Update on the SARS-CoV2/COVID-19 coronovirus

March 16, 2020

To the Plant and Seguin Gardens & Gifts community:

In an effort to protect our customers, our employees and our clients, Seguin Gardens & Gifts will be closing as of this Wednesday, March 18th.  The store will not open until at least Monday, March 30th.

Because the novel coronovirus/COVID-19 situation continues to rapidly evolve, these plans may change.  If they do, we will let you know.

During this time, we will continue to have staff maintaining the greenhouse and plants, as well as maintaining the website and any online sales. 

We can be contacted by email or through the website, www.seguingardens.com.  We will also be checking voicemail, although that will be less regular, so email or the website is preferable.

You may contact the General Manager, Darrel Wood, at dwood@ucpseguin.org or the Sr. Director of Seguin Enterprise, Julie Lerch, at jlerch@seguin.org 

We thank you all for your continued support through the years, and through this difficult time.  Take care of yourselves and others, and we will see you soon.


The Team at Seguin Gardens & Gifts

Microgreens & Baby Greens Growing Guide

March 24, 2020

Micro- and baby greens are tiny, tender, flavorful seedlings of vegetables and/or herbs. Microgreens may be harvested for their youngest leaves, while baby greens are harvested at 2"–4". Both pack a big punch when it comes to nutrients. Studies show they can be up to 40 times richer in vital nutrients than their mature counterparts.

Microgreens and baby greens are not just for chef-inspired plates anymore—these nutrient powerhouses can grow right on your windowsill.
