Tomatofest.com

Web-based opinion from what I saw was that they were "expensive", but I didn''t seee that they were any better/worse than anyone else.


Good selection, pictures/description of product, easy order entry & shopping cart, good variety, everything in stock, encrypted payment, shipped when promised, shipped USPS First Class, good packaging & even threw in a bonus pack of seeds.

I have no complaints so far.

I've used jJohnnySeeds since I started growing 2 years ago and am very happy with them.
Good quality seed and several varieties for the northern gardener.

Great Seed starting soil, too.

They sell the soil block makers so you don't have to start your small seedlings in pots. Excellent results with those as well, but I only have the 3/4" for starting seeds and 2" size for transplanting before I transplant larger plants into homemade 4"-6" air-pruning pots.
The large soil block maker is too darn expensive, over a hundred bucks.

I got healthy plants and quality seeds from TerritorialSeeds, as well.

No complaints about either company.

Re: List of Seed Companies

Post  happyfrog on 11/23/2010, 4:43 pm

today i received my first 2011 seed catalogs.

thought it would be fun to put the web links as i receive them so folks can order a catalog, too.

totally tomatoes call toll free 1-800-345-5977 totally tomatoes

vermont bean seed company
call toll free 1-800-349-7333
vermont bean seed company

perhaps others can follow suit with the current offerings as they arrive? i know i don't remember all the places i requested catalogs from this year so it will be fun to get new offerings as well as the current catalog of whatever company i already had in my file to drool and dream over when there's snow and ice everywhere.

Seed companies in Europe

Post  LaFee on 11/23/2010, 4:59 pm

www.thompson-morgan.com - Thompson & Morgan, UK-based, but ship seeds to Europe.

www.suttons.co.uk -- Sutton's Seeds, also UKbased, also ships to Europe

www.willemsefrance.fr - Willemse, which I *think* is based in the Netherlands, but has great prices on seedlings AND seeds

Has anybody posted John Scheepers, Kitchen Garden Seeds, yet?

http://www.kitchengardenseeds.com/

I like their selection and seeds, their packets are OK, not great.

Another one is Botanical Interests, lots of interesting selections, big variety.

http://www.botanicalinterests.com/store/index_index.php

I've tried Gourmet Seeds. They have a nice selection, good seed, but really lousy packets. I've had a few of their packets split open while outside planting. Lost, scattered seed all over. Evil or Very Mad Not a happy camper when that happens. Their packets have no pics, no description of the variety and only very general planting instructions for the veg.

Another brand I've found locally (haven't ordered on-line) is Seeds of Change. Have an excellent packet, nice photo of the specific variety, variety specific info on the pack including a description of that particular variety and RESEALABLE! By far my favorite packing for ease of use, info being handy, etc. The big drawback is price. They're more expensive than most.

Found it

http://www.seedsofchange.com/

They have 100% organic per their site and they have a big selection.
