The Color of Seed Packets, by LO


One thing that helps me endure these long, rainy winter months, is dreaming about and planning my garden.  Recently, a friend, and fellow gardener, turned me onto The Hudson Valley Seed Library.  They collect heirloom seeds from the Hudson Valley region of New York.  They know the growers of their seeds, which ensures no pesticides or genetically modification going on.

The Hudson Valley Seed Library strives to do two things:

To create an accessible and affordable source of regionally-adapted seeds that is maintained by a community of caring farmers and gardeners; and,

To create gift-quality seed packs featuring works designed by New York artists in order to celebrate the beauty of heirloom gardening.


Look how awesome these seed packets are, and how beautifully they go with the YOLO Colorhouse palette.  Featuring artwork designed by New York artists, they unfold in a flower-like fashion, revealing an inner pack of seeds. They are printed using green inks on sturdy recycled and FSC-certified paper stock.

    Why can’t we get any range of medium to dark blue colors in Yolo products?
    Like the color of “Borage” displayed in one of the above graphics.

      Hi gulriz – You can match any color that you want into YOLO products, just take the color you want to a YOLO dealer, and they will match it.

      When we designed the YOLO Colorhouse palette, we designed it to make color choosing easier for people. We saw a lot of people overwhelmed with the thousands of color choices, so we did the homework for people and weeded out bad colors and kept ones that worked well in interiors. Of course there are some beautiful colors that don’t appear in our palette, and that’s why we offer color matching anywhere YOLO Colorhouse is sold.

      Thanks for inquiring, let me know if I can be of further help.
