Seedling in the nursery

Sowing in a nursery has many advantages, the main one being that it allows certain plants to grow in optimal conditions.

The young plants will then be transplanted one or more times until they find their final place in your garden or vegetable patch.

Thus, we will take advantage of a place in the garden that is well exposed to the sun and sheltered from the wind to seed.
