Seed Source for Northern Gardeners

Brrrrr!!! Minus 27 Celsius…it’s a chilly one out there today!!!

Saving seed

Saving your own seed is the best feeling of all…but catalogues and local nurseries are pretty fun to browse through as well!

I’ve been going through my seeds to see what I have to order and came across a few packets I got from Best Cool Seeds last year. They’re a company in Alaska that specializes in cool climate gardening. The seeds arrived as promised and they always throw in a couple freebies. I realized I didn’t have them listed on my Online Catalogue page so I added them today.

For those of you that might be interested here is the blurb from their site (and just in case you’re growing suspicious, no I don’t get anything for telling you about them : )

Here’s their blurb…

Best Cool Seeds is the online store for Denali Seed Company, America’s foremost authority on cool climate gardening. The garden varieties sold in this e-store have been performance tested in Alaska in private gardens and in university trials for over 50 years. Our veteran horticulturist has taught and worked with gardeners in arctic and sub-arctic locations for over 30 years and only varieties that will mature in these regions are sold in this e-store. Our horticulturist has selected the varieties available in this e-store because they excel in cool northern climates that include arctic and sub-arctic regions, and mountain areas.

I love how she looks like she is doing the two handed seed packet grab...just like a true cold climate gardener unleashed in a seed store in February!

Now back to seed sorting and stoking the fire…
