Organic Seeds

10 out of 10 stars (1 vote)

Green Space Design grows a comprehensive selection of organic flower seeds, organic herb seeds, and organic vegetable seeds. Our garden is surrounded by pristine forest, fresh mountain air, and the crystal clear waters of Cortes Island BC Canada. All of our seeds saved are from organically grown plants, of open pollinated, non hybrid and some heirloom varieties. When the organic seeds in our garden have ripened in the summer sun, we hand-pick, manually process, and personally package them. Organic Seeds designed as nature intended and ready to plant into your Green Space.
