The varieties are
like antiques in the plant world, old varieties that have been grow
for their outstanding traits. The Packets themselves are beautiful
as they are based on packets the Hart Seed Company used circa
1902. All of the Hart Seeds in this catalog are No GMO, untreated
seeds. Growing these heirlooms along with all the great supplies
from The Online Greenhouse will make gardening very rewarding! Heirloom seeds have been grown and selected from generation to generation for their excellent
characteristics. Some people like them for the nostalgia of growing them. Others like the time tested
taste or admiring their beauty.
The requirements for heirlooms are not well defined, Some say anything
with grown before 1951 and some think that it should be varieties that have been grown before 1920 in
the age of victory gardens. The history of these plants is important for gardeners of all ages!
The other standard is that the plants must be open pollinated. Open pollination is when the plant is
pollinated by means of natural causes such as wind, insects and even birds. This helps keep the plants
true to type, meaning the seeds will grow plants very similar to their parent plant. Heirlooms are a must
for any gardener and are fun to grow!
