Southern Exposure Seed Exchange is a wonderful source for heirloom seeds and other open-pollinated (non-hybrid) seedsseeds with an emphasis on vegetables, flowers, and herbs that grow wellin the Mid-Atlantic region. We support seed saving and traditional seedbreeding. Seed savers and breeders are to thank for our rich selectionand we will do whatever we can to support our customers and associatesto carry on this noble tradition.
We do extensive germinationand purity testing of our garden seeds and nursery stock to ensure thatwe can always provide our customers with the highest quality possible.We want your plants to excel.
Though the majority of seed saversthat we contract to help us raise our seeds do so using traditionalnatural methods, some have opted not to become Certified Organic. Thenew USDA Organic rules state that in order to grow Certified Organicproduce, growers must plant Certified Organic seeds if suitablecertified seeds are available. We are therefore committed to offerorganic seeds whenever possible for our varieties that we feel arewell-suited to market growers, contracting our non-certified butphilosophically organic growers to raise seeds that are more suited forhome use.
