Heirloom Tomatoes Sellers

Hi All,

I have heirlooms on my mind and I didn't get a chance to start any seeds. Does anyone know of any sellers in the Birmingham area? I know about Tasteful Gardens in Heflin but if I could stay closer, that would be great.

Also, do you think it is too late to start tomato seeds? I need some opinions because I don't use seeds for most veggies.

A lot of heirlooms are also popular tomato varieties you'll find on almost any seed rack, like Brandywine and Cherokee Purple.

It is late to start tomato seeds if you want to transplant as soon as it's warm, but the season is plenty long enough for lots and lots of homegrown maters before frost.

For what it is worth, at the Etowah County Master Gardeners sale on April 12 and 13, we will have transplants of a number of tomato heirlooms for sale for $2 each. I cannot remember the entire list, but you can e-mail me at and ask if we have a specific one. I know we will have Cherokee Purple, Black Krim, and Brandywine. Isn't Homestead also an heirloom?

Definitely not too late to start seeds. Plus, a number of mail order places offer express processing for additional charge.

A couple of places to check out online:

Darrel Jones/Alabama

Abundant Acres Heirloom plants

Both very reputable sites.
