Choosing heirloom seeds
Radio interview source: Diane Whealy, co-founder, Seed Savers Exchange
When starting your flower or vegetable garden from seed, consider incorporating some heirloom varieties into your plan. Your flowers won't look like everyone else's, and your vegetables will be unique in both appearance and flavor. It's really no more expensive to plant heirloom seeds than modern varieties, and it's fun to try something "new" in the garden, even when it's really something "old."
