Our Fall Seasonal Shipping season is here! Fall-planted Perennial Onions are easier to grow than bulbing onions, and make great use of your garden space through the winter months. Discover the incredible flavor range of homegrown Garlic.

Yellow potato onions are a rare southern multiplier best planted in fall. In past generations these long storing, high yielding onions were a kitchen and garden staple throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
Sow your fall garden with winter hardy greens like kale, spinach, mizuna, creasy greens, tatsoi and arugula. We also make multiple sowings of lettuce for winter harvest. In empty beds not used for the fall garden, we sow cover crops like clover/rye or sorghum sudan to prepare the soil for next spring's crops.
Gardeners further south or planting under cover may fall sow roots like carrots, beets, turnips and Asian radishes. See our Fall and Winter Gardening Tips for guidelines on planting dates.

Mexican Sour Gherkins are another great addition to salads as well as for snacking. They are to cucumbers as cherry tomatoes are to beefsteaks.
We're adding a green bean, Maxibel, one of the best french gourmet beans, to our offerings. The Piggott Pea, an heirloom southern pea from the Piggott family in Louisiana, is also now available. Piggott peas are early, productive, drought-resistant, and flavorful.
