Herbs & Vegetables
We in the Herb and Vegetable Department want to help people grow good food.
In keeping with the philosophy of Edwards Greenhouse, we believe in and embrace the concept of sustainability. Meeting the required standards is a demanding and daunting challenge, but one toward which we are ever striving. We use safe, natural fertilizers and, when necessary, organic pesticides.
We take pride in offering an extensive selection of varieties, the common as well as the less common. The majority of our stock is raised from seed here in our greenhouses.
We are unwavering opponents of GMOs, and so you need never wonder if that’s what you’re getting from us. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are not the same thing as hybrids, which we do carry. The genetic modification involved in the creation of a GMO requires literal gene splicing. A hybrid requires cross-pollination.
Whenever possible, we support independent seed companies; admittedly, however, buying seed from corporate suppliers is at times inevitable, as certain popular cultivars are available only through them. Similarly, we avoid, when we can, the use of treated seed; our next goal is to eliminate treated seed entirely.
