Ever wondered if you can save your own seeds from the veggies, herbs and flowers you grow? The best candidates are known as Open Pollinated, meaning the selection does not require two different parent plants to yield offspring with characteristics closely resembling the plant you harvested from (vs. hybrids, which do require two distinct parents to yield predictable offspring).
Heirloom seeds are older varieties that typically have been maintained by regional growers, and selected for qualities such as flavour or the ability to thrive under specific growing conditions (such as short seasons). Heirloom seeds usually pre-date modern hybrids and are by nature open-pollinated.
We have tried to ensure all of our heirloom and open-pollinated seeds display in this collection, but we certainly may have missed a few... hopefully this points you in the right direction!
