Their desire for more information—along with their passion for spreading gardening wisdom—led them to create a unique seed packet that is not only beautiful, but is also filled with facts, tips, recipes and quality seeds. Not only are the seeds inside their packets the highest quality available, the packets are designed to give you the information you need to be a more successful gardener!
