The next step is how to choose organic seeds. The problem is organic seeds can be hard to come by. The typical stores, such as Home Depot or other large stores with gardening departments, do not carry them. Instead, many gardeners order their seeds online. Even the online stores can be few and far between in carrying organic seeds. However, there are a few that notably specialize in selling these types of seeds.
The first and most notable company is Burpee (burpee.com). Any experienced gardener will know Burpee, because it is a company widely known for selling gardening essentials, especially seeds. In fact, there is a section on their website solely dedicated to organic seeds. Gardeners can buy vegetable seeds for sweet bell peppers, Buttercrunch lettuce, winter squash, watermelon, golden corn, carrots, tomatoes, beets and much more. In all, there are seven pages worth of organic seeds.
The second company is Seeds of Change (seedsofchange.com). It is certified organic and sells over 1200 varieties of plant and vegetable seeds. They are grouped into categories such as Urban Gardening and Four Season Gardening. Seed types include artichokes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Chinese cabbage, fennel and okra.
The third company is Peaceful Valley Farm & Garden Supply (groworganic.com). They sell certified organic seeds in packs. Vegetable seeds include sweet basil, gourmet lettuce, spinach, summer squash, kale and arugula. If necessary, you can save money and do a Big Order Discount to buy in bulk.
Use the above tips for growing organic vegetables and you should be well on your way to a nutritious and delicious gardening experience. Remember to buy from reputable companies and check out all labels. Also, don't forget to ask questions if organic quality is in doubt.
