About Renee's Garden Seeds
At Renee's Garden, I offer only the varieties that are very special for home gardeners, based on great flavor, easy culture and exceptional garden performance.  This seed line is my personal selection of new, exciting and unusual seed choices of time-tested heirlooms, certified organic seeds, the best international hybrids and fine open-pollinated varieties. I harvest and use the vegetables and herbs in my kitchen to choose the most delicious, and cut the flowers for bouquets to select the finest colors, forms and fragrances. Our varieties are tested and guaranteed for every major US climate zone.Colorful seed packets

Our individually written packets offer beautiful watercolor portraits, with personally written descriptions, complete growing instructions, a quick-view planting chart, growing tips, harvesting information and cooking ideas. Inside you'll find superior quality seed- the top germinating, reliable seed lots usually reserved for specialty growers. First and foremost, Renee’s Garden is a company run by gardeners, for gardeners. It is our way to spread the joy of gardening as a meaningful, productive and satisfying activity that connects us to each other and the earth.   Read our Monthly Newsletters

  Grow Organically with Renee's Garden
We have been committed organic gardeners for over 25 years, using strictly organic gardening practices with great success and satisfaction. Everyone at Renee’s Garden eats and enjoys the organic produce we grow in our trial gardens as a significant part of our diets. Because reliable supplies of seed grown to the USDA’s National Organic Program Standards are somewhat limited, our organic seeds are sourced from small USDA Certified Organic seed growers, family farms and cooperatives who meet our high standards for germination, purity and the absence of seed-borne pathogens.

Whether you plant our Certified Organic seeds or choose from our large range of conventionally produced seed varieties, you should know that supporting sustainable farming practices is an integral part of Renee’s Garden. We have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge" developed by The Council for Responsible Genetics; we do not sell chemically treated or genetically engineered seeds.
