Growing new varieties is one of the joys of gardening. Farmer Seed and Nursery's newest offerings include outstanding hybrid and heirloom vegetable varieties. Most gardeners like to grow some of the newest offerings alongside their favorite vegetable choices every year. Our open-pollinated heirloom vegetable varieties have been loved by generations of gardeners. These are often flavor favorites. Our newest hybrids feature the best in plant breeding and may have qualities such as outstanding disease resistance, good garden performance, high yields and flavorful vegetables. When selecting vegetable seed packets to buy, consider the varieties' growing requirements. Most vegetables grow best in full sun and well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Some vegetable seeds are directly sown into the garden soil while others are started indoors and transplanted to the garden.
