There are many great reasons to choose heirloom seeds, but here are MY top 5.
- Heirlooms are antiques. They have been around for hundreds of years.
- Heirlooms are open pollinated. This means you can save the seeds from your heirloom plants, replant them again the next year, or give away to your friends to plant.
Backyard gardeners and organic farmers have a wonderful opportunity to keep these seeds alive or they will disappear altogether. This gardening year, be sure you include heirloom seeds in your garden, and "Grow It Forward" for generations to come.
