Do you have a special someone to woo on this Valentine’s Day? Rather than the typical box of chocolates or bouquet of flowers, consider the gift that keeps on giving: heirloom seeds! In addition to providing us with wonderful flavors, stunning beauty and the genetic diversity needed for agricultural sustainability, their beautiful and unique names offer us a clever way to delight our Valentine gardeners. So let some of our heirloom seeds do the talking for you! Here are a few great examples cooked up by the crafty Seed Savers Exchange staff.
First of all, make sure to tell that special someone just how much you lovage them ...
...and how they’ll always be your Valentine Sunflower...
because you've been struck by Cupid's Arrow!
a box of Sweet Chocolate,
or some Candy?
So prove to your Valentine you have a Heart of Gold
by treating your Garden Sunshine
like an Empress,
with a romantic Candlelight dinner,
while watching the Sunset.
Finally, turn what was once your Flame,
into your King
by giving a precious Gem, or,
dare we say- a Diamond?
