Small plot gardener, looking for small scale variety seed sources
I'm both relatively new to starting a garden by seed, and this forum (though I have been lurking for a while). As of recently I have decided that I would like to start a small scale heirloom tomato garden, though due to size constrains imposed by too small of a yard, I can't imagine being able to facilitate more than 15 or 20 tomato plants. My problem is I want to grow a variety of different types of heirloom tomatoes, to find ones I like the best, I assume two or three of each of selected varieties. The problem is ordering 10 packs of differing varieties of seed would not only be a bit pricey (new college grad with no job yet), but a good portion of the seeds in even a small pack would go to waste. In essence what I'm asking is...
Does any company / anyone sell heirloom tomatoes (and possibly other heirloom seeds) in a sample type package offering a variety of seeds, but with only a few seeds of each type per package?
