Organic, Natural, and or Biological Seed Production: Design By Nature has seed derived from Organic farms. As this seed is blended with seed from conventional or non organic farms, we cannot claim that our seed is organic. However most of our seed is produced from natural ecosystems.

All crops are available to be inspected by DAF ( IRL) for disease. Wildflowers do have disease problems and every effort is made to collect and propagate from healthy stock. However to date our crops have had no notifiable diseases. Common diseases are rust, mildew and dust mite.
