The plant seeds sold at Botany Yards are all native to the U.S. Many seeds were hand collected from southeastern states. Growing plants from seed promotes more genetic diversity which will help the species to survive in the future. The seed packets are handmade. The plants were drawn in ink by Rita, copied, folded by hand into packets, and then filled with seeds.
The greeting cards were also drawn in ink by Rita and reproduced onto white cards. The drawings depict creatures found in the southeast region of the U.S. We would like to create an awareness of what is growing and living in our natural environment.
We are currently shipping to GA, NC, SC, AL, KY, and TN. Shipping and handling is $5.00.
