Welcome and take some time to look around while I update the garden and provide you with a delightful assortment of edibles and flowers to share with you for your garden. I garden organically and enjoy filling it with organically grown heirloom and non-GMO plants!

Here you will find a vast selection of garden seeds, vegetable seeds, flower seeds (especially for a fragrant cutting garden), garden seeds for a fragrant garden, cottage garden seeds and herb seeds. Occasionally I offer organically grown plants which come directly from my organic garden.

My selections cater to the home gardener/kitchen gardener who are focused on quality, and flavor. For those of us with limited space, quality results and exceptional flavor are of critical importance - especially for those of us who desire a gourmet experience from our own gardens.

What you receive are seeds being used in my gardens. All seeds are fresh and packaged in small quantities at reasonable prices so all home gardeners can afford to fill their gardens with wondrous selections.

I cherish my garden as a wonderful escape and respite which keeps me adding to it on a constant basis. This enables me to share with you the wonders and joys produced by my garden.

I love my gardens and love sharing with others the amazing goodies produced from and within those gardens. Most of the gardens are uniquely arranged into the kitchen garden, vegetable plots, fragrance gardens, rose gardens and edible gardens which house a number of edible fruits.

My love for heirlooms is intense and every effort is made to add to the collection of what we grow on an regular basis. Additionally, I import unusual varieties of seeds from all over the world to try in my garden and make available to others. Please check back frequently or send a message if there's something of interest. I may have it but not in large enough quantities to list it. However, there's always a willingness to share, if something is available.

Everything is grown using organic methods only. If a bug won't eat it, neither will we!

Thanks for your purchase.

Returns and exchange details
I believe strongly in the seeds provided to others. These are the same seeds we use in our own gardens. We want everyone who purchases from us to be completely satisfied. If, however, you receive an order and are not satisfied with your purchase, you are welcomed to return it within one week of receipt for a full refund. The buyer is responsible for the return shipping costs.

Due to variations in the seed starting methods of others, we do not replace seeds or offer refunds once a package is opened.

If for any reason you need to return unopened packets of seeds or other items purchased from this shop, please note the product must be reshipped at your own expense.

Effective immediately, all returned packages incur a 25% restocking charge or a minimum of $5 upon receipt. This will cover the costs of time and money spent packing and shipping items.

CANCELLATIONS: If a buyer CANCELS an order and has paid using a credit card or Paypal, the cancellation will be charged the service charge fees imposed by the credit card processor or Paypal. This is for ALL cancellations no matter how quickly a cancellation is processed from the time of payment. Such fees are imposed by the processor and not the seller.

Shipping fees/charges AND credit card or Paypal fees are not refundable.

Payments made via Paypal are accepted. However, given Paypal's policy of NOT refunding any fees associated with a transaction, any fees paid to Paypal by the seller are NOT returned, assuming a return is accepted. It is recommended buyers use another payment processor other than Paypal if there are concerns.

Seller is able to process transactions via credit cards or using digital payments, exclusive of Paypal, should the buyer wish to pay another way.

Contact seller in advance of purchasing for any questions or concerns.

SHIPPING:
SAVE ON SHIPPING: Use the 'Custom Listing' feature if you are buying 2 or more packets of seeds so I can help you save on shipping.

Once payment is received, every effort is made to ship all items the same week of payment.

We ship to the confirmed address listed on your Paypal account only. Please make sure the address provided is accurate and matches the address on your account. If there is a need to reship a package to a different address, there is an additional charge to repackage and reship. See Reshipping Fees for more information.

Please make sure your state permits the importation or delivery of the items you are requesting. Seller assumes no responsibility for any item confiscated as a result of an item not being permitted in the state in which you are requesting the shipment. Research whether there could be an issue prior to making your purchase.

Sorry NO SHIPPING of seeds to the following countries:

Australia
Spain

Orders from the countries listed above will receive an immediate cancellation and refund.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
I am overly happy to help you save on shipping costs by creating a CUSTOM ORDER for you. This means I combine all your products into one listing so you are not having to pay the additional per item shipping fees as a result of purchasing individual items.

Creating a CUSTOM ORDER is done fairly quickly (generally within the same day) but does require additional time, energy and money by me. Due to the unusual number of requests that are not completed some customers may be blocked or asked to make a purchase to cover the listing of the custom order. This will be done with requests that are not fulfilled. This will prevent me from taking time away from other customers who actually want to complete a custom order request.

STEPS TO CREATING A CUSTOM ORDER:
1. Select the items of interest by either placing them in your cart or jotting down the item and quantity desired.

2. Using the 'CUSTOM ORDER' button, click REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER, located on the front of the shop page.

3. Cut and paste all items of interest and include it in that message to send it to me ALONG with the location (city, state OR country) where the items will ship to.

4. You will receive an acknowledgement by me once the request is received. You will also receive additional details about the listing.

5. If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by clicking on the CONTACT THE SHOP OWNER button on the front page of the shop.


INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
We do ship internationally. However, international customers please make sure your country allows the importation of seeds before placing an order. Seller is not responsible for any items which have been or may be confiscated. Buyer is also responsible for any import duties or taxes associated with the order request. Buyer is expected to know the policies of the country where they are requesting the delivery.

Currently, the minimum shipping charge is $8 to ship outside of the US due to an increase in international postage fees.

RESHIPPING FEES:
Due to the cost of materials and shipping charges any reshipping incur a minimum fee of $8 to ship to the US and $13 to ship internationally.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ:

Q1: Do you combine shipping costs?
A1: Absolutely! If you choose the 'custom listing' feature, I will gladly combine shipping costs for you so you can save on shipping costs.

Q2: Do you offer larger seed packets?
A2: Thanks for asking! In some cases I do. However, my packets are specifically designed for the home gardener who 'typically' does not want or need a large quantity of one variety of seeds. I figure there's no justifiable reason to bulk up packages asking you to pay more just to engineer a larger sale. That's not how I conduct business.

While there are many who provide larger packets of one variety of seeds, the investment, when purchasing multiple packets, can be significant. In most cases, the packets I'm offering can provide more plants than a home gardener would realistically need in a kitchen garden - with plenty of seed for the following year or season, if desired.

As a home gardener, every effort is made to offer selections of magnificent culinary, growing and varietal value. Please ask for larger quantities of seed if there's something in particular you need. If I have it, I'm always more than happy to share with you.

Q3: How are seeds packaged?
A3: I personally hand pack each and every packet before packages go out to ensure the best quality and freshest seeds arrive to you. As insane and old fashioned as it sounds, it's true. It's really important to me your package arrives the way I like to receive packages. It's about more than just making sure it gets to you, it's about making sure you receive the best quality always. I demand that for myself and will accept nothing less for you.

Q4: I see your note about creating a custom listing. How does that work so I can save on shipping?
A4: This is absolutely the best idea as I truly do not like seeing people waste money on extra shipping costs where they don't have to. I will gladly combine all your items into one listing so you are charged flat rate shipping rather than the per-item fee when purchasing individual listings.

Send me a list of the items you wish to purchase in a 'convo'.
Include the ship to location (city/state if in the US or country if international)

I'll send you a link to your custom listing with all the items requested at one flat rate.

Q5: How often do you update the items in your shop?
A5: I update my shop with new products at least weekly and most of the time it's daily. Send me a convo and I'll send you a link where you can see the items available. I am no longer updating the Etsy shop with new items as often as I update my site. Etsy has increased their fees substantially so I will keep listings here to a minimum. Thanks for asking!
