Spring 2023 Opening

If you're like us, you love to support local businesses; especially when you can relate to their mission. Which is why we are proud to feature seeds fromn Decorah, Iowa.

Your Local Source for Organic and Heirloom Seed Stock

Since 1975, Seed Savers Exchange has grown, saved, and shared heirloom seeds and led a movement to both protect biodiversity and preserve heirloom varieties. Their seed bank now houses more than 20,000 rare, open-pollinated varieties.

By stocking their seeds in the Dogpatch Garden Center, we can support their mission while getting their seeds in gardens throughout the Des Moines metro.

I hand select all the seeds for our flower and vegetable plants. And we've sown many of the same seeds in our Dogpatch garden plots over multiple growing seasons. So I know they'll thrive and produce well for you here in the Des Moines metro region.”
