“I ordered Alpine strawberry plants, nettle plant, gooseberry plants and miscellaneous seeds. All were stunning, well grown and packaged. I immediately ordered more from this fine seller.”

Satisfied Customer

From: Mel L.

I ordered Perennial Leek plants; the plants arrived in a timely manner (about 6 days during the holiday rush); the plants were well packaged and the soil/roots were still moist. Sharon has been an excellent source of knowledge, willing to answer my questions and offer organic gardening suggestions. I will make additional purchases when the items I am interested in become available. I appreciate Sharon’s mentorship and look forward to learning more from her.

from previous customers...

Wonderful experience : “I purchased seeds from Sharon and it was a wonderful experience. You won’t get this kind of service from a corporate seed company. You really can feel the love that goes into her labor. Her shipping was fast, and her selection is great!…”

We look forward to hearing from you too!

About Sharon

When I was a child, I followed my Swiss immigrant grandmother around while she taught me about skills like using a scythe, making sauerkraut, her own clothes, yodeling, butchering animals, and telling stories from the Old Country. I was always drawn to saving seed and using plants for healing. It is my belief that the healthiest food is grown fresh in the garden using only organic and biodynamic gardening methods. I grew up on a local farm and have gardened for 50 years.

Today we attended the small buisness event in our local town and it was an interesting reflection of our culture.I really enjoyed talking and bartering with fellow venders. Most froze in the cold and it was n0t economIcally supportive . I have memories from childhood in the 50s of the bustling downtown before grocery stores or malls and when life was totally segregated. I was also there when the first downtown revitalization happened at the first farmers market over by the river with my 2 young girls. I have seen a lot growing up here on a farm on the shore including the death of a real farm.. stopped going to these events as well as farmers markets . I refuse to use chemical ,commercial manures nor am interested or support mass production.Diversity and local production is the best soluytion IMO It reminds me of the days in my youth before kids when we lived in our truck trying to earn a living with our art .I am still trying but few these days make the connection and that has been the case since the 50's when farms and foods became more industrialised and labor exploited around the world and most consumers basically ignorant or could care less about the consequenses ..We as a culture seem to support mind less consumption and trashing the planet while pretending we care. The $ is God.i was disgusted at the trash in the farm feilds on the way to the event with no littering laws in place and the farmers growing corporate soy and corn using chems almost all the way to the pavement on the back roads trying to squeeze every cent from the land and leaving no way to pull over for motorist ...it was disfunctional to say the least .Do we really only care about money and our own selves and hide from the ugliness our culture and neglect looking at the results of supporting this corporate system??Think about every bite of food you eat as well as how it was grown, packed, packaged, handled stored and shipped.. the same for any trash you create ...

How We Grow

We have gardened our homestead in Delaware over the last 40 years using both organic and biodynamic gardening methods, without any chemicals or commercial manure. Most importantly, we create our own biodynamic compost using our horses manure. In addition, we use seaweed, rock powders, do soil testing, and plant cover crops.
