The first seedlings popping up are these dwarf peas;

In the meantime we also started to sow; amaranth, beets, different types of basil, coriander, thyme, different types of butternut, beans, flowers like marigold…

We are looking for plants for our green roof and exploring vertical wall systems.


We started 2 weeks ago with mainly peppers, tomatoes, dwarf peas and eggplants. The varieties we got from Emmanuel Iruthayathasan (who has bred his own varieties focused on flavor for more than 10 years).

To increase the success rate, take the following steps;

Step 1. Label your pots (with labels and write on the pots)

Step 2. fill the pots with seed-starting mix, leave space about 1 inch. Never use regular garden soil to start seedlings.  

 Step 3. Add water until the soil is saturated

Step 4. Make small holes and place the seeds as pictured below if you are growing eggplants or peppers.

Step 5. Cover first with some soil. Finish with turf

Step 6. Place into a light spot and DON’T water during 2 weeks
