Welcome to the Garden Shop
Hi, my name is Kris Benge. I have been a home gardener for over 25 years and enjoy growing a wide variety of different vegetables including rare heirlooms and unique hybrids. For years, I've been starting my own seeds and sharing the extra seedlings with friends and family. In 2021, I decided to take it to the next level, start a small business around my love of gardening, and Grow Veggie Plants was born!
My passion is helping others to become successful gardeners. Whether you are a first-time grower or a seasoned vet, there is always something to learn. Gardening is about trying new things and finding joy when we see our plants thrive. It's also about trial and error and if we fail, we can always try something different next year! I enjoy sharing my experiences and researching to learn new things, especially if they can help others find success.
As a business, I offer vegetable plant starts, seeds, and supplies for sale to my local area of Pleasant Hill, Iowa. I am also able to ship seeds and most garden supplies to anywhere in the US.
My plants have been started from seed and nurtured in my home. Seeds and garden supplies have been carefully sourced to ensure only the best quality, so you can shop with confidence. My goal is to earn your business by offering everything you need to start and grow a successful vegetable garden!
A portion of the website is dedicated to providing useful information about how to grow veggies, whether in the ground, containers, or raised beds. I also write and post helpful articles on my blog, so check back often for updates!
Join our Grow Veggie Plants Gardeners Group on Facebook. Over time, I hope to build a thriving online community of passionate gardeners who can share their ideas and experiences with one another. Together we can garden with purpose!
