Our seeds are Wild Harvested from the Native Milkweed Plant in Kentucky. All natural, Non GMO, Organic seeds.

NOTE: Milkweed will require a 30 day cold/damp stratification period in the refrigerator prior to planting.

Growing your plants or flower garden from seed not only saves a ton of money, it is the most rewarding as well! Gardeners should understand that most plants have built in dormancy mechanisms that will prevent the seed from germinating until the time is right ( nature's time). This amazing feature prevents a population of plants from germinating all at once, before killing frosts, or in times of drought. To germinate native plants, a gardener needs to break this dormancy period before the seeds will sprout.

Dried Milkweed has a long history of use as an herbal remedy. Common Milkweed has been known to help with a variety of ailments and is used in Teas, tinctures and extracts. Many uses come from tradition and culture passed down from Native Americans.
