Wal-Mart seeds are not actually inexpensive
I already posted this message in the Growing from Seed forum, but I thought I should post it here as well.
I was just at Wal-Mart yesterday looking at their seeds and they had some great prices, they even carry Burpee seeds. However, when I picked up the packet it felt very light. Then I looked on the front of the packet only to see it was a 20mg packet of tomato seeds and it had maybe 5 or 6 seeds in it. It was only $1.07 but for $1.99 at any other store that carries Burpee seeds you could get 100mg packet of the same seed.
It was the same for all of Wal-Mart's seeds they were cheaper than their competitors but the packets contained far fewer seeds. So in reality they were much more expensive than their competitors by weight.
If you only want a few seeds, then I guess it is a good deal and you can pay for the convenience. I just want people to be aware that while the prices appear cheaper, you would actually pay more if you want to get the same amount of seed that you would get from another store.
