Heirloom Plants and Seeds
Here are companies which specialize in heirloom plants and/or seeds. These tend to be open-pollinated varieties which have been grown successfully for
perhaps 50 to more than hundreds of years. Growing heirlooms helps keep biodiversity alive and well. You will also find companies which sell some
heirloom seeds in many of the specialist categories, and a good sampling can be found in Organic, Ornamental , Vegetables, and General .
