Organic Herb Seeds

Each packet of our Certified Organic Herb Seeds is packaged according to the type of herb; see the individual product descriptions for the number of seeds per packet.


Herb seeds are generally started indoors, often in containers or pots that can easily be moved from the patio to the house as the seasons dictate, so as to have fresh herbs year round. If germinating indoors, temperatures between 40°F to 90°F are recommended. Under ideal conditions, it usually takes 6-12 days for herb seeds to germinate. Seeds should be started 5 weeks before your estimated transplant date.


In order to grow the healthiest; best tasting herbs, the pH level of your garden soil should be 6.0.-7.0. A soil tester will take the guess work out of determining the pH levels.


We hand-fill each packet of our certified organic herb seeds for sale to ensure both freshness and quality. We sell only non-GMO herb seeds!
