Below are listed much-demanded seeds which do not readily fit into our other seed lists. We have not yet been able to find organic varieties of these seeds. However, none of these seeds have any chemical treatment in the packet. They are untreated seeds and are therefore safe to handle. As with all our seeds, these below are open-pollinated and none are gene-modified.
