  • Heirloom seeds

    http://orchardhouse heirlooms. com/product_ info.php/ products_ id/199


    all heirlooms, fresh-packed regular varieties sold by this company, each pack of seeds in a small ziplock baggie each with full instructions and plant identification, All packed in Mylar ready to keep for the future when Monsanto has successfully outlawed any heirloom seeds in their quest to corner the seed market, making nearly every plant a dreaded GMO- our food mixed with other plant, animal and even human DNA. I am doing all I can to keep my family healthy in a world full of unhealthy foods.

    There is even an extra bonus pack included.

    Thx, Unswydd. I was looking over my seeds yesterday and realized I have no Cumin or Coriander. Must fix that.

      (cleaned up the link, I hope!)

      I know seeds degrade over time, would these last longer packed in the mylar? I mean, unlike food, I would be less likely to use these until modern seedlings/seeds were unavailable? 10 years possible?

        Would assume so, there is a site selling an already-sealed-in-mylar-and-PVC group of seeds with an advertised shelf life of over a decade.

          I planted Peas, green beans and Squash from this #10, It is loaded with enough seed to plant a Basket Ball Court. 2001 pkg. The seeds are vacume sealed in a mylar type "film-foil" pkg with a paper side. I don't have that much space so I just planted what I could use. All of them came up and are doing well. I need to find out how to preserve some though when they start bearing.

            Thanks pathfinder... interested to know what kind of yield you get compared to the normal hybrid fare... I planted an heirloom tomato, as well as the standard hybrid producers (better boy, parks, celebrity)... the hybrids, as expected, are outperforming the heirloom. Point being, if we ever need to rely on the heirlooms, we would need to adjust garden size for the possibility of the lesser yields of heirloom varieties.

              Thanks hub for cleaning up that link for me. Sorry about that. The reason for the mylar is that it provides a protective layer to keep them viable,keeps out excess moisture and to help them last over time. I wouldn't be suprised if they did last for 10 years. That might be stretching it some tho.
              I found another great site. check it out!!!!

                Okay, stupid question, does anyone have any seeds they want to sell? I've been looking at them from online stores and heirlooms tend to be expensive
