These are all seed companies that we as home gardeners have used with happy results over the last 15+ years.
Fruition Seed Company is one of my favorite seed companies for a lot of reasons, one of them is silly, I LOVE the name, but really I just like the heirloom varieties, the germination rate, the company ethics/community values and the fact that they provide so much FREE information on how to grow their seeds! If you are in the upstate NY area you can visit the farm and save shipping cost on your seeds and starts 😉
Neil Diboll is the President of this company and he is really just a wonderful man. I ordered from them recently by accident looking for another similar(also great) company. Neil took the time twice to have a very lengthy conversation with me and shared beautiful stories about an inspiring woman Lorrie Otto. They are a company that is very involved in the community around them!
Great source for Native Seeds
