SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Today is June 5, 2021.  We have been listening to our friends and we are changing over to Shopify.  Our website will be a lot easier to understand, navigate and purchase from. As we sat listening and looking at the update last Friday, we wondered why we had not done this sooner.  I believe it will be up and running in about two more weeks.

We are going to dedicate this website to our doomsday information.

Our About Us Page gives you some background information on how and why David's Garden Seeds® was created.

David loves to garden. He grew up gardening, both here in San Antonio and out in the Texas Hill Country town of Leakey.  As a teenager, David had to work in the garden everyday, or at least it seemed like everyday, with the Texas heat beating down on him. When he left home, he made a promise to himself that he would never set foot in a garden again. Today he spends every minute he can in the garden.

In September of 78, he joined the Army, saw what he could of the world, got out of the Army, got married and has grown a garden every year. That was almost 32 years ago and he is still growing gardens every spring and fall in San Antonio, Texas.

About 16 years ago, David went to the Middle East as a civilian contractor and worked several jobs during the Second Gulf War. He worked in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan. When he returned home, he could not find a decent job to support his family.

This Company is Veteran Owned!

David's Garden Seeds® is owned by a United States Veteran.  David Schulze, founder and owner, proudly served our country for eight years in the United States Army and then he served an additional five years working as a civilian in Iraq and Afghanistan with the United States Military. David started the business in 2009, after returning from the Middle East.

In September of 2009, he started David's Garden Seeds® because gardening is his favorite hobby. He started by selling some of his favorite seeds, all vegetables on Amazon. Once it took off, he added more and more veggies, some fruit seeds, herb seeds and flower seeds. The company was started out of our home. Over time, David added valued team mates to help him with building the company. His wife, Juanita, helped every evening after getting home from her job.

In November of 2015, David's Garden Seeds was relocated to 7717 Tezel Road as the business had outgrown the house. On February 29, 2016, Juanita quit her day job and joined the team full time.

In May of 2018, the business moved next door to 7717 Tezel Road because David's Garden Seeds® needed more room to operate. We are currently in our tenth year of business and we are having a lot of fun helping families learn how to grow their own food.

In July of 2019, David and Juanita bought four acres of land and moved the company out to it.  You can read all about this at Country Mini Farm.  We are excited about this since we will be growing our vegetables and canning them.

Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's performance.
