I have purchased from Jung's for over 40 years. My catalog came this week. Wow there is far more than 8% inflation in garden seeds, plants and sets.!!

You can't go wrong with Jung's.
Lately I have been very pleased with Seeds and Such.
Founded by a guy who used to be with Totally Tomatoes.
Real good seeds, shipping and prices.
As Bryce said above, prices have really gone up.

I have not gardened in a long while but I ordered my seeds from a mail order burpee catalog. Bought tomato and chili plants at a local green house. Grocery store had seed potato's every spring.

Totally Tomatoes if you're into tomatoes and peppers.

I'm bad to plant a dozen or more different tomatoes and peppers.

Are they heirloom, so you can seed save every year?


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Most local feedstores in Ohio and probably elsewhere, have seeds in bulk that they sell by weight or measurement for a tiny fraction of seed catalog or box store prices. My local feed store sells a great variety of seeds, all from Rupp.

I like the selection Seeds and Such have but a good price?? $4 for a VERY small amount of most seeds is not at all what I would consider a good price. I ordered from them last year, was disappointed, forgot about being disappointed, ordered from them again and am even more disappointed. 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.

I've ordered from Jung's, Baker Creek, Seed Saver's Exchange, and R. H. Shumway. Quit Burpees a number of years ago. Their prices were outrageous for the time and they cut their selection by 3/4. Been buying seeds at the local farm store for the last few years. The past two I have had issues with the squash. Last spring I bought acorn squash and ended up with a nice crop of butternut.

I have had very good luck with Baker Creek for the past 10-15 years. They have a Very generous seed count on most of their tomato/pepper seeds. If it says 30/pack it is not unusual if there are 45-60 in there. All of the others that I have used...if it says 30..consider yourself lucky if there are 32. Yes, Seeds 'n' Such was started by the same gentleman that started Totally Tomato & several others. He sold out & retired for a couple of years before he got bored & started Seeds 'n' Such. I had very good service from them & the only hiccup along the way..he dealt with in a very timely manner. I never had an issue with Totally Tomato..other than the high shipping/handling. Tomato Growers Supply in Florida has good selection in certain heirlooms that I have grown...but excessive shipping on small quantity. Service from all of these companies was exceptional.

[quote=Catch22]Are they heirloom, so you can seed save every year?[/quote

Heirlooms are good for saving seeds. Just be aware they have low disease resistance and will take more fungicide spray to keep them healthy if you live in a humid environment.

Around here everybody wants a german johnson and in the same breath ask if you have used any pesticides or fungicides. I just laugh and tell them I am as organic as the bugs and fungus will allow.

I have learned buying a strain of seeds with multiple disease resistance sure does make things easier.

Everybody thinks they are created in some lab somewhere. Most are just selective breeding for the strongest plants.

Lately I have used Red snapper, lemon boy, purple boy and tachi. Found an improved lemon boy to use this year and gonna try shelby instead of tachi for my roma tomato.

You wanna get some sticker shock, go on pepper joe's and look at the prices of their super hots. Some are $1/seed!!!! Seed prices are nuts now!!
