How to grow seedlings

How to Grow

  • Space plants 15-18" apart

  • Amend with a high quality, organic fertilizer

Know Your Zone

Basil is an annual warm season herb, and is tender to frost and light freezes. Be prepared to protect if there is a late cold spell. For transplants, the warmer the soil temperature the better. Air temperature should be above 50 degrees ( preferably closer to 70 degrees) fahrenheit. Estimated time to transplant seedlings is 2-4 weeks after the last frost date for your area.

How should I care for my seedlings after I receive them?

Take your seedlings out of the package before carefully removing each individual plant from their respective cartons. Be careful as the soil may have lightly dispersed during transportation.

Your seedlings may have dried out a little during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a bit of water.

Give your plants the chance to get acclimated to their new home. Place them in a warm, sunny spot for 1 to 2 days so they can recover from their journey before planting.

When is the best time to plant seedlings in my area?

It will depend on where you live. To learn more, you can make use of the transplant date calculator towards the top of the product page for the seedling you are interested in. You can also scroll down to the “Know Your Zone” section to learn more about the specific plant and to make use of our Hardiness Zone tool. Just enter your zip code!

What kind of soil should I use for transplanting seedlings?

Ideally you will use a soil that is well-drained and high in organic matter content, like Vego Garden’s Finishing Soil.

How often should I water my seedlings?

You’ll water as needed. You want them lightly moist but not soaked, like a wrung out sponge. Don’t let them dry out or some damage could be done.

Do you offer any organic or non-GMO seedlings?

Our plants are all non-GMO, but are technically not organic. Our plants are all grown using low-input IPM practices. We are unable to secure an organic provider that is large enough to meet our order volume, so we went with a provider that uses the least persistent, lowest impact treatment products possible from their perspective. *Moving forward we hope to find more organic options.

Do you have any recommendations for fertilizing seedlings?

We recommend a fertilizer that provides essential vitamins & minerals and feeds the indigenous soil microbes, like our Organic Slow Release Fertilizer (NPK 6-2-4).

Can I plant my seedlings directly into the ground or should I use containers?

No matter what, you will do better with a prepared soil, like our Vego Garden Finishing Soil, rather than directly into the ground. To further enhance the experience you can plant in a raised garden bed or self-watering planter. To learn more about the benefits of growing in containers, check out this blog

What kind of sunlight do the seedlings require?

All of our plants need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight once hardened off.

What if the package gets damaged during shipping?

Because of the weight of our packages, there may be some panels bent in transit if UPS/Fedex handle it in a rough way. No worries, you can fix this easily so your gardening isn't delayed. Our panels are manufactured through a bending process from flat steel coils, in other words, they were bent before. It will not affect the corrosion resistance to bend them back. It may be hard to bend all the panels at one time, but you can always bend them back one by one. Here is an instructional video you may find helpful:
