NEW FOR 2018: FARM-ORIGINALS, HEIRLOOMS, AND COMMERCIAL STANDARDS

These are our New Additions for 2018, and as always they include our latest on-farm breeding refinements, and some good proven varieties that organic growers have found reliable and adaptive.

We have chosen not to seek PVP or other intellectual property protection for our original varieties. We have studied, argued, consulted, and meditated on the relative virtues and hazards of IP protection in the food sector of life. We've tried recently to contrive some variation on the use of Creative Commons 'Copyleft' or Open Source Software models to provide open forum use of crop genetics, without fear that corporate entities will Patent what others have freely offered. This turns out to be extremely complicated, completely untested in the courts, and fraught with real world differences between creative intellect, software code, and new seeds for food crops. To begin with, seeds are alive, and the rest is not.

On April 17th 2014, Wild Garden Seed joined with High Mowing Seed and public breeders at three Land Grant Universities (Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin) to release seeds of our own breeding under the auspices of the Open Source Seed Initiative, OSSI. The purpose of OSSI is to create an ethically bounded genetic commons. The OSSI Free Seed Pledge does by public intention what only endless contracts can do in law. See this OSSI essay more details.
New original varieties will be part of the official 2018 OSSI varietal release this spring.

Regardless, these new crop cultivars, their genetics, and the traits they express are freely offered to the Public Domain, and they are not intended for any kind of privatization or ownership by others, though others may use them in their breeding, farming, or garden-related enterprises. Wild Garden Seed appreciates recognition for its breeding work by those who use it.

Mrihani x Opal F3 Population Basil

Mrihani x Opal F3 Population Basil

Farm Original Variety! OSSI Pledged Variety When we first grew 'Mrihani' basil three years ago the toothy savoyed leaves reminded me of 'Ruffles' basil. I wondered if I might recreate 'Purple Ruffles' by crossing 'Mrihani' with Opal basil. Sure enough, the F1 cross looked like a giant version of 'Purple Ruffles' with an extraordinary aroma completely unlike Ruffles. In 2017 the F2 generation segregated into purple, green, and variegated types with big toothy savoyed leaves, and the same color range with smaller, flatter, dentate leaves. These seeds are for the F3 generation which will show all of this variation and more. Growers in areas afflicted by downy mildew will likely find resistance in this population. Farm Original Variety!

Wild Mignonette

Wild Mignonette

Also known as Yellow Mignonette for its creamy showering flower spikes.

(We apologize for this error that began with misidentified stock seed.) Dye is extracted from the leaves, flowers, and seedpods. The seeds are shiny, luscious, and attractive to hold. Perhaps our most attractive insectary plant. Bees go absolutely bonkers for this plant, and consequently I find myself staring into it to see what all the fuss is about. Likely to self sow.

Cupani Sweet Pea

Cupani Sweet Pea

1695. Also called 'Cupani Original' in reference to its status as the most primitive form of the fragrant garden sweet pea, named for discoverer Father Francis Cupani, a Sicilian monk who found it as a fragrant wildling growing near his monastery ca. 1695, and published an account of it. By 1700 seeds for this fragrant wild pea had made their way to London and Amsterdam, and on to Linnaeus in time to be part of his 1753 publication, Species Plantarum, Volume 2. It is reported that all of the original Old Spice varieties (which is what we sell), and all of the improvements since, come from the 'Cupani Original.'

Purple Top Verbena

Purple Top Verbena

As far as I can tell there are no true varieties of this species, Purple Top Verbena and Tall Verbena (or Vervain) being just common names for this South American species. Stunning and uniform none the less. These are perennial in zones 7-9, but grow to flowering so quickly that they are treated as annuals by most cut flower growers. 2-3' tall, 12" spacing and pinching is recommended. Darkness necessary for germination, so either plant 4x deeper than the seed diameter or cover flats with plastic.
