What sites do you use to buy your seeds from whether it's vegetable, fruit or regular flower seeds?

It depends on where you are gardening, and what you want to grow this year ! Have a look through the Green Pages here.

It's ok, and thanks again. I actually ended up using google and the green pages to find some of the things I wanted to plant, but wanted to see where other's got their seeds from.

There's a few things from other countries I'm having a hard time finding like the Japonica fatsia plant and other plants as well, but I couldn't find them anywhere on this site listed.

I tried stark bros and trade wind fruits. You actually found it ha. Thank you! I wanted to have a mixture of different flowers, vegetables and fruits from other places in my garden aside from what I already plan to grow in it.

I can't make my garden until we move from our current place later this year. There's a city garbage bin behind my house so we get occasional rodents that sneak in the yard or in our house and they destroy everything.

My dogs have killed a lot of them which is why the rodents haven't got to my onions growing in my kitchen. So right now I'm just collecting the seeds and looking to see what other's have in their garden. I'm definitely looking for more edible flowers as well for my garden aside from everything else. But, I will make a different post for that. Thank you again! :)

I buy from Plant World Seeds every year and have had pretty good luck with their seeds. You can find some unusual varieties you just can't find here. I also like Jonna's seeds, she is in Belgium, her site is: http://www.seedsite.eu/ Jonna is a gardener, and her seeds are always fresh and she also has some interesting plants we don't see here so much. I check these sites when I can't find what I want in the U.S., although I have to admit counting Jonna as an internet friend. I check her site for the fun of it and always find something to order.

I don't think anyone mentioned Harris Seeds. I like them.

The only seeds I've ordered this year are tomato seeds from tomatogrowers.com. I always buy my tomato seeds there.

Wouldn't it be better to wait until after you have moved and can start preparing the garden area before you purchase seeds and/or plants?

As far as what others have in their gardens, it's a personal preference. Plant what you like to grow, like to look at and like to eat.
