Like treasured jewelry or furniture that has been handed down through the family, heirloom seeds have been passed on through generations of gardeners and often hold interesting stories. While there is no industry standard on what defines an heirloom, it is generally agreed that it must be an open-pollinated variety, meaning the seeds can be saved and grow “true”, nearly identical to the parent plant. Botanical Interests considers open-pollinated varieties over 50 years old to be heirlooms. We love researching the history of our varieties so we can pass on the heirloom vegetable seeds and their stories to you and your garden, keeping them alive and adding future generations to their story.
At Botanical Interests, our goal is to inspire and educate the gardener in you. That is why, since 1995 we have been supplying gardeners with the highest quality seed in the most beautiful and informative seed packets on the market. Curtis and Judy started Botanical Interests because they believed that gardeners were not getting the information they needed on seed packets. Their desire to provide more information led them to create a unique seed packet that includes art, garden history, landscape ideas, organic gardening know-how, recipes, fun facts, and of course, high-quality seed.
