Burpee Seeds began in Philadelphia in 1876 when 18 year old Washington Atlee Burpee borrowed $1000 from his mother to start his own seed company. Originally Burpee sold not only garden seeds, but also farm supplies, tools, and even livestock. By 1915 W. Atlee Burpee & Co was mailing a million catalogs a year.
David Burpee, the founder’s son, took over the Burpee Seed when his father died in 1915 and made flowers one of the company’s highest priorities and initiated several flower breeding programs. He sold the company to general foods in 1970. David Burpee remained as a consultant until his death in 1980.
