Pumpkin Seeds offers healthy, homegrown plants to adorn their gardens and planters and enrich their dining experiences. We specialize in heirloom and unusual varieties of vegetable, annual and perennial flowers, herbs, houseplants and native North American wildflowers. All our plants, including the wildflowers, have been started at home from seed, or propagated from our own established garden plants. We offer varieties we have found to be flavorful, reliable, and easy to grow, and flowering plants that are not commonly found at garden stores. We believe that the healthiest and most productive gardens are balanced ecosystems in themselves, and therefore offer many plants that attract a variety of beneficial pollinators and pest-fighting "good bugs" to the garden. You will also find plants that feed the soil, or that feed the birds; others improve the growth of companion plants. All add color, flavor, fragrance or interest to the garden- and maybe a bit of nostalgia, as we often offer old-fashioned flowers that grew in grandmother's garden!
