About our Plants
We source our seeds from companies that are committed to Non-GMO policies. Many of the varieties are open pollinated, heirlooms. We have also included some hybrids that have excellent disease resistance in our area.
Our plants are grown in a mineral-rich custom blend of the finest all organic ingredients.
We use soil blocks to reduce the amount of plastic used during the initial stages of growth. As much as possible we we transplant into recycled plastic pots that have been cleaned.
