Seed and plant resources

Post  lisaphoto on 2/1/2012, 10:46 am

I've found some good websites lately, and wanted to pass them along. You all may already know about them. For the purists, I'm not sure how organic they are, so be warned.

Dirtcheapseeds.com
sampleseeds.com Some veggies but mostly heirloom tomatoes
Selectedplants.com Heirloom tomato plants (this website has tons of links to other seed and plant sources)

Please feel free to add to the list (sorry if there is already a list somewhere, I didn't look)

Thank you so much for this post of almost a year ago, lol! I was looking for orange bell peppers and found them on Dirtcheapseeds with free shipping!

Mother Earth News is a magazine I always look at when at my local library. So I just bought their 43 years of magazines collection on a searchable DVD for $40 +$5 shipping. It has articles that listed their 15 top sustainable seed companies at http://www.motherearthnews.com/organic-gardening/best-vegetable-seed-companies-zm0z11zsto.aspx and also a seed locator using 500 different seed sources at http://www.motherearthnews.com/find-seeds-plants.aspx . Unfortunately this DVD has also created a new reading addiction. Here is a UK seed source for about anything you could desire especially herbs and rarities http://www.nickys-nursery.co.uk .

The www.wintersown.org is a good site but the free heirloom page can't be found nor does their site search work for me.

I just spent the morning reading the really unusualy offerings at this seed site. Many plants I never heard of.

I just checked out the Trade Winds Fruit website and they have two types of cantaloupe that I found interesting. One is called Charentais Melon, which bears 3 to 4 inch fruit and the other is called Minnesota Midget Melon with fruit about the same size. These would be great, I think for a single person household.

They also had a great variety of both hot and sweet peppers. Thanks walshevak for pointing me in their direction!

Here is the list of seed companies that the OP was not able to find. It is a sticky in the seed and plant forum.
