The Art of Seed with K Greene

Do you have all your seeds for the next growing season?

This time of year is when many gardeners peruse, study, choose, and order seeds from the many purveyors who send out catalogs each winter. My head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and I, sow thousands of seeds in my greenhouse every year. We order seeds from our favorite sources, but I also get seeds from friends, find them during my travels, and save them from years past. Growing from seed is an affordable alternative to purchasing plants, but one can also choose from a greater variety of seeds than what's typically available at a nursery. K Greene is the co-founder and creative director of Hudson Valley Seed Company, a national seed business and regional seed farm devoted to producing seed and celebrating seeds through art. Yesterday, K spoke to members of The Bedford Garden Club about the importance of seeds and his passion for preserving them.
