Seeds

Most of our seeds come from Johnnys Selected Seeds. They are great to work with, always more than happy to share there extensive knowledge base. They sell a wide variety of seeds, usually available untreated and organic. Their extensive line of pelleted seeds is always a plus.


High Mowing Seeds
 is the largest Certified Organic seed company in the US. As we switch more and more to organic seed, they have been helpful in making that transition.

When the two above companies don’t carry something, or we’re looking for a specialty variety, we will turn to some of the below companies.

Wild Garden Seeds
Osborne Seeds
Territorial Seeds
Gourmet Seed Company
