkingdom.net or @tpklovesplants on Instagram. Include your pickup preference--we offer free curbside pick-up or low-cost delivery to your home--and your phone number so that we can give you a call when your order is ready. Please be patient as we are expecting a very high call, email, and Instagram volume at this time, but generally, orders placed before 12 p.m. are available for same-day pickup and orders placed after 12 p.m. are available the next business day. Mulch and soil orders exceeding 10 bags will be next business day pick up. We can collect payment over the phone when we call to let you know when your order is ready or in-store at the time of pick-up. Note: we will only hold orders without payment until the end of day.
2. Limited in-store shopping (no in-store browsing): We will only be allowing 3 serious customers into our store at a time, individual shoppers only, no groups. Please arrive prepared by using our inventory lists above.

Frost Free? You Decide…

According to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration the estimated last day of freeze for Metro Louisville is April 1st – 15th; however, because we are in a “warm pocket” surrounded by “cooler counties” this puts us higher risk for a drop in temperature later that estimated. To read the full article, visit the NOAA website. The map you will see depicts the time of year, on average, that areas across the nation can expect to see their temperatures dip to 32°F or below for the last time. Use this information as a guide to plan your schedule for the garden this spring. You will need to take appropriate measures to protect any cold sensitive annuals, warm season vegetables, and houseplants taken outside from the potentially damaging frost or freezes we might see in the coming weeks.

Happy New Year!
