This page gives instructions on how to buy three sisters garden seeds from David's Garden Seeds.
The Three Sisters Garden Seeds Package consists of Kentucky Wonder pole bean, Tennessee Red Cob corn, and Seminole pumpkin.
Native Americans have been companion planting the Three Sisters (squash, corn, and pole beans) for thousands of years. A well-maintained Three Sisters garden is both beautiful and productive. The corn provides a tall stalk for the beans to climb. The transpiration from the corn leaves provides mild cooling for the beans. The beans, in turn, have the amazing ability to fix nitrogen from the atmosphere, helping to compensate for the large amount of nitrogen that corn needs. (Note though that the nitrogen won't be available to the corn this year!)
The squash serves to provide a living mulch, suppressing weeds and keeping the hot summer sun from baking the earth dry. In addition to being a functional, productive system, a Three Sisters garden is beautiful. The circular yet directional pattern provides a calming space to work in. The bean flowers draping from the corn leaves seem to dance over the large squash leaves. The squash and bean flowers are heavily visited by pollinating insects. Included is enough seeds for corn (Tennessee Red Cob), beans (Kentucky Wonder), and squash (Seminole pumpkin) to plant a 25' circular Three Sisters garden. Pole Beans 90 seeds Corn 110 seeds Pumpkin 30 seeds.
