4. Seed Selection
- lets do this collectively - on the KWUH website in the Forums section I have set up a Forum called "Seed Selection" Here we can brainstorm what seeds we want. Our restrictions are that the seeds must come from a certified organic source and preferably a Canadian source. When you list what seed type you like, please also list from which seed distributor and provide a link so I know where to order from when that time comes.
