Price friendly seeds

Post  Scorpio Rising on 1/3/2016, 8:29 pm

OK, know that I don't have much SF, so this site offered pretty decent prices compared to other seed companies:

http://www.superseeds.com/

Seed counts are low, but it is perfect for me who is experimenting with varieties. They were almost half what some other, more commercial seed producers are charging. They were out of the pepper I wanted. I will get the rest from Baker's.

It is an option!

I'll vouch for Pinetree Gardens seeds, for all the reasons you mentioned. Low prices, reasonable seed count, and overall good product.  This year I also bought some tomato seeds from mrtomatohead (you can google him). Low prices for heirloom tomato seeds. I haven't gotten them yet so I can't say anything about quality, but for a few dollars I'm willing to try.

Good! I just ordered a whole bunch of stuff I was going to get from Johnny's from Pinetree. Prices almost less than half! Some things were sold out or unavailable, so will probably get the rest locally and at Baker's. Glad to hear a testimonial, kamigh!

I do a lot of seed shopping at High Mowing Seeds.  The prices are about average, I think, and their hybrids can be pretty pricey.  However, their seeds are 100% organic, developed and tested for organic growers, and for growers in colder regions.  So the fact that you get all that for average prices is a worth it to me.  Plus, they have free shipping on all orders, even for garlic and potatoes, which is pretty cool.  It's the shipping with other companies that kills me.

I bought some seed packets from Walmart last year.  I can't remember what  brand they were, but they were organic seeds, mostly heirlooms.  They were only $1, and there were only a small number of seeds in the packet.  It was perfect for trying out some new varieties.  I tried cosmic purple carrots and chocolate cherry tomatoes, and loved them both.

Nice site, LS! Thanks for sharing! I love the committment to non-GMO, and their prices were very competitive if not dead-on with Pinetree.

Also, I think I am going to order my sunflower seeds from them. I could buy them here locally at Walmart, or my nursery, but I like to support the small businesses that are doing things the right way. And I want a BUNCH of sunflowers! lol!

I didn't get one last year, put 3 or 4 packets in the ground as seeds, and GONE! Birds, or squirrels, no matter. Am going to start seedlings indoors and plant out when they are bigger.... sunny

Thanks for the link LS - looks like a lot of unique and tasty varieties they have there!  I like the idea of buying smaller amounts, too.  I've got a whole box of seed packs with leftover seed from the last two years that will most likely age out before I can use them.  I can only start so many at a time, and I got a little carried away with buying seed last year.

I have that problem too, Kate.  I like to try new varieties, but I only plant a tiny amount of seeds each year!  I'm totally addicted. 

Also, Scorpio and Kate, you're welcome for the link Smile I like to support High Mowing whenever I can.

Yes, I too am in the carried away camp, so as an SFGer, appreciate smaller quantities.
