I live in Greater Phoenix. Looking for advice on heat tolerant seed sources.

What do you recommend?

From Walmart?
From HomeDepot?

OR other sources?

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

I get seeds from a lot of different sources.

Here are a few of them...


Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds



Sand Hill Preservation Center



There are some eBay sellers who sell bulk seeds at great prices too which is where I get things like beat and carrot seeds.

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

I have ordered from several places but one that I really like is Pinetree Seeds

They have seeds of plants that are grown all over the world like the Middle East and Latin America.

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

Native Seed Search is an Az seed source which sells varieties well adapted to our climate. I also buy from Baker Creek, Seed Savers Exchange, Victory and Landreth Seeds.

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

Fun posts! I buy plenty of common stuff from local nurseries and big box stores, and I do a lot of seed/plant swapping too. For catalog/online places I like Burpee, Park Seed, Select Seeds, Baker Creek (fantastic beautiful catalog), Thompson and Morgan, and JL Hudson.

I buy most plants locally but also do a lot of plant trades, plus purchases from High Country Gardens, Select Seeds (they do plants too), Annie's Annuals, and my favorite Plant Delights. Oh, and too for plants and seeds.

Happy sowing and growing everyone,

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

I got the last batch - some summer squash, onions, carrots, and chile negro, from Summerwinds nursery.

I still have a lot of seeds from Baker Creek - leafy greens, chard, oriental greens, and some tomatoes.

Okra - I saved some seeds.

Seed Savers Exchange
Seeds of Change
Native Seeds/SEARCH

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

I like this place because the shipping is free. Delivery is fast as well.

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

Mostly Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tucson. I've planted watermelon, 3 kinds of tomatoes, 2 kinds of chiles, garbanzos, and peas and have had 100% germination so far. Plus, I like that the varieties are relatively native and adapted to our climate.

RE: Where do you get your seeds from?

I found Artistic Gardens.They have sample seed packets for 35 cents each. It's a great way to try things you might or might not like without investing a lot of money. They also have larger packets for about $1.
