Absolutely! 99% of all seeds on our site are heirlooms (which are defined as true to the parent) and are passed down from generation to generation. Many were bred for quality of flavor, productivity, hardiness and adaptability.

Yes! We will never knowingly sell GMO based seed products. Hardly any exist in the market anyways, but if they do, you can trust that we will steer clear of them.

In short, no... But we are firm believers that "organic" is how YOU decide to grow things. You can still organically grow your own produce with, non certified seeds because there is no difference aside from the price.

Grow a garden filled with a mixture of Cleome flowers, from freshly harvested Cleome hassleriana seeds. Cleome, or "Spider Plant," is a unique wildflower that produces clusters of gorgeous flowers in an array of colors, including white, violet, cherry and rose. The airy blooms open up to roughly 5 or 6 inches wide and are displayed over green, bushy foliage. The plants themselves grow to a mature height of roughly 4 to 5 feet tall, and can take up 18 to 24 inches of width.

The plants are known to attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees and hummingbirds as well. This makes Cleome the perfect addition to any insectary, or butterfly garden. The plants can be used as a border plant, along driveways, walkways and fences, and can also be sown by the masses to create a beautiful color display.

Categorized as an annual flowering plant, Cleome will establish itself quickly, from freshly harvested Cleome hassleriana seeds. The plants will flower through the summer months, later wilting with the first signs of frost. They are a bit drought tolerant, and thrive in the heat of summer. Seeds can be collected from spent blooms at the end of the season, or the seeds can be allowed to fall to the bare ground beneath.

Sowing The Seed

Cleome seeds can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow at a shallow depth of 1/16" under topsoil, to allow direct light to reach the seeds. This is a crucial part of the germination process, so remember not to bury the seeds too deep. Transplant, or direct sow outdoors, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.

Growing Conditions

Cleome plants will thrive in the heat of summer and prefer an area of full sunlight. Temperatures should be above 70F for optimal growth, and the soil should be fertile to average, but well drained. To improve your drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to any areas that consist of hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily with a spray bottle or mist setting until germination has occurred.

Germination & Growth

Your Cleome seeds will begin to sprout within 7 to 21 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of roughly 4 to 5 feet tall and can be spaced roughly 12 to 18 inches apart from one another. Spider Plant is a beautiful addition to many insectaries and butterfly gardens, and is loved by hummingbirds. It will undoubtedly attract all sorts of bumblebees, honeybees and butterflies as well.
