Our Survival Garden Progress

Our Survival Garden Progress

The whole team here at Survival Garden Seeds is thrilled that Spring planting season has arrived. If you ever had any doubts about whether our staff was actual gardeners, we thought we would share photos of some of our garden progress to ease those doubts.  

Our most ambitious gardener is Angee, who takes care of all of our seed ordering, germination tests, and customer service, among many other things. Angee is in Hardiness Zone 5, very close to Zone 4b, so outdoor planting for her won’t be until late May or early June. However, she’s got plenty to do to get ready. She’s preparing seedlings for 4 different gardens and has planted 27 10” x 20” trays. In a team effort, she and her husband created some handy shelving in a spare room to hold it all.

Heidi, who helps with marketing and creates some of our wonderful Tiktok and YouTube videos is also in Zone 5. She lives in a small space so she’s working on growing our Apartment Collection of container-friendly vegetables. Her seedlings are just starting to grow.
