In short, our collection represents the highest quality seed available for your kitchen garden. We do not sell treated seed nor genetically modified seed. We adhere to the tenets of the "Safe Seed Pledge".

We can not be held responsible for any crop losses due to: weather conditions, improper storage conditions, improper site conditions, improper climate plantings or for any costs other than the actual cost of the seeds. We do not make substitutions. In the event that a variety is sold out or unavailable for horticultural
reasons, we will contact you as soon as possible so
that you may make an alternate selection.
Our Seed Packets
Each of our seed packet contains planting and horticultural information
including: planting depth, row spacing, seed spacing, days to germination,
ideal germination temperatures and estimated days to maturity. Horticultural
care and use tips are provided as well. Average seed life ranges from one to
three years and is specified by variety on each seed packet. Prior to use,
seed packets should be stored in a dry spot, away from direct sunlight and
in a temperature range of 65ºF to 75ºF.
The Safe Seed Pledge
"Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and, ultimately, people and communities."
