To meet the requirements of this BB you need to plant at least 50 of each of the following and verify that at least 12 of them have sprouted:
- apple - plum
In addition, all the perennials you start from seedmust be grown outside and they can't be transplanted. While the wood badge for gardening requires all inputs be from within 500 feet the exception is for seeds. So go a head and find those amazing perennials that will boost your homestead!
Also, remember that to meet the requirements of the wood badge for gardeningall systems are polyculture systems.
Tip: When working on this BB think about the other requirements for the wood badge for gardening and see if you can meet multiple requirements at once. You need to grow, harvest and preserve 1,000,000 calories from at least 30 species. So while direct seeding your perennials picking ones that either support your food crops or ones that are food crops themselves is a great way to move forward towards your straw badge for gardening.
How to Certify That Your BB is Completed
