Seed Questions

有机种子将在有机花园/农场中生长更好,不允许有任何遗传污染,并以对人和环境更安全的方式生产。Click hereif you’d like to read more about this important issue.
None of our seeds are genetically modified. At this point, genetically modified seeds are only sold and used in the commercial agricultural sector, not the home gardening sector. Even if they were available to gardeners, GrowJourney would only offer certified organic, open-pollinated, heirloom garden seeds. Sustainably feeding everyone on earth with real, healthy food isentirely possible, but it’s going to require a new, more thoughtful paradigm than we’ve ever used before. If you’re interested, we’ve outlined our stance on genetic engineering a bit more over on我们的Seedspage.
Yes! Nothing makes us happier than people saving seeds from the plants they grow themselves. Well one thing makes us happier: you sharing the seeds you saved yourself. That’s why we teach you how to save your seeds in our members-only GrowGuides.

Seed saving is SO incredibly important to a healthy, biodiverse food supply. Plus, the next generation of seeds will be even better adapted to your specific growing environment via natural epigenetic processes. Yes, your seeds will quite literally “customize” themselves to your garden/growing environment. You can read more about that process over on我们的Seedspage.

Simple: just let us know, and we’ll replace it free of charge. TheGrowjourney保证is that: 1) you’ll love the seeds our team selects for you, and 2) they’ll grow where you live (see more about that in the next question and answer).
Yes, but it’s important to understand what that means:

  1. 我们保证他们在年内的某些时候会在您的气候区增长。我们确实尝试季节性地发送你的种子,这意味着你会在你想要种植它们之前或在时间窗口之前到达。例如,我们在冬天和春天送夏季;我们在(夏天和秋天)发送凉爽/寒冷的天气籽;等等。
  2. 我们保证在您收到时,他们可以获得最高的发芽率。More about that below…

It’s impossible to guarantee that 100% of the seeds in each seed packet will germinate and grow into mature plants. That’s not how nature works, and there is germination rate variability between different seed varieties. However, all GrowJourney seeds have been independently tested to have the highest possible germination rates for the variety offered (you can find the germination rates on the front of each GrowJourney seed packet).

We can’t guarantee that each seed in each packet will germinate, but we can guarantee that your seeds will germinate at the rate shown on their respective packet if you:

c) store your seeds indoors (moisture and drastic temperature fluctuations can damage seeds).

同样重要的是要注意种子会随着时间的推移失去活力,这就是为什么我们的种子包和生长指南告诉你你的种子会保持有多少年(通常在3 - 5年之间)。

GrowJourney seeds will last for years. Inside each paper packet, you’ll notice that we’ve packaged your seeds in an extra plastic seed baggie–this ensures they’ll last even longer by reducing moisture exposure.

How long will GrowJourney seeds last?每个品种都有点不同,这就是为什么我们在所有种子数据包的前面放入到期日。如果您愿意,这使您可以轻松挽救未来几年的种子。因此,如果您现在没有太大的空间或时间,请考虑今年种植少量种子,并挂在其余的时间以后在路上。

Every serious gardener we know ends up having their own personal “seed library.” Also, consider sharing and swapping seeds with other gardeners in your area.

Polyculture plant systems (e.g. growing multiple varieties of plants together in symbiotic systems) are one of the most important things you can do to create a healthy, biodiverse garden.

  • Flowersattract crucial pollinators and beneficial insects that play a critical role in any garden system, from pollinating your fruits & veggies to controlling pest insect populations. Almost all the flower varieties we provide also have the added benefit of being edible to people too, making wonderful teas or additions to salad.
  • Herbsalso have multiple functions in a healthy, organic garden. They’re often effective pest-repellents, elegant landscape plants, and are key ingredients in lots of delicious foods.


It depends on your subscription.

  • 我们的小花园订阅offer 3 seed varieties each month, with each one ideally suited for growing in small spaces.
  • 我们的Large Garden Subscriptionsoffer 5 seed varieties each month, and some of the varieties will take more space to grow well. (Example a vining pumpkin or watermelon.)
We sure hope not. We’re confident that we have systems in place to make certain you’ll never get the same seeds twice in any 12-month period. If you do, please let us know and we’ll send you some new, different seeds (on us) along with an apology letter. We’d also encourage you to save seeds from your own plants for the future, so you’ll never need to buy any of the same varieties we send you ever again.

There are lots of ways to grow your own organic food. We prefer to use the methods that:

  • require the least amount of money and work in the long run,
  • yield the most food (for you and for all the good critters in your garden that do the hard work for you),
  • drastically and naturally improve the fertility of your soil while increasing the biodiversity in your garden ecosystem.

In our opinion, the methods (the “how to”) you choose to grow your own organic produce are less important than the broad philosophical approach (the “why”), which will ultimately guide your direction. The philosophy that’s been most helpful to us is渗透. At its core, permaculture is about observing and working with nature (biomimicry), rather than constantly fighting against it (conventional gardening/agriculture).

我们不使用任何人工合成的杀虫剂或除草剂s. We don’t use any synthetic fertilizers. Our soil gets healthier each year and we get more and more food each year with less work and less money required from us. It might sound too good to be true, but it’s not. We’re doing it, and so are lots of other people around the world (evenlarge farms就在美国)。最佳新闻:你也可以做到。和更多的人接受行动和关心我们分享的世界,我们的星球上的更好就会。

GrowJourney’s online educational resources are designed to help share knowledge from: 1) our team’s personal experiences (our team is full of expert organic gardeners, Master Gardeners, gardening teachers, and permaculture instructors), and 2) from top plant scientists and organic gardeners/farmers around the world. After you’ve grown with us for a couple of years and have a bunch of trial & error under your belt, you’re going to be the “expert gardener” that your friends & family turn to for gardening information and inspiration.
