Handmade seed packets filled with organic, open pollinated, heirloom seeds grown and collected by hand on our small scale farm. A beautiful and loving gift for both expert and aspiring gardeners, as well as a creative, environmentally conscious alternative to conventional seed.

Each seed packet you buy helps to support The Kirk Estate – the 19th century haunted farmhouse and surrounding property where I live that has been preserved for five generations. These photos were taken there. Our small scale sustainable farm is worked the old fashioned way; no chemicals, no petroleum intensive machines -only sustainable farming practices that help to improve the land, the environment, the wildlife, and the people. Thank you for your support of this time and effort intensive process. Your purchase is helping to make a difference.

Myosotis arvensis
25+ seeds

The Common forget-me-not or Field forget-me-not are one of the first flowers to bloom in spring, making them the perfect choice to inter-plant with bulbs such as daffodils and tulips. Clusters of tiny blue flowers with yellow centers rise up to 18" high. Great for areas in full shade as well as areas with partial sun.

Days to Germination: 5-14 days
Lifecycle: annual, biennial, perennial (depending on climate)
Zone: 3-9
Sunlight: part sun, full shade
Height: 6-18"
Spread: 3-6"
Bloom time: early spring, mid spring, late spring

How to plant: Plant forget-me-nots seeds in fall for next season's bloom or as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. They do well in both shade and sun and will freely self seed once established but are not aggressive.

Complementary gift notes are available upon request.
In an effort to save ink and paper, a printed invoice is not included with your order. If you would like a receipt to be included with your purchase please let me know before your item is shipped.

Planting instructions are included under each listing. Printed instructions will be included upon request.
Because our seeds are separated by hand and not machine, expect to see some plant chaff mixed in with your seeds. This organic plant matter will break down naturally in the soil. All of our seeds and herbs are grown using organic, sustainable, and natural farming practices. No fertilizers or chemicals are ever used. Plants are only fed homemade compost, sun, rain, and limited Village water when necessary. Seeds are packaged in one of a kind handmade envelopes made from recycled paper, or in 100% recyclable kraft envelopes in order to reduce the amount of waste that surrounds our products.
Seeds are hand packed to ensure you receive only the healthiest seeds. Please familiarize yourself with growing conditions and instructions for your seeds before you plant them, as all seeds are different. Basic growing instructions can be found under each listing or by going to http://www.csrees.usda.gov/Extension/index.html to find your State's Cooperative Extension. Be sure to keep your seeds well watered after you plant them to ensure proper germination. Keep your seeds alive by storing them properly: keep your seeds in a dark, cool place (40-50 degrees F) with low-humidity. Never store seed in a warm, humid, or sunny spot. Stored properly, most seed will last for several years.
Our soap is made the old fashioned way in small batches here at the Kirk Estate, using the cold process method and a combination of natural and organic vegetable oils as well as organic herbs from our farmstead. All of our soap is free of dyes and animal byproducts and has a light natural scent.
As required by the FDA, we do not make any claims regarding the cosmetic or health related properties of our soaps.
It is normal for handmade soap to sweat lightly when it can't breathe or when it is hot and humid. Once you receive your soap, unwrap it and place in a cool, dry place to allow any excess moisture to evaporate.
