Heirloom Seeds Review:

ALL SURVIVAL SEED BANKS IN ONE PLACE!!


We’ve done the research work for you.

We’ve done the work for you.

Which is the #1 Heirloom Seed Company?

The heirloom seed industry is exploding. Finding the best value and highest quality of seed can use up a lot of your limited time. We have experts in the field of gardening, small farming and heirloom vegetable seeds. Over the past several months we have purchased seeds from dozens of heirloom seed companies in order to evaluate their service and product. We are not fond of seed companies that package their seeds in a foil bag as though they are toxic.

We also wonder if over time, these foil bags will trap moisture and cause the seed to rot inside and out of sight. Only www.survivalseedbank.com uses the traditional and tested procedure of acid free paper envelopes. Their beans are packed in see through zip lock bags. Now, we’d like to share our findings with you.

OUR BEST VALUE – WINNER #1 Heirloom Seed Company

Survival Seed Bank

22 Varieties, 1.4 lbs, $165, Shockingly, we had only a 75% germination rate with the 22 varieties offered by this marketing company.
This seller appears to be a marketing company that sells a variety of products from books, solar panels and stoves.

www.SurvivalistSeeds.com

50 Varieties, 10,000 seeds, 4.5 lbs, $159
The seed quality was perfect and we had 100% germination from the ten of each varieties (500 tested).

Emergency Seed Bank

23 Varieties, 35000 seeds, 1.4 lbs seeds. $119
The majority of seed, which got the count to 35,000 was mostly cheap lettuce seed. The varieties were among the least expensive among the heirloom industry. 92% germination of the 230 tested.

Heirloom Organics

23 Varieties, 30000 seeds, 1 lbs, $120, 88% germination from the 230 tested.
The same manufacturer as previous seller, just different label.

Heirloom Seed Kit

50 varieties, and 1,250 heirloom vegetable seeds. 98% germination. The variety selection was excellent but the price per seed was significantly higher than www.survivalistseeds.com

If you are wanting a nice 1/2 acre heritage garden this might be the way to do it for under $100.

Nitro Pac

16 Varieties, 1 lb, $55, 95% germination of the 160 tested.
If you want a single raised bed garden and you were on a limited income this might be an option.

Stockpile Seeds

20 Varieties, 3000 seeds, $79, 96% germination from the 200 tested.
Too few seed varieties and not a good value.

OUR HIGHEST QUALITY SEED – WINNER

www.SurvivalistSeeds.com  100% germination. Well packaged and seems to be a family owned business rather than a marketing company.

OUR FASTEST DELIVERY – WINNER

www.SurvivalistSeeds.com  Arriving 4 days after ordering.

OUR BEST SERVICE – WINNER

www.SurvivalistSeeds.com  Friendly and personal presentation and the only company that offers its phone number.
