Heirloom Seeds and how to grow your own

Heirloom seeds are open pollinated, the natural way. Their Offspring will have most or all of the characteristics of the parent, unlike Hybrid seeds which are artificially pollinated. Heirloom Seeds can be collected year after year, giving you control to grow your own seed supply at a very low cost (water and time). You can take control of your own seed supply and never have to buy seeds again. For additional information on growing your own seeds see my bonus seed growing information page.
