Seedlings in Philadelphia area

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the site, so please forgive me if this has been covered a lot already. I am getting the gardening itch, as I'm sure you all are too, and even though it's a little early I wanted to plan things out :)

I'm looking for a place to buy seedlings that has a wide selection of heirloom tomatoes and other veggies. Organic would be preferable, but not necessary. I went to a place several years ago with a friend, of course I can't remember the name of it now, but it was really perfect. They had literally dozens of heirloom tomatoes and several varieties of peppers, eggplants, tomatillos, all kinds of unusual seedlings. I think it was in Downingtown. They had a few different buildings filled with seedlings, I spent at least 3 hours picking several dozen plants to take home. I was in heaven!

Now I wish I could remember what it was called. :( Do any of you have any places you recommend for seedlings? I wish I could start from seed myself but I just don't have the room or the time to invest!

Hi. Sorry I can't help you, but you might want to post on the Pennsylvania site. Someone there no doubt knows the answer.

Have you tried Triple Oaks Nursery in Franklinville, NJ? It's probably about a 45 minute drive south of the Ben Franklin or Walt Whitman Bridges. Lots of heirloom and native plants and the people who work there are very helpful.
