buying seeds on web

tdetrazFebruary 25, 2011

I am fairly new to growing cut flowers to sell and have been pricing sunflowers. They can be quite pricey. I was wondering if there are any good places on the web to purchase good quality, inexpensive seeds.

GeoSeeds has great prices and selection but they don't have a fancy catalog; you have to know what you want. Johnny's Select Seeds is good too but more expensive than GeoSeeds.

Yep, sunflowers are expensive when you have to buy thousands of them, but, as Steve said, GeoSeed has the best prices. Johnny's seems to have the best growing information, and I do buy stuff from them, too, but not sunflowers.

I would also check out Eden Brothers web site. They sell quite a few flower seeds for cut flower use. They have a few different sunflower varieties like Lemon Queen, Tall Teddy Bear, and Velvet Queen that are under $25.00 for one pound of seed. They also have Cosmos, Larkspur, Queen Ann's Lace, and Zinnias. Their prices are good and they offer free shipping on orders over $50.00. I have bought seed from them before and have been very pleased.

Use the same seeds that you would buy for the bird feeders. There are a wide variety of sizes and colors mixed in there and it is relatively cheep (pun intended) I started this after lamenting - well, maybe I was fussing/cussing - the low number of seeds in the pkgs and the price. Then I noticed that the squirrels had planted little gobs of sunflowers all over the garden. AND THEY WERE PRETTY.
