Italian Large Leaf Basil 
Warm weather annual develops into an attractive, bushy plant. Grow in containers or flower borders. Used in pesto, tomato dishes, soups, fish and poultry dishes, fresh or as quick-frozen leaves. Full or partial sun.
Chives

Cilantro/Coriander 
Versatile spice indeed! Use leaves or seeds. Popular, easy to grow annual. Has a pleasantly aromatic and flavorful seed for use in potpourris and to flavor pastry, beans, stew, sausage, and fish. Distinctively flavored leaves are used in Latin and Southeast Asian dishes. Best with fowl, meats, and spicy dishes.
Bouquet Dill 
Light-green, feathery leaves and small, greenish-white flowers. Leaves used fresh to flavor salads, dips, vinegars and meat, fish and vegetable dishes. Seeds are collected and dried for use in pickle recipes. Self seeding. Full sun.
Florence Fennel 
A very versatile herb. Its leaves, stalks, seeds, roots and plant base or 'apple' are all used. It is grown for its delicious tender 'apple' which can be eaten raw or blanched along with its stalk when young. Its leaves and seeds have an anise like flavor.
Sweet Marjoram 
Spicy and aromatic perennial, usually grown as an annual. Has square, branching stems and sometimes grows to the size of a small shrub. Likes to be sheltered in a warm, sunny spot. Protect from frost, and water sparingly.
Italian Oregano 
An herb that grows wild in central and southern Italy and the rest of the Mediterranean countries. Has a much stronger flavor dry than fresh but just as good. However use less dry oregano, as the flavor is more concentrated. Used on pizza and in sauces as well as vegetables. Very popular in Sicily where it is often added to preserved olives. Easily grown in a pot.
Parsley 
Strong, vigorous, upright growing plant with long, attractive stems for bunching. Leaves are heavily curled, dark green and maintain their color well into the season. Has good grow back for several harvests.
Rosemary 
Fragrant evergreen herb used with meats and stews. An easy to grow perennial that enhances everything from eggs to bread to vegetables and meats. This dependable and versatile herb needs little care or water to thrive. Since it is attractive and tolerates some degree of drought is also used in landscaping It is considered easy to grow for beginner gardeners, and is pest resistant. Rosemary is extremely high in iron, calcium and Vitamin B6.
Broadleaf Sage 
Shrubby evergreen perennial with broad, velvety, dusty green leaves which have a woodsy camphor-like taste and tempting aroma. Traditionally used as a poultry stuffing and to season meat. Perennial.
Tarragon 
A hardy and vigorous plant, spreading at the roots and growing over a meter tall. Russian Tarragon actually prefers poor soils and happily tolerates drought and neglect. It is not as strongly aromatic and flavorsome as its French cousin, but it produces many more leaves from early spring onwards that are mild and good in salads and cooked food. Tasting somewhat like Anise, Tarragon is mildly sweet and adds excellent flavor to sauces, soups, vegetables and even desserts. The young stems in early spring can be cooked as an asparagus substitute. Grow indoors from seed and plant out in the summer. Spreading plant can be divided easily.
Thyme 
This indispensable kitchen herb is a small bushy perennial shrub that grows up to 15” tall and produces multiple stems with tiny silver-green aromatic leaves and white to pale purple flowers. The whole plant (leaves, stems and flowering tops) is used fresh or dried to flavor a wide variety of dishes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Q: How long will my seeds last?
A: Shelf life varies depending on the seed, but it ranges from 1-10 years dependent on the type of seed.  Herbs and Teas have a shelf life of 2-3 years, vegetables and fruits range from 5-7 years, and grains range from 7-10 years.   Store all seeds in a cool, dry, and dark location to maximize life. Do not freeze and do not expose to heat.

Q: Why should I use non-hybrid (open pollinated) rather than hybrid seeds?
A:
  • Better Nutrition – Commercial Produce lacks nutrition, research has shown.
  • Sustainable Gardening - Saving Seeds is only possible with open-pollinated seeds
  • Economic Security – In recessions and depressions, FOOD IS ECONOMIC SECURITY
  • Food Supply Independence – If food supplies are challenged, home gardening is freedom.
  • Crop Diversity – Participate in saving the original strains from extinction
  • Investment Hedge – Seeds are an excellent alternative investment to paper money, stocks and securities, even gold if the markets were to dive long-term.
Q: Why should I buy Heirloom Organics Non-Hybrid Seed Packs?
A:
  • Best price – Heirloom Organics Seed Pack are wholesale or bulk amounts of seed sold in complete, integrated packs.
  • Largest Amount – Our Seed Packs are HUGE! From the Vault to the Farm Pack, we provide bulk quantities in our packs.
  • Long-Term Storage Prepared – We use the VAULTtm method to extend seed life up to twice.
  • Use now AND store for later – Our Packs are double sealed so you can use seeds this year and store the rest without harming the extended shelf-life.
Q: Can I open my seeds, use some and re-seal them for storage?
A: Yes. They are double sealed so you can reseal them without harming the shelf life.
Q: Can I buy individual packets?
A: No, we ONLY SELL COMPLETE SETS. This is the only way we can provide wholesale amounts AND process them for long-term storage. Sorry, No individual Packets and no replacements.
Q: Should I freeze my seeds?
A: Only if you plan to keep them there. Freezing DOES help extend seed life as long as they are not removed often.
Q: How Much will shipping be?
A: UPS determines the shipping amount. The shipping cost will be added to your order once you place it.
Q: Do you ship to Europe/Asia?
A: We only ship to U.S. and Canada currently. Agricultural restrictions between countries make it very difficult to ship seeds.
Q: You DO ship to Canada?
A: Yes we do, however, Canada restricts some grains like wheat, barley and rye. We must provide replacements on some packs and some we cannot ship at all. Please see the list.
Q: What are Heirloom seeds?
A: Heirloom seeds are simply the oldest strains of open pollinated seeds. Varieties that were commonly grown during early periods of history. No one really agrees at what age a seed becomes 'heirloom'. Some say fifty years, others disagree. It is not necessary to have "heirloom" seeds for a survival or preparedness garden. Open pollinated seeds are what is required.
Q: What about variety replacements?
A: Due to ongoing seed shortages, seed varieties subject to change without notice. Replacements will be as close as possible and will be included in your order documentation.
Q: Do I get instructions or assistance?
A: Yes! When your product arrives, you will have access to the largest Organic Growing Guide on the internet for free, 24/7 information.
