Hi! Do any Houstonians know where I can buy some flowers seeds in bulk? We have an event happening on Saturday and I ordered a bunch of seeds to divide into little packets for "party favors" - but they aren't going to get here in time. Rats!!
The bulk seeds at Lowes and Home Depot are 85% walnut hulls, so that won't work...
I tried Covington's (which is nearby.) They suggested Wabash, who seemed insulted that I would even suggest such a thing. (rolling eyes...) Any other ideas??
Sorry for the non-reply, but I'm clueless. No wisecracks now. Hope to see you and other DG'ers from the Houston area sometime. I am just east of you in Baytown. I've been reading about a Roundup that happens each Spring, so maybe there will be one around here.
That would be great. I would love to meet everyone and be able to associate a face with a name. I just saw a quote on here that fits me to a tee. It said, "I'm and old man, but a young gardener". I am retired now, but busier than when I was working, but I am determined to get a garden in the ground this Spring. I have a fish pond and plan to water with the pond water. I'm told the nutrients in that water are great for plants.
I ordered the seeds from another place (I'll keep Wild Seed Farms in mind for the next time - thanks, Lisa!), but they didn't get here in time, so I was hoping for a local alternative where I could get some quickly. Oh, well... The event went just fine, and we'll use the seeds at the next one. :-)
Native American Seeds is a good source for native wildflowerseeds. http://www.seedsource.com/
Fast shipping and excellent customer service. I e-mailed questions a couple of times and had a response within minutes.
