Care Guide

Directions:
Sow Okra directly outdoors once all danger of frost has passed in your growing zone. There is no harm in starting them early indoors if you have room, in that case start 2-3 weeks before last frost date in your area. Once plants produce first sets of leaves harden outdoors and then transplant to garden or container.

Special germination instructions: Soak okra seeds in water for 12 to 24 hours before sowing.

Our Mission

(✿◠‿◠)

We sell small batches because we think it's important to try a bunch
of different types of plants in your garden, and in your climate,
to see what is beneficial.

Our seeds are harvested fresh every Fall when we make small batches to sell. We also source fresh seeds for the year from local farmers, seed banks, and non-gmo organically grown suppliers.

THAT MEANS:
• Non-GMO
• USA grown
• Open-pollinated
• Untreated (no fungicides, pesticides, herbicides, etc.)
• Tested to meet the highest germination standards
