Do you know about Botanical Interests? If not, you should – especially if you like to start flowers and vegetables from seed. This seed company has over 600 items to choose from, with a strong emphasis on heirloom and organic varieties.
Botanical Interests was also an active and generous sponsor of the 2019 Garden Bloggers Fling.
In fact the flingers were invited to visit the Botanical Interests facility in Broomfield, a few miles outside Denver.
As it was a Saturday, things were quiet. We were divided into two groups, each led by either Judy Seaborn or Curtis Jones, the husband-and-wife team who run the company. The two started Botanical Interests out of their home in 1995.
That’s a lot of boxes.
Did I mention the 600 varieties?
The Botanical Interests seed packets are miniature works of art.
Lots of high tech equipment for counting, sorting, and testing seeds.
On our way out we noticed that the border of the parking lot was planted with seeds carried by the company.
Many thanks to Botanical Interests owners Judy Seaborn and Curtis Jones for their support of the Garden Bloggers Fling, and for letting us see their business from the inside.
