If I pay $4 for a pack of seeds I expect more than 10 pepper seeds.

Fedco is one of my favorites for price.

Baker Creek if I just need a pack or two (and they have it) since they always have free shipping (but their prices are also high at $4 or so a pack but at least it's a decent amount of seed).

Southern Exposure, Sow True Seed, and Sandhill Preservation are all pretty good.


As stated, prices have sure gone up. Seeds and Such give a price break of 50 cents a pack if you order 20 or more, which I do.
Amounts per pack very and new releases are expensive. They had an early bird offer over Christmas time of 25% off and $4.95 shipping.

I looked online yesterday. I only needed a couple small packs of seed. I checked around and was surprised that a lot of places wanted to charge as much for shipping as they wanted for the seeds.

I ordered from Baker creek and got free shipping. Got my 2 packs of seeds for less than $6.00.

I also like Jung. Has anyone mentioned Harris? And Park has been around for a long time. My daughters have me order their sweet corn seed from Rupp.

For many years, Gurney's Seed Company is where we always ordered from. We have had excellent results using their seeds. They have been around since 1866. I'm surprised they haven't been mentioned yet?

I always order from Jung- yesterday at Farm & Fleet they had a wide display and variety of Livingston Seeds, they also had a few specific seeds that Jung did not offer (mostly pumpkin varieties) - I'm not familiar with the brand, albeit it's been around since 1850.
Has anyone had successful germination and Livingston Seeds?

I have had great luck with Baker Creek, Gurneys, and True Leaf. Last fall, our local Home and Garden Stores were discounting left over seed packets. I picked up several hundred Burpee Organic Heirlooms for 10 cents each. Hard to beat that price locally, even if it's only 10 seeds in the pack, many have more though.
