Like all Ferry-Morse seeds, the Organic Collection seeds are Non-GMO and Non-Neonic, which means they are free of neonicotinoid chemicals, which are harmful to pollinators.

“As prices remain high at the grocery store, gardening remains a great way to save money and enjoy the freshest foods possible,” said Rebecca Sears, CMO & Resident Green Thumb for Ferry-Morse. “For those who prioritize organic choices, whether for their health or the environment, we’re excited to offer more choices than ever that leave our gardeners and their wallets feeling satisfied.”

Ferrymorse.com now features more than 100 Organic vegetable, fruit, and herb seed varieties, including:

  • Organic Sweet Basil – a hardy variety perfect for adding a bit of sweetness and spice to a Caprese salad or a cheesy omelet.
  • Organic Brandywine Red Tomatoes – an heirloom tomato plant that offers extremely tasty, large tomatoes that’ll add a sweet flavor to sandwiches, salsas, and soups.
  • Organic Dwarf Blue Curled Kale – a versatile crop that’s easy to grow in spring or early fall. Sauté in olive oil and garlic for a tasty side dish, or air fry a few leaves to make fresh kale chips.
  • Organic Boston Pickling Cucumber – a classic heirloom that, as the name suggests, is perfect for homemade pickles. Enjoy slices of this crisp, juicy variety in any favorite salad recipe or as part of an epic barbecue spread.
  • Organic Coriander Cilantro – a must-have herb that adds unique and complex flavor to many recipes, like garlic shrimp or grilled chicken with a fresh squeeze of lime.

PlantlingsTM Collection Returns for 2024

Gardeners who prefer transplants can take advantage of Ferry-Morse’s popular PlantlingsTM collection, back for the spring season. Gardeners can choose from over 100 varieties of vegetable, herb, fruit, flower, and indoor baby plants, which will be delivered straight from the Ferry-Morse nursery to their front doors beginning in March.

Plantlings have been started by Ferry-Morse’s expert gardeners and arrive with strong, established root systems to empower consumers without the time or space needed for seed starting to grow thriving plants. Highlights from this season’s collection include:

  • Snapdragon Twinny Peach PlantlingsPlus – a stunning plant with butterfly-like flowers that offer a peachy hue and full, ruffled blooms.
  • Passion Fruit Lantana Plantlings – a vibrant, pollinator-friendly flower that will endure high temperatures, humidity, and other challenging conditions.
  • Midnight Snack Tomato Plantlings – a snackable cherry tomato variety that can be enjoyed straight off the vine, in your favorite pasta recipe, or on a slice of avocado toast. When exposed to sunlight, these tomatoes display a blushing of black-purple on their skin – perfect for dipping your toe into goth gardening this year.
  • Philodendron Cordatum Heartleaf Plantlings – a charming, low-maintenance houseplant that offers trailing vines of heart-shaped, glossy leaves. Enjoy its vibrant green foliage in a hanging basket or admire them on a shelf amongst your favorite mementos.

Also returning this year are Ferry-Morse’s Plantlings Gardening Kits, which cover a range of culinary and floral themes to cater to gardeners’ unique interests. New kits added to the collection include the Hot Peppers Plantling Kit and the SunPatiens® Compact Forever Summer Mix with shades that will complement any garden inspired by the color of the year: Peach Fuzz. Kits retail for $39.99 to $49.99 and include 12 baby plants.

Plantlings are available for pre-order on ferrymorse.com now and will begin shipping on March 13. Plantlings will be available through June or while supplies last, and all orders will be shipped two-day to ensure quality.
