Gibberellic Acid We are the original home of GA-3 and GA-3 Kits made available to the public for seed germination. Other sites copy our Gibberellic Acid Information and Instructions on their websites, and sell kits of varying quality and value, but rest assured that you have come to the original source! Gibberellic Acid-3 (GA-3) is a naturally occurring plant growth regulator which may cause a variety of effects including the stimulation of seed germination in some cases. GA-3 occurs naturally in the seeds of many species and is produced commercially by growing Gibberella fujikuroi fungus cultures in vats, then extracting and purifying the GA-3. Presoaking seeds in GA-3 solution will in many cases cause the rapid germination of many types of highly dormant seeds which would otherwise need cold treatment, after-ripening or ageing, or other prolonged pretreatments. GA-3 is safe to use.

10 Best Heirloom Seed Companies as Selected By Readers © MrBrownThumb When I set out to publish the post on seed sources for foodies, Kitchen Gardeners, and Chefs I did not intend to create an all-inclusive list of seed sources. I thought I would just highlight four of them, and maybe TreeHugger readers would find one they had not heard of before. I expected the post would be well-received because of the seed companies that I chose. What I did not expect was the reaction from TreeHugger readers in the comments of the post, TreeHugger's Facebook Page, my Facebook page, and my Twitter account.

Three Sisters Garden: Corn, Beans, Squash - A Native American tradition Early European settlers would certainly never have survived without the gift of the Three Sisters from the Native Americans, the story behind our Thanksgiving celebration. Celebrating the importance of these gifts, not only to the Pilgrims but also to civilizations around the globe that readily adopted these New World crops, adds meaning to modern garden practices Success with a Three Sisters garden involves careful attention to timing, seed spacing, and varieties.

How to plant a lettuce bed Lettuce was the first vegetable I learned to grow, and it's still one of my favorites. I tried a bunch of different growing methods then meandered my way back to the same method my father taught me to start with. My method will take you about an hour the first time you build the cold frame and, if you have some old boards lying around your barn, will cost about about fifty cents in screws and seeds.

If you don't have enough of one and if you have too much of the other, you'll end up with bitter lettuce.

Step by Step – Make your own Permaculture No Dig raised bed Step by Step – Make your own Permaculture No Dig raised bed Posted by azulvaleriethome on December 12, 2012 · 19 Comments Raised Bed Workshop- Step by Step Using raised beds can be a great way to grow crops in small spaces. Building them involves less digging and soil disturbance than dug beds as organic matter is simple layered on top of the earth (usually mulched first with a thick layer of cardboard) and worms and micro organisms are encouraged to move up from below to break it down into lush soil. In this way you effectively create an extra layer of topsoil to grow your plants in and the raised edges give you a contained space where you can easily manage weeds and fertility.
