Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is owned by Jere and Emille Gettle. Their company offers a nice variety of rare and unique herbs, flowers and vegetables from over 70 countries. It has the largest selection of heirloom varieties offered in the Americas.
They strive to promote and preserve our agricultural and culinary heritage.
All of their seeds are non-hybrid, non-GMO, non-patented and non-treated. They do not buy seeds from Monsanto-owned Seminis and also boycott all gene-altering companies. They network with about 150 small farmers, gardeners and seed growers to bring you the best seeds available. Many of the seeds they offer have been collected by their travels abroad.
I ordered from them for the first time last year (maybe even the year before) and was very pleased with their service and can highly recommend them.
Below is a picture I took last summer of a pretty butterfly paying a visit to the Canary Bird Zinnia, which I got from Baker’s Creek. I also ordered several other colors of their Zinnias to include the Orange Hawaii, Orange King, Envy, & Miss Willmott. They also sent me a free gift, Love-in-a-mist mixed colors. I sowed mine in the fall of last year so I am eagerly awaiting for their arrival.
If I could make one more recommendation….Their red romaine Lettuce was very flavorful. and is a good cool weather crop; great for early spring planting here in WV….reminds me; I need to re-order some for this year………
The contest will last for 4 weeks. It starts today and ends on Friday, April 19th. I will pick a winner on Sunday the 21st. I will put all the names in a jar and pick a winner by pulling out a name.
