What Makes Succeed Heirlooms a Great Online Seed Shop?
A Great Range of Open-Pollinated Heirloom Vegetable Seeds
Succeed Heirlooms offers a range of quality, open-pollinated heirloom vegetable varieties which grow true to type from collected seed, allowing growers to collect and save the seed from one year to the next. We are always on the look-out for new and exciting varieties to offer in our online seed catalogue. While heirloom vegetable seeds are the main focus, Succeed Heirlooms also offers a smaller range of herb seed, beneficial flower seed and live plants of varieties difficult to grow from seed. Everything currently for sale is listed in the online catalogue and is sorted into categories for ease of use.
Extensive Growing Tips
Our product pages contain detailed propagation and cultivation notes to help you grow each variety successfully and obtain a bumper harvest, we try to grow each variety we offer and will be adding new tips to the site as time goes on. To cut down on paper we don't send these notes with the seed but you are free to print a copy for yourself if you wish.
Re-Sealing Seed Packets
Succeed Heirlooms packages its seeds in re-sealing zip lock pouches for ease of use, no more seed spillage from loose open packets. For convenience all seed packets are labeled with the name of the variety, as well as brief details on when to sow, sowing depth, plant spacing, aspect, time to germination and time to harvest or flowering.
Diatomaceous Earth Seed Treatments
Our seeds haven't been treated with potent chemicals to control pests and pathogens. Some varieties are untreated while others that are prone to pests have been treated with a small amount of organic Diatomaceous Earth. Diatomaceous Earth is a fine powder made from the remains of fossilized algae. The particles, while not abrasive to human skin, cause cuts to the exo-skeleton of insect pests, drying them out and killing them. Diatomaceous Earth may also have anti-fungal properties. It should be noted however that none of our seed are of food grade and the seed of some varieties are even naturally toxic so should not be eaten or fed to animals, keep all seed out of reach of small children or pets which may swallow them.
We are passionate about environment concerns. Succeed Heirlooms is caring for the natural environment by minimising excess packaging, using recycled products where available and by running a carbon offset website by purchasing credits through VentraIP, our web host. We find these measures to provide a means of operating a more eco-conscious business while still allowing us to keep prices low.
