DOWN TO EARTH HEIRLOOM SEED KITS!
Heirloom Seeds have been grown and cherished by gardeners for years. They are not varieties that are here today and gone tomorrow. Heirlooms are varieties that have stood the test of time. Fresh, succulent taste, excellent storage properties, beautiful color and appearance, good for preserving, reproducing seed true to type, are just a few qualities of the Heirloom Seed! Because heirlooms have stood the test of time, they have also survived pests and diseases. Growing and saving heirloom seed is participating in preserving a piece of history. Many of the heirlooms have been carried with immigrants, beloved and cherished because they were special, reminding them of the tastes of home. They were preserved, passed down through the years from one generation to the next.
