Favorite Seed Companies (other than Veggies)

13 years ago

Whenever I see one of these threads, I always find out about a seed company I haven't heard about, so thought I would start a thread for 2010.

For native forbs, shrubs, trees, and vines, I love Prairie Moon Nursery. They probably have the largest variety of native seeds you can find anywhere. In the midst of our "depression" they still remain at $2 a packet. I have found they package more seeds per packet for the price than anyone else and their seeds are viable to the nth.

I ordered from a new company, Everwilde Farms, because they had a few things that I did not find at Prairie Moon. Will let you know how that goes.

I have used a few Ebay sellers in the past, Onalee's is a good one. Please list if you know of any others.

Select Seeds, as Dawn has mentioned, is great for heirloom and not-so-heirloom ornamentals. Rank them right up there, too.

Am looking for Caesalpinia gillesii seeds if anyone knows where I can find them.

J. L. Hudson is another good one, as is Horizon Herbs which has an extensive selection of herbs, both culinary and medicinal.

Pinetree also sells roots and rhizomes, such as Hops (Humulus) that I ordered from them a couple of years ago, and they were fantastic! They are very reasonable, too.

Hopefully we will get a good list going here!
