Welcome to our new website! Online ordering has become progressively important for our customers, and we wanted to give them the full range of our native seeds online in a format that makes ordering easy.

About Roundstone Native Seed

Roundstone Native Seed has been growing and supplying high quality regionally adapted Native Seeds to the Eastern half of the US for over 20 years.  We are farmers and conservationists and have grown from a small family-owned business to one of the largest seed providers in the East.  Our success can be attributed to our commitment to clean high quality seed, development of Ecotypes adapted to each region we serve, and an experienced and knowledgeable staff dedicated  to friendly helpful service.  We focus on quality and service because every success we bring our Customers is a living demonstration and an incentive for others to use natives.

We have a large selection of native seeds, seed mixes, naturalized seeds, and plant materials for any need you might have.  Regardless of whether you’re a landscape architect, contractor, wildlife enthusiast, conservationist, home gardener wanting wildflowers in your yard, or a farm owner looking to satisfy the requirements of a Farm Bill Program, we have the quality products you need and we would be more than happy to talk with you, answer your questions, and share our knowledge about natives with you.

Why Choose Seed from Roundstone?

Reason 1: Clean, High Quality Seed

Quality isn’t a buzz word at Roundstone Native Seed – It’s WHAT WE DO and WHAT WE BELIEVE.  We strive in every way possible to supply the highest quality seed available.  We know that if your seed is no good, won’t germinate, is full of trash, contains lots of weed seeds, It won’t matter how hard you work to prepare your site, or how much effort and expense you put into controlling competition, you simply won’t be successful.

Our insistence on quality includes such things as annual controlled burns, control of weeds in the production fields, testing for optimum harvest time, heat control at harvest and in drying, having 17 precise cleaning and separation operations available, vacuum seed transfer, debearding to facilitate cleaning, temperature and humidity controlled storage, and scientific collection for Certified Seed Testing.

Reason 2:  Development of Regional Ecotype Seed

Ecotype seeds are simply seeds from parent stock that has evolved over time and adapted to your area; to your soils, geology, temperature, rainfall, elevation, insects, disease, pests, and the other environmental factors where you are.  They just grow better.

At Roundstone we are emphasizing the development of Regional Ecotypes for an ever increasing number of species.  We have established production sites and grower alliances in 7 states and numerous and expanding regional environments, especially in the Southeast.

Reason 3:  Experienced Staff and Helpful Advice

Our greatest asset is Our Team.  Roundstone was founded by experienced farmers and Conservationists and in following their visions, we are extremely fortunate to have assembled a team of such talented, knowledgeable, and experienced professionals to grow Roundstone.  If you have questions about seed selection, establishment, maintenance, or anything about what to expect, these folks will be pleased to try to help you.  Just contact us!

Reason 4:  Over 300 Species and 125 Standard Mixes

We currently have seed for over 300 species and have 125 standard mixes in inventory.  We are focused on expanding our regional ecotypes both in number of species and in regions we serve.  While we now mostly serve the eastern half of the US, we are diligently developing production and producer alliances to allow us to move westward with our products.
