We source our seeds from Canadian companies that specialize in quality and sustainability. The seeds come to us in retail packages. Once received, we individually bag each seed package in an air-tight zip lock bag with a small Silica Gel Desiccant package. The individually bagged seed packets are then stored in larger air-tight zip lock bags with a larger Silica Gel Desiccant package. They are then stored in a cool, dark temperature regulated storage area until they are sold to you!
