Heirloom Vegetables Discussion Forum

Communities > Forums > Heirloom Vegetables
A plant (mainly vegetable) is considered an "heirloom" if the strain has been in existence for over 50 years. Gardeners interested in preserving and growing heirloom plants gather here, as well as our main Vegetable Gardening, Tomatoes and Peppers forums.

Many books have been written on the fascinating subject of heirlooms - check them out here.
Let the Watchdog help you locate sources for all your heirloom seeds.
