Where to buy seeeds

Hi All,
I just got my computer prompt to buy seeds
to plant in late may.
Problem: Burpee is out of stock on virtually everything.
I presume it is because of the RED Chinese virus of
death and hoarding.
What is a good alternate source of seeds that
actually germinate and are in stock?
Many thanks,
-T

there is a good chance that many of these might be closed to the public, but eventually they should be open again.
i don't think you like anything i grow.

Wally World is open. I will look at their rack. I think I may have some ron-d-nice leftover from last year somewhere.
It is the diabetes thing.

This is the busy season for the seed companies; everyone who gardens is get ting ready to plant. And I would guess that a lot of seed companies are sho rt on help as a lot of their people might be out due to virus fears.
My wife does her seed shopping in January and starts most of them in flats in the greenhouse, so she beats the springtime rush. She wanted to buy some thing additional last week and ran into the same problem you're having, the seeds won't be available for a month or two.
I think Songbird has the best solution; check your local garden and feed st ores to see what they have.

Hi Paul,
Thank you!
I also changed my computer reminder prompt to March 2 to February 2. And I will definitely check Wally World next trip to find no toilet paper.

Will do if I can't find what I want. I do have a packet of unopened ron-d-nice from last year, so I think I will get by.
Thank you!

Although physical infirmity has kept me from the garden for a couple of years, the "season" starts in September with a second planting of veggies requiring more temperate conditions starting in mid-February and continuing into April or May for a few truly "warm weather" items such as okra or so-called "southern peas". For both of the reasons cited by you, my #1 go-to's are Sustainable Seeds or Victory Heirloom Seeds . Both are good sources for organic, untreated and OP. For larger quantities and for "safe" treated seeds, it"s Reimer and for seeds somewhat "tuned" to my climate, I buy from Southern Expusure Seed Exchange . Because I buy in the fall for an entire year, I have no idea whether or how any of these folks might be coping with present conditions, Hope this helps a bit.
