Welcome! This site is a resource of the Victory Seed Company and used to store information about our mission and our organization.

We built our original web site in late 1998 and went live on the internet in January of 1999. That website evolved and grew over the years to a point where it had become cluttered and difficult to navigate. So in 2010, during a much needed "remodel," we decided to split our internet presence into several specialized web sites. They include:

  • VictorySeeds.com - Although it represents our "store" and is our primary means of generating financial support for the seed variety preservation work that we do, it is much more than that.  Along with our Victory Seeds® brand of rare and heirloom seeds, you will find tons of photos, gardening information, and well researched, well documented plant histories.

  • WebGrower.com - In 2013, we created this site as an informational storehouse for the benefit of our gardening friends and supporters. The primary content is organized by state to make it easier to find the answers you need. This is a work in progress and is continually being improved upon.

  • SaveSeeds.org is the online home of the Victory Horticultural Library and the Seedsman Hall of Fame.  This is a strictly not-for-profit project that is funded by proceeds from the Victory Seed Company's sales and whose purpose is to preserve, protect and present horticultural history.

  • VintageVeggies.com - "You are here!" This site basically exists to provide a place to store all of the support documentation for our main store site. The intent is to keep VictorySeeds.com as streamlined and fast as possible.

The Victory Seed Company is a small, family owned and operated organization that works to preserve plant varieties by locating, growing, documenting and offering heirloom and rare open-pollinated seeds to home gardeners. We grow seeds on our farm and help to support other seed farmers by purchasing from our network of growers.

Our heirloom seed variety preservation work is supported by sales from our store web site as well as from private donations.

Thank you for recommending us to your friends and family and for financially supporting our work through your orders.  We hope that you have a great gardening season and look forward to being of service to you in the future!

Mini FAQ

Every year, people from all over the world send us their cherished seed varieties.

Although our grow out schedules are tight, we do fit in quite a few "new" varieties each year.

We eventually trial them and make as many as possible available to gardeners.
