About Our Nursery and Plants
We plant many seeds at Penobscot Potting Shed. All of our plants are certified organic. We are committed to sourcing the highest quality materials to grow the highest quality garden starts. We have researched and sourced heirloom, open-pollinated varieties that are particularly suited to the growing conditions people in Maine will encounter. We do carry a few popular hybrids. Many of the varieties we offer are not available in the popular catalogs we are all familiar with. All of our seedlings are grown in soil blocks or Cowpots, significantly reducing our use of plastic while at the same time increasing the quality of the plant.
About your growers
Andy grew up in Ohio and Tania grew up in New Zealand. They met in South Korea in 2003 where they taught English. In 2010, after nearly 10 years of teaching, they moved to Maine to raise their son and lead a less urban life. On 3 acres of land in Penobscot, Maine they operate a small family farm propagating nursery stock.
