The Jammu and Kashmir
Medicinal Plants Introduction Centre-JKMPIC specialises in seeds and plants
that are the backbone of organic and permaculture systems. These include a wide
range of open-pollinated, heirloom medicinal, fruit, herbal, vegetable seeds,
rare edibles, living mulches, green manures and insectary plants for beneficial
We specialise in high
quality seed with a guaranteed viability and purity and so we appreciate very
much when gardeners let us if know they have an occasional problem with seed
germination. This allows us to further improve our growing information and
triggers additional germination testing to pinpoint any problems. Germination
testing is carried out on a regular basis to check that the viability of seed
is being maintained throughout the year.
Our seeds are nearly all
open-pollinated and so are able to be grown again from seed you save yourself.
Open-pollinated seeds are genetically diverse treasures that have been passed
on from generation to generation. When you buy and plant open-pollinated seeds
you are helping to protect this valuable resource for the future.
Saving open-pollinated (OP)
seeds protects our global food heritage.Growing open pollinated seeds and
saving some for next year's crop is a practical and economical option for home
Most of our open-pollinated
seeds are also considered heirloom or heritage seed. These are herb, flower and
vegetable varieties that were bred and handed down by generations of gardeners
and farmers. These varieties have stood the test of time, gardeners have saved
them year after year because they were recognised for their superior qualities
such as great flavour, good yield or disease resistance.
Our seeds and other
materials are packed in simple plain paper, 90 mm x 145 mm, re-sealable packets
with an inner cliplock plastic bag that is also resealable. Our intention is to
avoid as much as possible glossy paper and full-colour printing due to its
greater environmental impact. The paper packets can be composted. The inner
cliplock bag helps greatly to maintain the seed's viability as it resists
moisture far better than just a paper packet alone. Each Packet
contains 50-100 seeds.
Seed packets are printed
with detailed growing information to help you with successful seed raising. In
addition a free leaflet Successful Seed Raising Guide is provided with each
