New Ferry-Morse 2019 Vegetable and Flower Seeds

Ferry-Morse 2019 Additions

Each year at Ferry-Morse we are able to acquire new seed varieties to share with our customers. In 2019, we've had some highly anticipated additions that we are now excited to offer our customers. You will see some completely new varieties, as well as beloved Ferry-Morse varieties that now come in Sow-Easy and Organic options. 

Not only do we update our seed collections each year, but you should too. If you've been scraping seeds from the bottom of last year's seed packets, it may be time for you to make an update. Though seeds have shelf lives that can extend up to 2 years, their germination viability won't be at it's full potential after a full year.

    How early is too early to plant seeds and are they ok to plant before the suggested date?

    Hi Pamela, to nick seeds, make as shallow a cut as possible on the seed, just deep enough to allow water to penetrate the seed coat. Be careful to avoid damaging the plant embryo inside the seed – you want to cut just through the seed coat while leaving the plant embryo and other structures within the seed unharmed. Many seeds have a hilum, a scar left where the seed was attached to the ovary inside the fruit. The hilum is easy to find on beans and peas. For example, the “eye” of a black-eyed pea is the hilum. Because the bean embryo is attached just under the hilum, it is best to nick the seed opposite this point to avoid causing damage. As far as tools, you can use the edge of a nail clipper, a nail file, or a knife, or you can sand through the seed coat with a bit of sandpaper. After nicking, it is a good idea to soak the seeds for a few hours or overnight. Then, get them planted right away. Once they’re nicked they shouldn’t be stored because they can quickly lose the ability to germinate.

    On the directions for F-M Moonflower it says to nick the seed before soaking overnight before planting… what exactly is the “nick”? I am guessing on the root end of the seed where it seems dense, but that is just a guess. Help…
    Thank you.
