Kate's Curated Seed Collection is the perfect mix of seeds for a beginner/intermediate gardener in New England to create a beautiful small garden of vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers.
Choosing seeds can be overwhelming. They're surprisingly expensive, there are hundreds of varieties available, and they come in quantities that are much too large for a typical small garden. How do you know which ones you'll like, or what will grow well in your area?
Kate's Curated Seed Collection takes the guesswork out of all of this!
Here's what you get:
13 seed packets with exactly the right amount to plant a 4'x8' bed (or similarly sized area)
Varieties I have personally grown (and love!) successfully for years in Massachusetts (zone 6a).
All seeds are GMO-free and organic
Enough for successive plantings through spring, summer and early fall.

Seeds included in the collection:
Red Russian Kale
Lettuce (over 10 varieties)
Sugar Ann Snap Peas
Beets (2 varieties, 4 amazing colors)
Northern Pickling Cucumber
Green Beans (3 varieties-yellow, green and purple)
Crackerjack Mix Marigold
Jewel Mix Nasturtium
Seed availability can vary, so I may substitute different varieties in any given packet. Don't worry: I'll only include seeds I love and have grown myself, and I'll include a note in the package with the names of the substituted varieties.
You may notice there are no tomatoes, peppers or eggplant seeds included. This is because in New England, these need to be started inside and transplanted as seedlings into the garden in May. If you are interested in organic seedlings for these plants, see Organic Heirloom Seedlings.
