Celebrating 40 years of serving the home gardener!
Located in rural Maine, we are a family owned and operated business. Operating since 1979, Pinetree Garden Seeds was founded with the simple mission of offering low prices on quality seeds to the home gardener.
As one of the few seed suppliers selling non-GMO, heirloom seeds in people-sized packets, we hear a lot about the seasonal struggles of home gardeners, and we sympathize. And over the years, we have developed some sound strategies that help us keep up (and stay sane) during the height of harvest season.
As one of the few seed sellers to offer non-GMO hybrid, organic and heirloom seeds in smaller quantities at affordable prices—often just a couple of dollars each—Pinetree Garden Seeds is one of the biggest boosters of backyard gardening. So many of our customers have changed their lives for the better by taking up gardening. We hope the list below inspires you to give gardening a go.
All around the Pinetree Garden Seed headquarters in rural Maine, we are already seeing sparks of red and yellow here and there among the trees. Cold weather comes earlier this far north and while we still have a lot of summer weather ahead, we have started getting ready to wind down some of our beds. In other zones, you may have months before your plot goes dormant but when it does, the to-do list below will help you take care and prepare for next spring!
At Pinetree Garden Seeds, we know that making non-GMO, hybrid, organic, and heirloom seeds super-affordable doesn’t always make them accessible. That’s why we give away thousands—that’s right!—thousands of our exceptional, high-quality seeds and seedlings to deserving organizations here in our home state of Maine and across the country each year. Over our 40-year history, that adds up to millions of magical seeds that are making a difference for so many people. And what have those seeds grown into? Read on to find out!
