Here at The Herb Cottage, we are proud to carry seeds from Botanical Interests. Following is what Botanical Interests says about their seeds.

“At Botanical Interests our goal is to have a unique product. Our seed packets contain only superior quality seed (our standards are more strict than national standards). The germination rate of every variety is tested before we package it. And, every packet comes with our unconditional guarantee.”
Our packaging merges art, gardening and science- inspiring your customers and giving them the tools to become better gardeners.


That said, there currently are not any GMO seed for home gardens– it is all “commodity” crops such as soy, corn, canola and sugar beets that are grown on huge factory farms, using tons of chemical fertilizers, herbacides and pesticides and water that grow the GMO crops. That DOES NOT mean, however, that those heavy-handed seed companies will not try and introduce GMO seed into the home garden or market garden arena. Rest assured, I will NEVER sell GMO seed. NEVER!!

There are also very few types of even common hybrid seed in my offerings. I think you should be able to save your own seed or have the plant reseed itself and come true from that seed. Hybrids do not accomplish that. They need to be replanted every year with newly produced seed. Hybrids are NOT, however, unhealthy or harmful in any way. The breeder- not a chemist– crosses two like types of vegetabels: 2 tomatoes, 2 cucumbers, 2 green beans. The idea is to try and get the best of both varieties in one seed. This has been going on for hundreds of years…. and Mother Nature creates hybrids, too, with the help of wind and insects.
