Can anyone on here tell me where the best place to buy vegie seeds. I just
got books from Harris seeds and Seymore seeds and Burgess and I ordered a
book from Yung seed co. So can anyone tell me where they have the best luck
with. By the way i'm in wisconsin. And I like to try starting my vegies in
the basement this year
Harris is a quality operation, but not one I've ordered from in recent years.
My favorite is Pinetree, but I also rank Johnny's and Stokes very highly, and
I like Territorial, too.
Pinetree and Johnny's are in Maine, Stokes is based in Canada
and Territorial in Oregon. Pinetree is oriented toward home gardeners,
with smaller packets of seeds at very reasonable prices. Johnny's has
developed and introduced new varieties and is oriented toward northern
growers. Stokes is super for hybrid sweet corn (many exclusive to them).
They also sell a number of flowers in single color packets that other suppliers
only provide in color mixes.

Use Google groups to search here and in rec.gardens.edible for
suggestions/opinions. There is no "best" source. Pinetree and Johnny's
are reputable and have many cold-climate varieties. Best to ask rather
which are the *worst* experiences people have had. There are a few of
Hi there - saw your post after I posted my rave about Johnny's.
They're great. I had a great experience ordering from them. They have
a great variety of veggie seeds. Check out their site if you want!
Hope this help you.
I also use Johnny's with great success (looks like I'm not alone!).
I also like Fedco- great for cold climates and lots of organic seed. Their
catalogue is super, too.
Garden Watchdog is a great web site that rates virtually all mail order seed
suppliers. You can find out who's hot - and more importantly - who's not. I
rely on this heavily in my business. Happy Hunting!
