SEED COLLECTIONS

$23 / collection, or $55 / 3 collections

Let's be a little wild, just a little unwieldy cause, why not?! Grow Wild is a series of seed collections curated by The Patio Farmer. It is meant to challenge what we know to be familiar, to gain new ground, to grow more.


As a wild grower, you will receive a packet of seeds for three (sometimes four) unique crops bundled into several "themes." Included with each collection is a digital resource for knowing how to sow, grow, tend and harvest from these seeds. 


Between January 25 and March 22 three new Grow Wild seed collections will be announced every two weeks for a total of 15, unique seed collections. Some collections are based on "origins" and have geographic inspiration. Others are inspired by colors, others still are in a category all their own. That's the fun of being wild, finding what you like and doing it! 

If you're looking for containers and soil and other supplies for growing these seeds, look under the "supplies" tab of the Order Form. Grabbing a 3-pack of grow bags and a bag or two of soil is a great compliment to any collection.
