Sources of Heirloom Seeds

Now that the holidays are over, I'm in full-blown rainy day gardening mode. My yard is a swamp, so I'm doing lots of armchair gardening. This year I'm going to try growing heirloom winter squash, so I've been looking for sources of heirloom seed online. Here are some of the best sites I found:

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, http://www.rareseeds.com
Veggies, herbs, and flowers

Heirloom Seeds, http://www.heirloomseeds.com
Veggies, herb, and flower seeds

Rich Farm Garden Supply, http://www.richfarmgarden.com
Veggies, herbs, flowers, fruits; seeds and plants

Sand Hill Preservation, http://www.sandhillpreservation.com
Heirloom seeds and plants, as well as poultry

Seed Savers Exchange, http://www.seedsavers.org
Veggies, herbs, flowers, potatoes, garlic

Seeds Trust, http://www.seedstrust.com
Heirloom seeds, booklets on seed saving

Victory Seed Company, http://www.victoryseeds.com
Veggies, herbs, and flowers

If none of these meet your needs, check http://www.greenpeople.org/seeds.htm, a directory of organic and/or heirloom seed suppliers. Most of the suppliers listed are in the US and Canada, but a few overseas sources are included as well.

be extremely careful with rich farm garden supplies. I advise you to do a google search for richfarmgardens.com reviews...it makes very interesting reading.btw I ordered seeds and am still waiting 2 months later...they don't respond to emails

I can recommend a couple of these companies whole heartedly. Baker Creek and Rich Farm Garden are both very good companies to deal with - never had any problems with either of them.

Wow! you've got the best picture there! I'm sure you're getting better working with heirloom seeds. They are totally amazing seeds. I like "my weeds are very sorry, they promised not to do it again". A nice compliments for them! Try some of the heirlooms offered in the internet! It will add to your collections!

Wow! That's cool information. Thanks for the heads up! I would love to collect heirloom seeds because It's really fun to have it in the garden. I started planting heirloom seeds because of my father.
