America’s Premier Source for Heirloom Seeds since 1975


Long-time organic gardening champion Bob Rodale once said “a garden’s best crop is happiness.” Now, even The Wall Street Journal agrees. “Vegetable Gardens Help Morale Grow,” proclaimed a Journal headline last August. Gardening is good for business. It lowers grocery bills, helps with employee recruitment and retention, and gives small companies an edge over competitors. A company garden is the office watercooler, employee fitness center and executive dining room rolled into one. Nationwide, some 7 million new gardens were planted last year, according to the National Gardening Association. That is no surprise. The case for seed saving and the mission of Seed Savers Exchange has never been more timely or compelling. As first-time gardeners dig up their backyards and existing gardens are enlarged, demand for vegetable seed is soaring. Seed houses throughout the nation could barely keep up with the demand last year. Many varieties sold out early, leaving gardeners scrambling for whatever seed they could scrounge. Happily, seed savers don’t have to worry as much about scant supplies. We produce much of our own garden seed. That’s why saving seed increases the innate happiness of gardening. It provides a great sense of personal satisfaction, food safety and security. Many other things are also growing happiness for Seed Savers Exchange members: Our online Yearbook is now a reality. The main headings on each variety in this catalog tell how many additional varieties our members offer in the Yearbook. Next online for members will be our classic Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory, then the Garden Seed Inventory. Those books cost nearly $50, but Seed Savers members can access them online for free. Saving so much money should bring much happiness. New membership categories will let you spend more time in your garden and save even more money. A three-year membership saves $20 over annual renewals. Supply of many seeds is expected to be extremely tight in 2010, due to bad weather and crop failures.  So be happy about all of those wonderful heirloom seeds you saved this year.  And don’t wait for word from Wall Street to buy what seed you do need for the coming season. Order seeds early from this catalog and from the Yearbook. And, please, become a member of Seed Savers Exchange, so you can enjoy even more seeds from our Yearbook and offer your own seeds to other members. “Exchange” is Seed Savers’ last name. Thank you for your support. We wish you a bountiful 2010. Happy growing!

At the end of each description is a coded source list. This book will prove to be of practical use to both hobbyists and agricultural professionals alike, as it builds on the heritage of plant breeding and seed preservation in the United States.
