While Seasons in Bed-Stuy had a slow start to the year, sales have picked up as more and more people get cabin fever. 
Owner Deborah Young says she likes to educate her customers and has been running the greenhouse on Stuyvesant Avenue for eight years. 
"Whether it took water, or whatever, not supposed to take water, how long it's supposed to last. she's very informational when it comes to all of the things she sells,” said Young. 
Her seasonal business typically opens around Easter, but this year there was a lot of uncertainty. 
Young opened earlier than usual in March but says there was an issue with stock.

"Manufacturing shut down in Pennsylvania so I couldn't get pots. I couldn't get soil that I ordered last year at a trade show that was supposed to show up. A number of things I just could not get,” said Young. 
To maintain social distancing, the greenhouse is currently limited to three people at a time while the outdoor space is limited to five. 
However, she says she has noticed a new crop of clients. "People with children that need projects for kids. so we sell seeds and seed starter kits so that was good for them. I also give away bubbles, which I've always done here,” said Young. 
She says she realized that some regulars haven’t come back due to a loss of income. Young says she is planning to open a second location right here in Bed-Stuy. 
She's not ready to name the location but tells News 12  it will be more of an indoor plant boutique.
