Really local sources for seeds

“It was on the wings of seeds that Thoreau sailed home, where he found peace…” ~ Gary Nabham in Faith in a Seed (1993) about Henry David Thoreau’s last years studying seeds

Happy New Year! In Sunday’s column (Jan. 8, 2018),

I shared 10 Considerations about Seeds, some of which Thoreau would never have imagined when he was scribbling down notes about seeds and seed dispersal in 1860.

Here are the first four considerations again: 1. Are the seeds grown/harvested locally? 2. Are the seeds heirloom? 3. Are the seeds from plants native to our region? 4. Are the seeds organic?

The three local sources below address these four considerations by providing Rogue Valley gardeners with a variety of vegetable, herb and flower seeds that are certified organic and open-pollinated. You’ll find several heirloom varieties offered by Restoration and Siskiyou seeds, and you’ll be amazed at the wide selection of native wildflowers available at Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds.

One of your New Year’s goals might be to grow your first wildflower garden! Now’s the time to plan your garden and support our local farmers.
