OVERVIEW: We're excited to share new inspirations and solutions for the 2024 growing season with you! Join our Product Managers as they present an assortment of the latest additions to our lineup.

Every year, work on our catalog starts with seeds in the ground for our rigorous trialing program. This work occurs on our research farm in Maine and the farms of growing partners across the country. This season, on our farm alone, our product team planted and evaluated 3,396 varieties across more than 9 miles of trial beds to ensure we select and offer only the best. We bolster our selection process by talking to farmers and gardeners year-round to understand better what they are facing, what has worked, and what they need new solutions for.

Learn why we selected these standouts above so many others and why we hope you'll be giving them a try in the upcoming season!
