Victory Seeds® Newsletter - Spring 2014, Memorial Day / Spring Promo Offer


Hello Friends,

Now that the gardening season is in full swing and many of us here in the United States are using this Memorial Day Weekend holiday to catch up on gardening and chores around the house, I thought that this would be a good opportunity to send out a long overdue newsletter.

Since the last one in December, a lot has been going on.  If you are one of our gardening friends that "Like" us on Facebook or read the blog, you already know that we lost one of our close family members.  You can read more about that here.  On a happier note, a week after my Mom passed away, we welcomed a new grandson into the family.

You can imagine, such life events have forced me to really stop and spend time thinking about the "big picture."  Life is a complex and precious thing that begins and ends with something as seemingly trivial as one single breath.  The lesson I got from this experience is the reminder that we need to make every breath in between those first and last ones really count!

As a family, we have been working through the change in dynamics and getting used to our new normal life.  As a company, we remain committed to the path we chose decades ago and endeavor to preserve and protect as much of our collective horticultural heritage as we possibly can.


If you found some extra space in your yard that needs filling or you forgot something on your last order, it is not too late.  And right now, we are getting orders out in a day or two at the latest, sometimes the same day.

For all of you who are just getting to know us (and as a reminder to our longtime supporters) if you are interested in keeping closer tabs on what is going on around the farm and at the Victory Seed Company, we have been using various online services to get the news out [ Our blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube ]. Please join in the conversations.

Until next time, gardening success to you,

  

Mike Dunton

Recent Awards

For the fifth consecutive year, thanks to all of your feedback, we have won the Garden Watchdog Top 5 award in the heirloom seed and vegetable seed categories. New for this year, we also ranked in two additional categories.

And as of this writing, we are currently holding the number 12 position for overall best mail order gardening company out of the  7,713 listed!

This is so exciting! With your positive feedback, we continue to inch closer to the number one slot!

Thank you for taking the time to support our seed variety preservation work in this simple but significant way!


Exciting new offering - 'Glass Gem' corn is an amazingly beautiful, translucent, multicolored corn.

Two years ago, photos of this rare variety went viral on the internet. Although they  were awesome, the images just did not do justice to what I was able to see by holding an ear in my own hand. The colors displayed are rare in the plant world, let alone all contained upon one ear of corn.

Other seed suppliers are trying to cash in on this variety's current rarity and popularity by charging extremely high prices (up to $4.99 for 20 seeds!). We do not believe in "profiteering." Our packets each contain a full 0.5 ounce, which is about 100 seeds.

We have a very limited supply for 2014 so if you are interested, order soon and don't procrastinate.  You can also find all of the other interesting varieties that are new for 2014 by clicking here.


Highlighting Our Seed Variety Preservation Work - Although we work to preserve many older, rare, open-pollinated seed varieties, keeping them available to home gardeners, protecting true heirlooms - old family varieties - is the foundation of our mission. Click here for a link to some of the family heirloom varieties that we not only protect, but that we introduced commercially to home gardeners.


Highlighting Our Educational Resources - Spending time at our online store (www.VictorySeeds.com), I hope that you get the impression that we care about history, true research and documentation.  On the product pages, we share what we learn about the histories and pedigrees of the varieties that we offer. This is an ongoing effort and information is updated as it is discovered.  We also have two other, purely educational, websites available to you.

  • WebGrower.com - Our gardening information website. Although it primarily hosts a ton of North American gardening information, I have started to assemble other country specific pages.  Check back from time to time.

  • SaveSeeds.org is a pet project of mine that I don't get a lot of time to work on but one that I feel is very important.  This is a direct offshoot of the research work that we do as part of our seed variety preservation work.  Here you will find "The Seedsman Hall of Fame," various seed company histories, and the online version of the "Victory Horticultural Library."

Share Your Experience and Make Our Site Better - Although your orders are what keep our bills paid and directly support our seed variety preservation work, there are other ways that you can help.  For example, if you garden with Victory Seeds®, you can make the site more useful to everyone by sharing pictures, your experiences and writing a review.  Reviewing a variety is simple.  Just revisit the variety's product page and look for the following link [ Review this item].

About Our Work - If you have read our mission statement, you know that we do not exist as an organization to sell seeds.  We sell seeds to fund our plant variety preservation work and to keep rare, heirloom and open-pollinated varieties available to home gardeners.  We are a little different from other seed companies in this way.  Thank you for your continued support.
