Welcome to Mrs. David's Garden Seeds® where we will learn about gardening, farming, and homesteading together.
Hi! I'm Mrs Davids Garden Seeds®. My name is Juanita and I have been married to David of David's Garden Seeds® for more than 34 years. When we had our first seed store, David's office was right next to the seed showroom so David was involved in helping our customers. The company has grown a lot since then. My office is in the store now and David is out in the back forty or in a different building, running our company. He no longer has the time to spend answering gardening questions so I do that.
At first, customers would ask me who I was, wondering if I had any qualifications to help them or if I were just a salesgirl making minimum wage. One day, a gentleman was asking me the same questions over and over again in our showroom about gardening. I was trying to be kind and patient, but he was making it tough to do. Finally, he came out and asked me who I was that he should listen to my recommendations. I told him, "I'm Mrs. David's Garden Seeds®." He accepted that and since then, the name has stuck.
Hi Everyone! Thank you for visiting my website! I am Mrs. David's Garden Seeds® and I think you should know that there is a wonderful seed company in the great state of Texas called David's Garden Seeds®. We have been in business for over 12 years now.
Our business started in our home in San Antonio in September of 2009. By 2015, we had 8 employees working in my home every day and David found a storefront in San Antonio and moved the business there. We grew and David moved to a bigger storefront in 2017. In 2019, we found a beautiful farm out in Poteet. David and I moved our home out there. We love farm life.
In 2020, we moved our company out to the farm. We have a beautiful farm store filled with seeds, a gazebo with a pond filled with koi fish for you to visit and a working farm for you to tour. Come by and visit us at 5029 FM 2504 in Poteet, Texas. Or you can order seeds online from our user-friendly new website, www.davidsgardenseeds.com.
For 20 years, from 1999 through 2019, David and I lived in San Antonio, Texas. We raised our family and all of our children have left home. We have been empty-nesters for seven years, except for our three dogs--Annabelle, Lucy, and Ethel, and our cat, Kitty.
Two years ago, in July of 2019, we bought the farm outside of Poteet and moved here. In July of 2020, we moved our business to the farm. This year, 2021, someone dropped off a pitbull dog so now we have four dogs. Molly is the new dog's name.
Ten years ago (2009), David founded David's Garden Seeds®. I have been a part of the team since the beginning, writing the company website, doing social media, and helping David when I got home from work with whatever needed to be done.
On February 29, 2016, I quit my day job and started working at David's Garden Seeds® full time. I have never regretted that decision. We have a great team.
One thing that we talked about for years is getting some land so we can grow more of our own seeds to sell and plant a lot more in our garden. It is hard to have a big garden when you live in a subdivision in a city with a small lot.
A few weeks ago (June of 2019), we found a beautiful piece of farmland outside of the city and we now have a land contract. We are ready to purchase a small farm and move to the country. The business will eventually make the move as well but first, we have to move there and get it all ready for the business. The only things there right now are sandy soil, wildflowers, weeds with stickers, and lots of bugs.
David and I bought tall rubber boots and walked the property yesterday. Once the weeds are cut, it will be very nice, but yesterday it was hard keeping stickers off of us. It took us 40 minutes to break through the jungle and go all the way to the top and back.
It will be quite a journey as we move out of the city and turn four acres of sandy soil into a home/farm/business. I will keep you posted. Follow along, won't you?
You can pick up from here to see what we did each day we have been on the farm.
We are David's Garden Seeds®. If you need great seeds, we've got about 1500 varieties to choose from.
