A family owned and operated business since 1979, Pinetree Garden Seeds was founded with the simple mission of offering low prices on quality seeds to the home gardener. Over the years offerings have expanded to include over 1300 varieties of seeds, including many Heirlooms & Organics, a huge assortment of tools and gardening gear, books, live plants, and soap making/crafting supplies.
DEAR GARDENING FRIENDS,
Welcome to the 2015 gardening season! This was an exceptional year for our trial gardens, truly abundant, and we have added over 50 new varieties, so you are sure to find something exciting inside! We are particularly excited about our new organic tomato lines, the Indigo Series and selections from Wild Boar Farms, unique offerings that bring us to over 80 tomato choices. We are thrilled to share with you our new organics line, and look forward to offering even more selections this year and next. Also new this year— we have combined our seed and live plant sections so you will find all vegetables and flowers in alphabetical order throughout. Be sure to check out our expanded crafts section, homemade cosmetics and wonderful knitting supplies.
Our illustrious crew has spent much of this summer packing all our seeds by hand and have been busy planning new ways to offer faster order processing and fulfillment. Energized and enthusiastic as we enter our 36th year in business, we are ready to help make your 2015 garden the best yet!
Melissa, Jef, and Ellis
Signers of the SAFE SEED PLEDGE
Proud to support sustainable agriculture, Pinetree has never sold any genetically modified seeds and has signed the Safe Seed Pledge, promising never to sell any GMO seeds. We have pledged our support to local efforts to label GMO foods and strive to offer an extensive selection of heirloom seeds in an effort to support the ideals of responsible and organic gardening practices.
“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 healthy people and communities.”
