planning and planting Made Easy
Here's How It Works:
Choose Your Plan
We save you the trouble of planning, whether you have a simple windowsill, a compact apartment porch, or a luscious backyard. Let us create the ideal garden layouts perfect for your home. Get the knowledge and support you need to build, plant, grow, and harvest your heirloom garden from start to finish.

Want an heirloom garden of your own?
All the info you need in one spot
Detailed ebook instructions custom-tailored around all of our plans – enjoy exclusive access to a members-only dashboard with articles that teach you how to locate, set up, fill, plant, and maintain your garden. Because the back of a 4″x6″ seed packet simply isn’t big enough to teach you how to be successful, and who has time to scour the whole internet? It’s all the info you need, right at your fingertips.
What Are Heirlooms?
Heirlooms are old-fashioned veggies and herbs that are traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Heirloom seeds produce plants with the same traits planting after planting, season after season, generation after generation. This ensures you always have a tastier harvest and one that comes from non-GMO, organic seedlings that date back up to 100 years or more. Click here to find out more about heirlooms.
The delicious, exceptional, and flavorful taste of heirloom veggies are qualities that can’t be found anywhere within the typical produce at major supermarkets. Crisp cabbages from Italy, nutty Native American squash, juicy vibrant colored heirloom tomatoes — they all immediately invoke flavorful images of savory dishes, and meals that leave your mouth watering with utter delight. It’s a natural flavor you have to grow for yourself.

The Backstory Behind Each Seed
What makes an heirloom plant special? Lots of things – but most of all, it’s the story behind the people and places that made it what it is today. That’s why every seed packet we source and ship to your garden comes with a well-researched article telling you all about it. What does that look like? Check out this one for free!
