Garden Medicinals and Culinaries specializes in open-pollinated (non-hybrid) seeds and plants. In addition to medicinal and culinary herbs, we also offer select ethnic and heirloom varieties of vegetables and flowers.
Unlike many seed companies, we grow much of our own seed, and have bred several varieties of vegetables and flowers which have achieved national distribution. All of our seed is untreated, some certified organic, and much is ecologically grown by natural methods. We do extensive germination testing, and most seed packets are labeled with the latest test results.
We believe that seeds should remain in the public domain, and therefore we do not offer hybrid seed, patented seed, or genetically-modified seed or plants. Because gardeners should be encouraged to save their own seed, we promote seed saving and offer seed-saving supplies such as silica gel and containers for storing seed.
As much as possible, our seed gardens are modeled to mimic natural ecosystems by creating and maintaining diversity. This practice greatly reduces potential pest and disease problems, and encourages the growth of beneficial organisms. Our soil is carefully maintained using natural rock powders, compost, and other organic materials in order to produce the best possible seed.
We welcome you to browse our online catalog and to try our seeds. Your seed order will include a six-page seed growing guide and a two-page herb germination chart, and if you order vegetable seed you'll also receive a planting calendar. We look forward to becoming your source for quality seed and service.
