Thank you for visiting David's Garden Seeds! We appreciate your visit and hope our website is of value to you whether you are a beginner gardener or you have gardened for many years.
About ten years ago, David came home from working in the Middle East and decided to make a business out of his favorite hobby, gardening. While David began selling seeds online, his wife, Juanita, helped by building the website and putting information about the business on social media. Soon, they were shipping the best quality Non-GMO seeds out to gardeners all over the USA.
Growing vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers is a lot of fun. Homegrown veggies taste a lot better than the ones you find at the grocery store. They cost less (after initial set up) and are healthier. They usually contain more nutrients since they are allowed to ripen on the vine, especially tomatoes. You have not eaten a tomato until you have eaten one that you allowed to vine-ripen on your own tomato plants.
We specialize in growing tomatoes and tomato grafting as well as growing hot pepper plants and seeds.
We have several types of seeds available.
We offer many heirloom seeds from all across the country.
Heirloom seeds are seeds that generally have been around for 75 years or
more. There is no standard for what makes a seed "heirloom" like there
is for what makes it organic.
Some of our seeds have been grown organically. Organically grown seeds means they have been grown without using man-made chemicals. Even though we are not certified as an organic grower (takes lots of time and money), we grow our own products organically.
Open-pollinated seeds are seeds that will reproduce themselves. These are the ones you want to grow to save for future plantings. All heirloom seeds are open-pollinated, but not all open-pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Hybrid seeds refer to seeds where the breeder has taken characteristics of different attributes of the seeds of the same family and combined them to make a plant that grows better, have more disease resistance and so on. Hybrid seeds are not genetically modified organisms (GMO) so you do not need to worry when you see the word "Hybrid" on a package of seeds.
GMO (genetically modified organisms) seeds occur when the breeder has taken different attributes of different families of seeds, thus changing the DNA make-up of the new seed. There is a lot of controversy over whether this is right or not. Currently the only vegetables they have done this with are corn varieties and squash varieties.
All of the seeds at David's Garden Seeds® are Non-GMO seeds.
In fact, David's Garden Seeds® has taken The Safe Seed Pledge.
If you are looking for cheap seeds, THIS IS NOT THAT SITE. We offer premium, fresh seeds that are hand-packed in the United States by our team members. We use highly complex machines in packing our seeds.
Most of our seeds have an 80% or better
germination rate. Where the germination rate is lower it is stated in
the description of the particular seed.
We don't know all there is to know about gardening, but if you contact us with a question, we will answer it to the best of our knowledge. Most questions can be answered by looking on the web.
