Does any one know where I can get a good deal on some heirloom veggie seeds?
I just ordered some cheap heirloom and Open pollinated seeds. The name of the co. where I ordered them is heirloomveggieseeds.com I got 100 vegetables seed packets for $49 but if you are looking for pretty packaging this would not be the place to get them because their packaging is plain but for the price you can't beat it. They also don't let you pick which vegetables go into the mix but I was pleasantly surprised that it contained almost every vegetable seed you could think of. Before I found this place I used to order my seed from seedsofchange.com but their seed is not cheap. I have also gotten some decent deals on ebay.com Goodluck!
Thanks chrisperry. I just ordered the 100 pk. online. Thanks for the tip.
That's a great place! Wish they mailed to Canada. :-(
I would use ebay! I even sell some seeds on ebay to help afford other gardening things I want.
The below link has pretty good prices and megacheap shipping.

I know this is a bit old, but I'll put my tip here regardless. Last fall, our community had an heirloom tomato festival. It cost $10 to get in, but there were free tastings of the most amazing tomatoes. Also, vendors sold varieties I had never seen before, usually offering a sample first. My wife and I tasted, then bought several tomatoes that we loved. I did seed saving on them, and my entire crop of 100 vines this year will be from that festival. I even have plenty of seeds left over if I want to use them next year.
Fedco Seeds! www.fedcoseeds.com
Fedco sells only non-GM seeds, and has loads of heirloom and open-pollinated varieties, and as they are a co-op and not a for-profit business, the prices are low. They also sell seeds you may have a hard time finding elsewhere, as endangered varieties.
I'm lucky to live in Maine where Fedco is located, but they will ship anywhere, and you can browse the catalog online as well as do interactive searches online, and you can order online. Johnny's is good too, but Fedco is my first choice for non-GM, open-pollinated, heirloom, seed-saving seed, and for the promotion of the "self-sufficiency" and "local, not Biotech-giant" based lifestyle. Fedco does not do business with any biotech conglomerates, even when it means it cannot offer a popular variety.
I get mine here:
good customer service, lots of quality seeds, low shipping

Great sites. I get my Heirloom seeds from Backyard Heirloom Seeds & Herbs.
They sell in sets also and sell Culinary and Medicinal seed sets.
They also include unusual/ rare heirloom varieties in their veggie sets like Romanesco Broccoli-it's really fun. Hope this helps.
