Raised Bed Vegetable Garden Seed Collection
Grow a bountiful vegetable garden—even if space is limited. This collection includes 10 varieties of vegetable seeds that thrive in raised garden beds or other small urban settings. The rich, loose soil in these beds allows for robust vegetable rooting that can't always be achieved in open ground. Plants can be grown closer together and often suffer less pest damage because of their proximity to each other and distance from the ground.

- Open-pollinated varieties allow you to save the seeds from each year’s harvest to plant the next year.
