 Top U.S. Garden Seed Companies

When it comes to garden seeds, there are several traits that gardeners value highly. First and foremost, they want quality seeds. Gardeners want to feel confident, that the seeds they plant will sprout and grow well. Often, there's no second chance to replant seeds, if the first planting fails to sprout. Imagine waiting weeks to see if your pepper plants sprout indoors. By the time you give up on the first planting, your  garden season is behind by 2-3 weeks. You may have to buy more expensive live plants from a garden store.

Gardeners also want variety in the seeds offered. Gardeners certainly have their favorites. Gardeners generally know what variety grows best in their home garden. The dozens of tomato varieties offer different taste, appearance and uses.  Everyone has a favorite zinnia. or marigold that they like to grow.

Some companies offer a guarantee that the seeds will grow. While successful seed germination is often  impacted by the experience of the gardener, or weather, top seed companies stand behind their product. This is important to many gardeners.

Many home gardeners also enjoy growing new and different varieties. They place value on new plant introductions. It's an opportunity to take up the challenge of growing something new and different, or something no one else in the neighborhood has in their garden..

Price is a part of the seed selection process for some. It could be a personal budget constraint that drives some gardeners to lower cost seed brands. Meanwhile, price is not an issue to some gardeners, whose top priorities are quality, seed viability, or product selection.

Seeds are a vital part of gardening and a huge market. 44% of Americans grow a flower or vegetable garden, or both. In times of trouble, crisis, or uncertainty, people turn to vegetable gardens in particular, to ease their concerns. During these times, survival seeds, take on increased importance.
