ABOUT ASBURY GARDENS
Asbury Gardens sells organically grown vegetable seedlings from DeJager Bulb at 188 Asbury Street in Hamilton. Please use the drop-down menu above for descriptions and photos of all of the varieties that we'll be selling in 2018. They are all grown in my greenhouse in Hamilton using organic and environmentally sound practices.
For 2018, we are once again expanding our offerings. Given my passion for tomatoes of all colors, sizes and shapes, we will be carrying a few new varieties of tomatoes such as Matt's Wild Cherry, Snow White Cherry, Beauty King, Lucid Gem, Summer of Love and Pineapple. I've also ordered a number of other varieties to trial in my own garden this summer. If you have any varieties you would like me to sell, please let me know. There are so many beautiful varieties that it’s hard to find the space to grow them all.
This year, I'll also be expanding my herb offerings to include rosemary, oregano, thyme, sage, chive, dill, tarragon, mint and fennel. As with last year, we will be carrying many other types of vegetables, including peppers, eggplant, squash, cucumber, etc.
For all of the varieties I sell, I try to find varieties that are more vigorous or more resistant to the pests and diseases that have impacted my own garden over the years. I also sell several varieties of organic fertilizers and 6 foot wide floating row covers in custom lengths. While there are no silver bullets, the use of appropriate varieties and growing practices can increase yields and reduce the need for pesticides.
Thank you all for your patronage last year. I enjoyed every bit of the Asbury Gardens operations - from planting the first few seeds in my greenhouse to talking to so many of you about your gardens. It is rewarding to sell my plants to so many people who are enthusiastic about growing their own vegetables using locally sourced organic plants.
It was great to receive emails and photos from a number of happy customers at the end of last summer. I'm looking forward to seeing many of you again this spring and meeting new customers. Please stop by and say hello.
