As an extra service for the shop’s many customers, the Royal Queen Seeds Store has now decided to start selling its entire assortment online, as well. The easy-to-use website presents all the products available in the shop for online sales.

The Royal Queen Seeds Store opened in the heart of Amsterdam a few years ago – a small but highly-specialised shop that has been full ever since it opened, not just because of its excellent location but also thanks to the varied and high-quality product assortment, not to mention its affordable prices. Having seen thousands of visitors and foreign tourists pass through its doors, the Royal Queen Seeds Store has become a point of reference for growers from all over Europe.

How to reach us? Turn from Dam Square towards the Hotel Krasnapolsky, walk along the Damstraat (the shopping street to the right of the hotel) until you reach the first bridge, direction “de Wallen”. You’ll see the shop to your right, just before the bridge – which means you’ve made it!

DAMSTRAAT: RQS FIRST SHOP, A MUST-SEE STOP

The Royal Queen Seeds Store is truly a must-see stop for seed buyers from all over the world. If you happen to be in the area, stop by for a visit and to chat with the qualified salespeople, one of whom speaks five languages! The European Seed Bank is not only the easiest seed shop to find in all Amsterdam. it is also definitely the most affordable.

The shop’s menu is perfect for its international vision. Due to their ever-growing popularity, feminized seeds are the most frequent item on the menu. Royal Queen Seeds, the shop’s own brand of seeds, are the most important and convenient on the market. You will, of course, also find well-known varieties such as White Widow and Northern Lights, but also the Spanish success, Critical, or the more traditional Dutch Amnesia Haze.

The Royal Queen Seeds Store assortment also includes seeds from the most renowned and appreciated Dutch brands, such as Sensi Seeds, Serious Seeds, High Quality Seeds, Black Label, Paradise Seeds and, of course, Dutch Passion. The shop has also decided to add a couple of excellent international colleagues to its selection, which means that Kannabia seeds (Spain) and the special Joint Doctor autoflowering Lowryders (also feminized!) from Italy are now available.

All our seeds are grown, improved, stabilized and feminized by the expert Spanish growers who work exclusively for Royal Queen Seeds!

Late Bloomers And Afterthoughts: Starting Outdoor Grows Later In The Season

Did you start your outdoor grow project too late? No worries: you can start growing weed outside as late as Juli if you play your cards right. The main drawback is that you’ll have to make do with a shorter flowering stage, since the season is getting along already. That’s bound to result in smaller plants, and therefore, less weed to harvest, but for most growers, a modest outdoor harvest is much better than none at all!

Consider the location and lay-out of your grow spot, such as your garden for instance. South or west-facing gardens catch the most daily sunlight. Do check for nearby trees, shrubs, and buildings that cast shadows to block the light. Pick a strategic spot that allows your leaves to make the most out of every last sunbeam.

Flowering Stage And Summer Sun

When given the ideal amount of water, the leaves of cannabis plants should be upright during the day. As if they’re holding their little ‘plant-arms’ up to the sky to improve their intake of precious sunlight. At night, the leaves come down and hang towards the ground. If the leaves hang like that during the day, you are either giving too much water to your plants or not giving enough. Simply feeling the soil or substrate with your fingers should provide clarity on that matter. Have a look at our watering grow blog for more information about perfect watering techniques.

Since cannabis is illegal in most countries, clones are usually hard to find. Luckily our cannabis seeds travel far and reach even the most remote places. You can order world-class genetics for your home grow from the comfort of your own home and get that Love From Amsterdam in the mail, just like that. Not sure which seeds to pick? Our info on Feminized seeds, Autoflower seeds, and Sativa or Indica strains will help you choose. So, with the seeds part sorted, let’s move on to the other elements you’ll need to start growing.

Growing your own cannabis is easy, after all it’s called ‘weed’ for a reason. In fact, cannabis plants – depending on the endurance of individual strains – can handle more hardship than most plants in your backyard. This durability actually makes them hard to get rid of, much like regular ‘weeds’. Of course, you can ruin a grow if you want to, but if you know a few basic facts, you should be alright. Ironically, most of the classic screwups are caused by caring too much for the plant. So, in theory everybody is able to grow their own cannabis. The only things you need to grow your own usable crop are:

On June 21, the Northern Hemisphere enjoys the longest day of the year. After this ‘summer solstice’, the days gradually get shorter as we (sadly) start to prepare for autumn. Rather than growing even taller, cannabis plants now enter the flowering stage. This is when female plants start to develop the flowers growers love to harvest. How long a given strain flowers before she’s ready to harvest depends on the individual strain. Still, in temperate climate zones such as those of Northern Europe, it’s important to finish flowering before the cold and wet autumn weather sets in; preferably before October arrives. This explains why May is the perfect time to get your germinated seedlings out into the spring sunshine.
