Ordering seeds?

I've been looking on line for some seeds. There are so many different companies!!

Are there any sources you find to be better than others?

Last year I stumbled onto this site. I was very happy with the seeds I received.
Especially like supporting small growers. Although their selections are not as large as the big growers.

Here is a link that might be useful: shop seeds

RE: Ordering seeds?

I ordered some seeds from Onalee after seeing the name in some photos posted here. I think it's especially good if you just want a few packs, as the shipping is included in the price of the seeds. There is a $6 minimum though; but when you buy three you get one free!

What really helped me though was that each packet has not only planting instructions but also a photo of the seedling, so I won't be weeding out what I just planted.

Take a look, Mel, and you might like it too.

I've ordered seeds from at least 9 or 10 different companies and I would order again from all of them.
Even the couple that took longer to ship.
Any problems I've had with any of them was taken care of.
I usually order from the company that has the most of the varieties I'm looking for.
I hate to pay postage on just a couple of packs.

RE: Ordering seeds?

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I've never ordered seeds on line before.

Let me know if I have anything your looking for and I'll check to see if I have it.
I haven't gone thru my seeds since spring planting, so my list isn't updated.

Native American Seed is good if you're into natives.
