Heirloom Tomato Seeds

Posted by kimspangrude Utah (My Page) on

Hello, I am new to the forum and old to Utah gardening. I have a fairly large garden space in my back yard, and my husband is currently covering it with a really spiffy quanset hut type greenhouse that will really be quite large. I want to start seeds right now, but am trying to figure out where to buy heirloom tomato seeds in Utah. I live up around 2700 East and 3300 South. Any ideas or suggestions? Also, when can you plant pole beans in a greenhouse - anytime as long as the soil is warm enough?
Thanks and happy gardening!

it is a little late to be starting tomatoes. however, traces, 1432 S 1100 E
Salt Lake City, UT
will have a good supply of different tomatoes that could benefit from being located under some kind of cover. and an interesting place to poke around in.

RE: Heirloom Tomato Seeds

I usually order my seeds on line.Sorry don't have any extras left to share.
Jimh,please don't tell me it's too late to start tomatoes, Just started mine yesterday. can't plant them out until middle of May anyhow(Sevier County). We'll see how they'll do.

RE: Heirloom Tomato Seeds

I have extra seeds that I would be willing to share. I saved a bunch of seed from my garden a couple of years ago, and I have a lot of seeds I have gotten through trades on a tomato forum I belong to. It is a little late if you wanted to plant out early, but you would be ok starting some seed now if you are planting out in mid-may. When I am late I just sprout my seeds in a warm place and then transplant them into larger containers and they seem to get bigger faster. I live in Springville, but my husband works in downtown SLC everyday. Also, I'll probably have some extra plants if you haven't planted any yet.
