Learn to Grow Seeds at Home Naturally

Hi, glad you have found us! We have been growing and collecting seeds from our native and natural-themed garden plants for several seasons now.

My husband and I decided to join forces and sell our native and natural-themed garden seeds to meet several requirements.

The desire to help every gardener grow without the use of toxic chemicals or synthetic chemicals.

A passion to help save the Monarch butterfly and other endangered pollinators.

Viva Nature began in 2020 as a mission to fill the garden with native flowers, Bob, my husband and I meet on Facebook in 2008 just shortly after he was diagnosed with young-onset of Parkinson's' Disease.

Bob's disability is progressing I am realizing I will need to spend more time at home to help fight this debilitating disease.

As a lifelong gardener, I have encouraged Bob to learn some basic growing skills and benefit from the therapy of gardening.

Bob and I helped in the garden together in the UK, for friends, family, and by recommendation, as Bob's health declined we had no choice but to accept that he would return to the US alone.

A decade apart, a visa application and finally my husband and I were reunited in the US and had dispensed with the long-distance relationship.

2020 was a difficult year for so many, fortunately, I was able to retain my employment as an essential worker directing the nonprofit organizations through Covid keeping thousands of staff safe.

On a home-front, we lost the opportunity to move to a single-level home in the garden state and spent much of 2020 a Covid couple held up in City confines.

Despite the trials and tribulations of Parkinson's, the progression, and the anxiety that Parkinson's' disease brings, we are embracing 2021 with gusto and excited about growing again.

These days I manage the garden and on good days Bob helps me collect and package the seed, motivated by the desire to find a ranch-style home and a few acres of land outside of the City limits.

We believe in the generous helping of mixed natives plants, trees, shrubs, and perennials. We also opt for five seasons of interest in all the gardens we create, ensuring enhanced flowering season, pro-longed habitat, a balanced, sustainable environment for wildlife.

By building a stick pile, installing a water reservoir, starting a compost heap, and even some worm compost. Planting trees, make a garden and grow with it, we are both determined to live well and help others Fight Parkinson's Head On!

Health Choices, Garden-focused seasonal approach to sustainability at home.

Over the years I have encouraged thousands of people to garden, as a tutor for disabled gardeners, coach for budding gardens, housekeepers, farmers, gardening staff, families, neighbors friends.

I have grown to believe that the closer to nature you can garden the happier we all will be! Try adding beneficial elements to any plant-based location, you will invite positive energy and we want to share that with you through our seeds and garden tips.

Filling your available outdoor space or even borrow some wasteland, you can give wildlife a home in the City and even make plans to escape to the countryside. (Fingers crossed)

Thank you for taking the time to read our story, it means so much to share our seeds with you and we hope you enjoy them and the wildlife they bring for many years to come!

Live well, Be safe, and Garden as life depends upon it! Viva Nature
