Livingston Seeds

Planting seed potatoes at the right time is important. Seed potatoes growing in soil that is too cold and wet may rot while potatoes that grow in soil that is too warm, may not produce well. It is best to plant seed potatoes after the chance of hard frost has past, but while you are still experiencing light frosts.

We carry 3 varieties; Kennebec, Red Pontiac,

and Yukon Gold.

Asparagus_edited.jpg

Asparagus is a popular vegetable crop that can be successfully grown in Ohio gardens. A desirable
aspect of asparagus culture is that annual panting is not required because once the crop is fully establishes (3 yrs), it can be productive for 12-15 year or more!

We carry Jersey Giant, Purple Passion and Mary Washington.

Onions are a cold-season crop, easy to grow because of their hardiness. One option is to use onion sets, which can be planted without worry of frost damage and have a higher success rate than direct seed or transplants. This year we have red, white, and yellow onion sets.

FRUITS

BERRIES

Blackberry Triple Crown
Blackberry Triple Crown

‘Triple Crown’ is a new Blackberry that will bear consistent huge fruit yields year after year. Fruits ripen to a juicy sweet flavor; over a 5-week period you can harvest and enjoy eating the large black beauties every day for over 30 days. The plant is semi-erect and thornless and bears large, flavorful fruit. These strong canes can support many pounds of fruit without trellising. ‘Triple Crown’ would be a good choice to help extend the blackberry season for home gardeners.

Raspberry Latham
Raspberry Latham

This reliable favorite Junebearer ripens mid-season and is long harvesting. Vigorous, productive canes and excellent fruit with a sweet flavor make this a garden favorite. ‘Latham’ red berries are large, firm and attractive. Most popular variety; ripens in late June, cold hardy. Cut spent canes to the ground after they finish fruiting.

Concord grapes
Concord grapes

The old favorite blue-black grape that has been around for generations, but without those pesky seeds. Concord Seedless, though similar in flavor and texture to Concord, is unrelated. The clusters and berries are much smaller than those of Concord. The fruit matures earlier, has high flavor, and makes excellent pies and preserves. It is also the easiest for the home gardener to grow.
