What types of seeds should I save?
Seeds require different levels of work, experience and space to save. So what are the best seeds for you to save? We encourage people to start with what we've labeled as the "super easy" plants. We ask people who check out seeds to grow them organically for your benefit and the benefit of others.
Super Easy: Easy Peas-y
These seeds can most reliably be saved by the home gardener, even if you've never saved seeds before. Watch our videos on Peas and Beans and Lettuce to help you get started.
Easy: Takes a little time & know-how
Some plants are biennials, which means they produce seeds the second growing season. These are still suitable for some beginners. The issue is do you have the space! Many of these require large populations and isolation from things that could cross-pollinate with them. Check out the resources on our Seed Saving page.
