This elegant and aromatic amethyst basil has been homegrown in my professor's windowbox without chemcials and pesticides! As a gourmet fanatic and avid gardener, he would love to share this heirloom with you!

The Osmin purple basil is a unique heirloom basil variety that has darker violet leaves than any other purple basils. This unique and delectable herb is often used in Italian cuisine or used as a savory spice or garnish. A popular and trendy use is in the Caprice salad on picture 3.
Purple basil offers a more mellow and less intense flavor as compared to it's green cousins. It's leaves are smooth and savory and are excellent for aromatherapy as well. Complimenting especially well with tomato dishes, the purple basil is an excellent way to infuse the traditional basil flavor without overpowering your dish.
Somewhat less brisk, bold, and intense than the green basil, purple basil can be used in exactly the same way. Doubling also as a garnish and dye plant, this basil provides fanciful leaves that can tint fabrics, create non-toxic paints and dyes, and be used as a decorative touch in dish presentation or arrangements.
Basil plants will grow from 1-2 feet tall but can be shorter if trimmed or harvested often. Tiny purple flowers will appear on tall stalks in the summer-fall! Adorable and practical!

Each hand designed and child decorated packet contains at least 25 organic homegrown seeds! Each seed packet features it's own special image drawn by our residential little artists! We do not use pesticides or chemicals in our gardens!


Shipping costs cover the base shipping and the handling- this includes production of seed packets, seed harvesting, and preservation. We also isolate plants to ensure strain purity and harvest, dry, and clean each seed pod by hand! All the best, because we care!

Nothing has grown out after seeding 2 months ago.
Spineless Okra
Sophie's Seeds and Swine responded

Hello there! We are very sorry to hear that your seeds did not spout. We test all of our seeds at the BEES Garden program within our community to ensure a germination of at least 75% or higher. Okra tend to be difficult to spout, so I highly recommend all growers to nick or score the seeds, soaking them at least 24 hours prior to sowing, as noted in our instructions. With that technique, my seeds sprout nearly all the time!

I was extremely disappointed with the shiso seeds that I purchased. Now the shiso leaves have grown and turned out to be completely different than Japanese ones. The product description and photo indicated "Japanese" shiso, but the ones growing right now has different shapes and seems to be either Korean shiso or something else and does not have any smell or taste of Japanese shiso at all.
Also, the Okura seeds that I purchased appeared to be already dead as seeds and nothing has came out even after following seeding instructions correctly. Extremely disappointed with both seeds!

Sophie's Seeds and Swine responded

Hello there! All of our shiso seeds come from a single elderly grower in our neighborhood collective. We noticed that she accidentally mixed up two of her varieties when providing seeds, hence we obtained correct seeds and offered a replacement, since our charity-based company does not offer refunds per our store policies. Unfortunately, we were sorry to hear that you denied the replacement and sought to leave us negative feedback. We offered replacements of the correct seeds, yet were forced to withdraw due to the intimidating messages we were received. We highly recommend all buyers to communicate courteously in the future so that we may make amends in case of errors. Our goals are to spread smiles and sprouts, and we are always open to help! We likewise hold the right to withdraw services from assertive customers.
