I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

White Yarrow Seed
Hundreds of tiny, delicate white flowers are born of feathery fern like foliage.
Yarrow was a common site in gardens of years past and chances are pretty good it was in your Grandmother's garden. Yarrow was found amongst other medicinal herbs in the Neanderthal burial site in Iraq which dates from around 60,000 BC and has become famous in herbal medicine as one of the earliest indications of human’s use of medicinal plants.
Very hardy once established and will return year after year. Excellent heat and drought tolerance. Will even tolerate coastal environments and thrive. Yarrow is said to regenerate from roots easily after fire! Now that is one hardy plant!
Yarrow blooms from June to October. Yarrow prefers well drained soil, but can be tolerant of many conditions.
Makes excellent cut and dried flowers.
Yarrow is a magnet for many species of native pollinators. Attracts and feeds predatory wasps that help keep the bad bugs out of your garden. Also attracts hoverflies and ladybugs which do the same thing. No sustainable/organic garden should be without yarrow.
Butterflies love these flowers!
Deer and rabbit resistant.
It is said that an extract of yarrow also repels mosquitoes and is said to kill the larva. The US Army found tincture of yarrow outperformed DEET in repelling ticks and mosquitoes, it just needs to be reapplied more frequently.
In the Middle Ages, yarrow was part of an herbal mixture known as gruit used in the flavoring of beer prior to the use of hops.
Yarrow was once used by the soldiers of the civil war to stop bleeding, but far before as the Romans carried it into battle for the same reason. The dried plant was packed into the wounds where it acted to stop the bleeding and ward off infection. Adding yarrow to skin lotions, oils or salves can help with eczema or dry skin. Farmer John uses a mixture of yarrow in his shaving cream to stop the bleeding from any accidental cuts.
