No More Guesswork or Stress…
Now there’s an easier way to grow seedlings that thrive

Hi there, I am Marion!

I’ve been gardening for decades which means I’ve pulled my hair out more than a few seasons wondering what I did wrong. And yes, I’ve returned to the nursery to buy replacement plants more times than I’d like to admit…

I knew there had to be a better, easier way to grow seedlings without all the guesswork and stress. So I spent 10 years experimenting with starting seeds, talking with experts, trying new techniques, and letting go of all of the standard gardening “rules” that just didn’t work…

Bit by proven bit, I crafted the 'Seed-Starting Secrets' workshop around my High-Five method to clear up all the confusing and conflicting information out there. 

I’ve found this High-Five Method is the most effective way to help all gardeners repeatedly and successfully raise a family of plants without pulling their hair out or sneaking back to the nursery (like me!) to buy replacement plants…

For over 30 years, I've helped gardeners around the world through my classes, weekly organic gardening column, and international conferences as a keynote speaker and workshop presenter.

My photographs have been featured by the Nature Conservancy, Reader's Digest, and The Smithsonian. I also co-authored Chicken Soup for the Gardener's Soul, which spent 3 happy months on The New York Times bestseller list.

Gardeners deserve a tried-and-true method for starting seeds that actually works. Seed-Starting Secrets follows my proven, no-nonsense "High-Five" method that I developed after years of experience and trial and error and it’s going to give you the garden of your dreams. No confusion, no stress, no guesswork. Just beautiful, thriving seedlings that mature into beautiful, thriving plants in your garden.

For just minutes a day, your seedlings will be stout and strong and ready for transplanting.

Learn everything you need to raise strong seedlings with complete confidence following my proven High-Five Method. Your plants will not only survive, they will thrive when you transplanted into your garden.

Why start your own seeds? Here are 6 reasons why learning about seed-starting from Marion Owen will change your life:

  1. Earlier harvest: Get a jump on the growing season and put fresh food on the table sooner when you grow tomato, cabbage, and lettuce seedlings indoors for setting out when the weather mellows. The SOONER you can harvest the GREATER your overall yield for the season. 
  2. Greater variety: Here's the thing: The varieties of plants offered by commercial growers can be impressive. But it's only a tiny slice of what's available to you. For example, if you want to grow an heirloom tomato that's resistant to fusarium wilt, tolerates your special growing situation, and cooks up to a rich paste of high nutritional value, you'll have to start those from seed.
  3. Stronger, healthier seedlings:  SUPER SEEDLINGS! if you do all the right things at the right times, your plants will have well-developed roots in good soil that has not been pumped up with chemicals. Which means when you transplant them outside, they will not only survive, but THRIVE in their new home... all the way to harvest time. 
  4. Save money: Well, maybe! It's true that for the price of a dozen tomato plants, you can buy a bunch of seed packets. Thing is, there are so many choices of seeds you might find yourself trying new varieties. In essence, putting your saved money back into more seeds! It's like a quilter with a fabric addition!
  5. Food security:  There was a time when empty shelves at the grocery store might have been an isolated incident. But food security is fast becoming a household word thanks to extreme weather affecting crops, supply chain hiccups, and widespread use of chemicals.

Best of all - The Happiness Factor: There's nothing like raising your own cucumbers all the way from seed plate. And let's not forget that planting seeds indoors is a great cure for the winter blues. Being around green growing things is a mental health boost. And kids learn where real food comes from.

Besides, plants, like pets, don't care if you're having a bad hair day!

Thirty-five years ago, Marion was like you, a frustrated gardener!

Marion had a passion for gardening. But she had no idea what she was doing. Back then, there was no YouTube and no internet.

Sometimes she was lucky and her efforts were rewarded. Most of the time though, she felt discouraged and frustrated. Because of the mistakes she made, the hours wasted, and the money lost, she nearly gave up.

As the years went by, Marion managed to develop a green thumb. Now, three decades later, she writes a weekly garden column. and has been been featured in Better Homes & GardensReader's Digest and Organic Gardening.

Marion even wrote a New York Times bestseller, "Chicken Soup for the Gardener's Soul", which has inspired thousands of gardeners around the globe.

Having felt the frustration that only beginners know, she decided that my legacy would be to help other like-minded gardeners fast-track their journey to gardening success!

Marion has spent decades teaching gardeners like you. Her students are happy to share their success:

Clint M., Calgary, AB

"This was money well spent. For 20+ years I wasted my time composting.

"It took six months to make a batch of compost that made little difference to our garden anyway. 

"I now understand what actually happens in a compost heap and I have a whole new level of enthusiasm for gardening."
