What began as a fledgling passion for the unique flowers from our horticultural past and a desire to share this love with gardeners is now 31 years old! The simple pleasures of a handful of sweet and spicy nasturtiums in a vase, of honey-scented sweet peas gathered at their peak of dewy freshness, the joy of discovery as a new favorite annual flower unfolds before you, the feeling of community as we share our bounty of freshly gathered cut flowers, organic vegetables and hand gathered seeds-this promise of summer resides in a packet of seeds or a young plant ready to grow!
The first catalog was a thin black and white leaflet with antique varieties of perennial seeds. The first year I had about 50 orders in total, all from a little classified ad in the back pages of a gardening magazine!
Today, we offer a curated collection of plants and seeds of the best varieties of annuals, tender perennials and perennials, including many heirlooms and "best in class" new varieties. It will continue to evolve and grow in time, I'm sure, but I'm equally sure it will always celebrate family, farm and flowers.
