We’ve all been there: You go to your local nursery to pick healthy seedlings, choose a lush-looking plant with some nice flowers on it, and bring it home . . . only to have it die on you a few days or weeks later.
What on earth did you do wrong in this scenario? And how can you improve your odds for success next go-round?

The Grow Network is a global network of people who produce their own food and medicine. We’re the coolest bunch of backyard researchers on Earth! We’re constantly sharing, discovering, and working together to test new paths for sustainable living—while reconnecting with the “old ways” that are slipping away in our modern world. We value soil, water, sunlight, simplicity, sustainability, usefulness, and freedom. We strive to produce, prepare, and preserve our own food and medicine, and we hope you do, too!
