The Members’ Seed Pack consists of eight packs of pre-selected native seeds, representing some of our most popular species as well as some interesting and unusual native species that can be hard to come by.

If you live outside this area, we may be able to help you find sources of native seeds in your region.

The fruits are slightly ridged, measure 1.5-2″ long and 3-3.7″ wide, and weigh 2-4.5 ounces. Moderately vining plants have distinctly lobed leaves and dense foliage.

Instructions – When growing plants on a trellis, space seed 6-8″ apart and thin plants as necessary; train plants to climb the trellis with an initial guidance. Alternatively, make 12″ hills at least 6′ apart. Plant 6-8 cucumber seeds per hill 1″ deep. After germination, thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Can also be started indoors 2-4 weeks before last frost.
