Save Landreth Seed Co

bi11me(5b)November 13, 2011

Here is a quote from the home page of the Landreth Seed Co. website:

"Since 1784, the D. Landreth Seed Company has been providing its customers with one of the most extensive selections of fine lawn and garden seeds in the world. Our founders introduced into the United States some of the most beloved flowers and vegetables known today including the Zinnia, the white potato, various tomatoes, and our own Bloomsdale Spinach. We have become the oldest seed house in America because we are passionate in our quest for excellence in quality, service and innovation."

Landreth Seed Co. is in danger of closing it's doors. Anyone who is concerned about preserving heirloom seeds, small businesses, and an historic part of American agriculture can help to save this company by buying from them. They have a beautiful catalog, many historic seeds, excellent hand tools, and a nice selection of gifts. Please take a moment to visit their website, landrethseeds (d0t)com

and if you have the means, to support them if you can. They are part of the foundation of what Heirloom Gardening in America is about. And please send this link to your gardening friends who may not read these threads, or "Like" them on Facebook. Help make history by preserving it with technology.

Every business is "in danger of closing it's doors" if they don't sell enough, duh. I don't see anything superior about their products that would make me want to order from....oh yeah, where are they? PA! Why not put that up there on the masthead with the company name?
