Landscaping Organically – from roots to harvest in your garden

Landscaping Organically – from roots to harvest in your garden

Time to grow! Grow up already we say. 

But in the garden that can be daunting. Hopefully you have at least a handful of pots or planters handy to grow tasty strawberries or herbs this season. Maybe you are fortunate enough to expand into the garden, front or back, and can enjoy the riches the earth has to offer.

 

 

Growing home grown vegetables is one of life’s great privileges. The earth provides us with such nourishment.
We applaud every little growing green thumb!

 

If your thumb is not so green, have no fear Roots To Harvest Landscaping is here. We can help you leave the vast, green lawn far behind. We can also navigate through the jungles of your own overgrown, at once ambitious, but then forgotten, garden project.

If you need a little (or a lot of help) just call 416-347-5449  or email info@rootstoharvest.com

See you soon! Happy growing. May you have a most bountiful harvest.

Growing up Salads

Growing up salads starts with healthy roots.

Every little sprout needs to open up into a warmed, nutrient rich environment to give it strength to grow. Sunflower shoots that become microgreens offer the best of flavour, greens, health, nutrients, and fun variety into your salads.

The strong, healthy roots growing here create a strong matting that can easily be lifted off the growing tray.

We love colours too.

After we put together fresh, organic shoots and sprouts, we toss them up with the best combinations of colour we can think off. Yes, eating with a rainbow of vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouts is definitely the way to health.

Elusive Cooler, Hot on the Move

After careful selection of seed sprouts (we chose certified organic brassicas and sunflower seeds to start), deliberation of labels, and Eco Friendly biodegradable, compostable plastic take away sprout packages, we finally put together our first offerings of sprouts!
Went to pick up the fridge the sprouts will call their temporary home until they get to yours, and alas, fridge was not ready.

Soooo, where’s the fridge?

Stand by, as we hunt down the elusive cooler, hot on the move.
