BBB Seed is a big supporter of Colorado’s Plant a Row for the Hungry campaign.
For the last two years, BBB Seed has donated thousands of vegetable and herb seeds to metro Denver’s Plant a Row for the Hungry gardening campaign.
But the company has much more to offer gardeners than its complete line of heirloom vegetable seeds.
In addition to Aunt Ruby’s German green tomatoes, Orange Sun and Sweet Chocolate peppers, and Black Beauty eggplant, BBB seed carries a line of native wildflower seed, cool and warm season grasses, and grass and wildflower mixes.
One special mix gardeners will be interested in this year is the Honey Source Wildflower mix.
The Honey Source combination of seeds was specially created as help for honey bees. It contains a long-blooming mix of nectar and pollen-rich annuals and perennials that attract bees to the garden and that are beautiful, too.
There’s a nice selection of other special use wildflower mixes, including regional seed mixes.
Each seed mixture lives up to its Beauty Beyond Belief description and includes annuals, perennials, natives, and introduced wildflowers known to grow well in states throughout the Rocky Mountain West.
When I was in Boulder picking up the company’s Plant a Row seed donation, I had the chance to meet Head Honcho Mike Wade and Garden Girl Cheryl Soldati Clark. Cheryl took me on a tour of the warehouse.
…shelves lined with large bags of bulk flower seeds…
…and bins filled with wildflower seeds ready to be shipped.
I even got to watch as Trey hand-packed packets of the Honey Source mix.
BBB Seed has also added some nice items for gift-giving including handcrafted wildflower soaps, a beautiful line of wildflower greeting cards, and gift baskets in two sizes. I was happy to see the 1/2 peck basket includes one bag of Authentic Haven Brand Moo Poo Tea.
The company certainly lives up to its tagline: “We specialize in beauty for your garden and heirlooms for your health!”
