1911 - 2020
Our 110th Year
NOTE: Although we are in the central California COVID-19 quarantine shelter-in-place area we are considered an "essential service" (agriculture) and can continue to operate normally.
We have no delays in sending your seeds.
The mails are slower than normal to some areas, sometimes taking 10 days to 2 weeks to arrive, even to California addresses.
The Spring Supplement is now online - see New Arrivals below.

Scope and Purpose:
We are a public access seed bank - not a
commercial seed company. You will find that our presentation of information and
how you access our seedbank is a bit different from ordering seeds from the
usual on-line commercial enterprise.
Our purpose is the preservation of botanical biodiversity, the propagation and dissemination of rare, threatened and endangered plants, research into the biology of seeds, and the preservation of vanishing knowledge of the uses of plants - called "ethnobotany" or "ethnobotanical knowledge". To this end, we propagate and distribute rare seeds from every continent; native plants from around the world, including flowers, vines, trees, cacti, culinary herbs, heirloom vegetables, ornamentals, hardy perennials, medicinal plants, and tropicals. We also distribute Gibberellic Acid-3, complete GA-3 kits, and a full line of supplies for priming your seed with this powerful natural germination enhancer. We also distribute many unusual books about edible plants, medicinal plants, American Indian, Australian, and African ethnobotany, books on seed saving, source lists, and more.
Please comment on our website, and suggest any improvements you would like to see.
