Heirloom Seed Source

anniesgranny(6b)February 22, 2009

I just had the nicest correspondence with the owner of a new heirloom seed company. I don't think I am supposed to advertise it here, so run don't walk and check out my newest blog if you want heirloom seeds for a great price and $1.99 shipping/handling!

Baker Creek is another Heirloom site, along with Freedomseeds and Tomatofest. Fedco Seeds has some but not all heirlooms.

Again, I always suggest folks to order from companies that are either located in a similar climate (not just zone) or have test farms in your climate.

Baker Creek isn't terribly expensive on their shipping and handling (my big gripe with most of them). I would shop there. In fact, I'll be sure to order their catalog next year.

I don't know how many times I've searched for Freedom Seeds...all I get are dead links, blogs or stories of the family, but no seed list or catalog.

Tomatofest is too pricey for me. $3.95 for 30 seeds and another $3.95 to mail them? Nuh-uh.

Granny,

According to their website, you can request a 2009 seed list from Freedom Seeds by emailing them at dervaes@pathtofreedom.com. The Freedom Seeds website is not ready yet. Hope that helps.

Thanks, Kym. I thought I was going senile when I Googled page after page for that seed list and came up empty handed!
