How do I know if I need sun or shade plants?

Getting the right plants for the right place is important. Sun-loving plants will get leggy and bloom less in shaded locations. Shade-loving plants will get scorched in full sun. We have some easy tips to help you decide if you need a Sun sPOT or a Shade sPOT.

Are the edible sPOTS organic?

We add only organic fertilizer to our Edible sPOTS and we do not use pesticides. However, our top quality plants and planting mix come from a variety of vendors and, at this time, we cannot guarantee an all organic product.

Are the plants toxic to people or pets?

Many plants contain toxins. Even if one part of a plant is edible, another part may make people or pets ill. Some of these plants are so common that you do not suspect their toxic qualities. For example, tomatoes are delicious and healthy but tomato leaves and flowers contain harmful compounds and should not be eaten. We recommend preventing children and pets from eating anything from your plants without supervision.

How soon can you deliver my new Garden sPOT?
