i bought my "unique" seeds from territorial seed company. the rest of my seeds i just bought in town at a store called bi-mart. they were just the regular garden seeds you can buy at wal-mart, home depot, etc. they all grew great and had an abundant harvest. : )
I have no clue on gardening but I really would like to learn how. I bought my seeds at Home Depot this past spring they were organic seeds. I only got that far never was able to plant. I can't garden where I live. I been searching the web to see if I could use large plant pots instead and place outside on my porch. Not sure how that will work lol! : )
I'm looking for a source of sunflower seeds.
i just buy most of my seeds from gurneys or johnny's select or burpees ... many times, they are getting their seeds from the same source so all that really matters is the price ...

i've also bought some on ebay

and i've gotten some from seeds of change as well

basically, i've found that if i follow the directions on the packet or in the catalog, they grow ... and i mean follow ALL the directions (which is something i can have a bit of trouble with lol) ... a seed planted at the right time of year, in the right soil and given the right conditions will usually germinate and grow pretty much just the way it says it will on the packet
First-time gardener this year! Woot! I purchased my seeds from Seeds of Change. There's some good how-to info and resources on their site, but I was actually able to purchase their seeds directly from a local merchant who stocks them.

Chard
Kale (2 diff varieties)
Collards
Mesclun Mix
Radicchio
Spinach
Lettuce (2 diff varieties)
Beets
Cabbage
Cucumber
Sweet Pepper
Snap Peas
Tomatoes
Zucchini
Basil
Fennel
Mint
Parsley
Awesome seeds from EarthFare: "SowTrue" non-GMO, Organic! Awaiting germination in the solarium at present!!!
Susan, I'm no master gardener, but am (at least) a 3rd generation gardener and have been playing the garden game for probably 8 years now. The thing i love is that i'm sure to learn some new things each year!!

This is the first year i've ordered from Fedco (on a friend's reference) but i am VERY impressed with them. They will be my primary supplier from now on. The prices are great, and the germination rates are sky high for everything i've started so far!

Last year i ordered from baker creek (rareseeds.com) and was very disappointed with the germination of their seeds. They have lots of fabulous heirloom varieties, which perhaps are more geared to the highly experienced gardener who's got the time & inclination to baby everything? And maybe a greenhouse. I'm just not there yet! LOL
Hi, just wondering, are Fedco's seeds organic? I'm very concerned about GMO seeds, and won't buy them if they are not organic. Thanks for any info!

I get most of my seeds from our local feed store; or co-op. And I will buy them off Ebay too. Mostly try to get organic and heirloom seeds.
My Mom gardens in containers. There are several books on container gardening. Go to Amazon and search "container gardening" and a bunch will pop up. Usually after I check Amazon I check my local library's website to see if they have any of the titles. Container gardening rocks. It's very pretty! Good luck with it!

I have a question about seeds.. Should seeds be saved in the fridge or freezer? I don't plant every seed and want to save what's left in the packet for later - what is the best way? Thanks!
