Seed Information

Not only does living, nutrient rich soil contributes to abundant harvests, so does the seed you plant. Many different kinds of seeds are available. Native Seeds has published the Seed Buyer’s Guide to help you navigate the many kinds of seed you’re likely to encounter.

The following are their recommendations.

BEST Choices

Your own saved seeds, locally grown seeds that are open-pollinated, non-hybrid, heirloom, organic, certified naturally grown, and wild-crafted.

GOOD Alternatives

Regionally grown seeds that are open-pollinated, non-hybrid, heirloom, organic, certified naturally grown, and wild-crafted, and organic hybrid seeds.

AVOID the Following

Industrial (F-1) hybrid seeds, treated seeds, GMO Seeds, “Big Box” seed rack seeds, industrially-produced “one size-fits-all” seeds from large corporate seed companies.
