We have several seed types available here at David's Garden Seeds®.

 Below you will find brief descriptions of each type of seed.

Heirloom Seeds

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.

Organic Seeds

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

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

Hybrid seeds refer to seeds where the breeder has taken characteristics of different attributes of plants of the same family and combined them to make a plant that grows better, has 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 Seeds

We do not sell GMO 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.

No Cheap Seeds

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.

Germination Rate

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.
