[ About the Can ] [ Frequently Asked Questions ]
- Important Survival Vegetables (ISVs) are staple crops based on their nutritional and/or caloric composition, for their potential high yield to garden space ratio, or for their ability to improve the soil.
The seeds included in the Canned Victory Garden™ are all open-pollinated and either open-source or public domain. All can be grown to maturity and allowed to produce seeds potentially supplying you with an endless supply for your future gardens; like an "insurance policy" for a sustainable, personal food source. These varieties are also selected for their ability to grow under a broad range of climates and gardening conditions.
Some vendors are selling similar products with names like “Survival Seed Packs” and “Seed Banks” and are making deceitful and dishonest claims regarding the shelf life. (Refer to our position on long-term storage of seeds at home.) They are misleading people into thinking that you can buy seeds, toss them on a shelf, and forget about them until the SHTF. This is a profit-motivated, dangerous disservice! To be clear, all seeds are living organisms with lifespans that vary by their species. Stored properly, they can survive for years, but seeds are intended to be grown, and garden skills are meant to be developed like any other skill set. If you are a novice gardener or seed saver, check out this resource. Good reference books are also a valuable investment. Click here for some recommendations.
There is no such thing as a "one size fits all" garden seed collection. Any kit or collection will not consider personal taste preferences, your specific garden conditions, or your skill level. Our Canned Victory Garden™ is simply a response to the many requests we have received over the years for a quick and easy way of ordering a broad selection of seeds. If you are seeking the "perfect" Victory Garden, visit our catalog and order exactly the varieties that you want. If you want something easy to purchase without having to spend the time placing a large order, here you go.

About The Can - Our can contains only fresh seeds packed for the current year, that meet or exceed state and federal standards. Each seed packet is labeled with growing instructions. The packets are enclosed (not vacuum packed) in a one gallon, sturdy, re-closable metal can with three desiccant packs to maintain a low humidity level. You must store the seeds in a location that remains consistently cool and dry to ensure maximum longevity and viability. A "Clyde's Garden Planner" is included to help you plan your garden.
Note: We do not keep these Garden Cans sitting around on the shelf. Cans are made to order with seeds packaged for the current year. Please allow 7 to 10 business days from the time we receive your order to the time it is mailed.
When planning a garden to supply your nutritional and caloric needs, consider the space that you have, the time you can spend, the length of your growing season and the nutritional value of what you are planning to grow (refer to links on the left). Also consider planting and maintaining various nut and fruit trees, berries and grapes.
Canned Victory Garden™ orders are processed as a special order under the terms and conditions of sale as described on the Order Information Page.
