Best of all, none of our seed lines are GMO! And once you pick your seed brand and varieties, use these next helpful tips to produce a successful garden:

  • Create a planting schedule and shopping list before buying seed packets! Knowing ahead of time which flowers, vegetables or herbs you want to plant will help you plan out the right amount of garden space you need.

  • Always look at the “days of maturity” on the back of most seed packets to make sure you’ll be on schedule.

  • Start a gardening journal. This way you can track which seeds have germinated faster or slower than the others, which seed varieties are more or less resistant to pests and insects, and potentially which plants need even more space!

  • Save your seeds for the next planting cycle. Typically this is only best with what are called open-pollinated varieties (aka Heirloom seeds) rather than hybrid seed varieties as hybrids can be sterile or unpredictable in a later planting season.
