Heirloom Garden Collection
The word Heirloom comes from Medieval Europe when someone apprenticing under a master weaver would eventually become the "Heir" of the "Loom" and all the knowledge and business connections that would go with it. We have come to use the terms "heirloom" to describe something of antiquity that still exists and we treasure it. This certainly applies to the heirloom varieties of yesteryear that still posses the flavors, colors and aromas that have endeared them to generations before us.
This is a collection of some of our favorite heirloom seeds that have found a happy home in our gardens and in our hearts.
