This is more like five reasons that St Clare’s Seeds is my favorite. However, I have a giveaway at the end so, keep reading.
SEEDS- Well, this might seem obvious, given the company name, but they really have wonderful, GMO-free, heirloom seeds. The seeds are all carefully picked and packaged. There are even organic seeds available. The prices are extremely reasonable, including a $4 flat rate shipping. There are so many seed catalogs, but I wonder about their quality and when the seeds were actually packed.
INFORMATION–The website is packed with helpful information, but it doesn’t stop there. The seed packets have the most well written and in depth instructions I have ever seen for seeds. They don’t just say, “Plant when soil warms.” They give you additional information, recommendations, and any special handling required for the seed.
CUSTOMER SERVICE–I have emailed St Clare’s Seeds several times. I not only received a prompt answer, but it was courteous and thorough. I have a heart for small businesses mostly because they care for their customers, not just the bottom line.
AUDIOBOOKS–Wait? What? St Clare’s is more than just seeds and garden items. They have a growing collection of family friendly audiobooks for great prices. I have an ever expanding wishlist for Christmas gifts for the kids. These are rich classics and timeless Catholic stories. Many are out of print but are now available to us through St Clare’s.
When I contacted St Clare’s because I accidentally ordered two packets of seeds that just are conducive to my garden and area, they not only let me pick replacements, but allowed me to keep the originals to pass on and shipped the new ones for free. So, I am giving away the seed packets. Just comment below on which you would like to receive along with your favorite find on the St Clare’s Heirloom Seeds website.
