Heirloom Seed Collection

1

Heirlooms are seed varieties that have been passed down for generations through farmers, gardeners, families and communities. They are open pollinated seeds, grown and saved carefully for many decades, even centuries. Growing heirloom seeds offers a historical connection to the food you grow and eat while helping support the diversity of the seeds we have left so they can be here for future generations of gardeners and farmers.

 A collection to introduce new and long time gardeners to the joys of heirloom seeds!

From their wild origins to domestication, seeds spread throughout the world as we explored beyond our homes, countries, and continents. The diversity of vegetables we grow in our gardens today was created by farmers from around the globe who developed their distinct varieties by breeding and selecting vegetables that adapted to their needs and specific environments. Heirlooms are seed varieties that have been passed down for generations through farmers, gardeners,families, and communities. They are open-pollinated seeds, grown
and saved carefully for many decades, even centuries and carry the same genetics as their parent plants.This rich and wonderful diversity of seeds developed by farmers over thousands of years disappeared rapidly as we moved through the 20th century. An abundant amount of vegetable and fruit varieties that were once grown 200-300 years ago have disappeared from
gardens forever but all is not lost, in the last 30 years the exchange of heirloom seeds has increased the varieties available to home gardeners. Growing heirloom seeds offers a historical connection to the food you grow and eat while helping support the diversity of the seeds we have left so they can be here for future generations of gardeners and farmers.

    ideal gift!

    I've bought this as a christmas gift for my boyfriend's mom for the 3rd year in a row now and it is perfect. Greatest hits- its like a little gift basket of seeds, which every gardener appreciates! It always ships quickly, is affordable, comes in a cute little box, and can be ordered well in advance. Thanks pinetree!!!
