New to ordering seeds online....company suggestions?
I am a fairly knowledgeable hobby gardener but I just learned something new after reading through some posts in this forum....you can purchase named hybrid tomato F1 seeds. I just always assumed the F1 seeds could not be ordered by the general public and only by growers licensed to grow varieties like that. I wanted to give greenhouse tomato growing a try and assumed I'd have to go with heirloom varieties, (which I may also try) but I'd kinda' like to start with something I'm more familiar with like Better Boys now that I know that's an option.
My question is: Are all F1 seeds from these companies the same or is there anything I need to know or look for when ordering from them besides who has the cheapest price?? Are there any kinds of treatments or coatings on seeds from some places but not others or is that even a factor? In other words regardless of source, are all Better Boy F1 seeds created equal?
Thank you for any advice.
