I am looking through all the catalog's, getting ready to order seeds for greenhouse starting. I especially like petunias. They did very well last year from seed. I am looking for suppliers that sell in bulk seed. Annuals especially,
Spring is coming, and I am EXCITED.

I had to really cut down from what I wanted from here. I thought the prices were pretty comparable and the information about each plant was very nice.Seed starting instructions with each one.

Marie,

"I am looking for suppliers that sell in bulk seed."

Sample Seed Shop is kind of the opposite of bulk. Their motto is, "Great Seeds in Inexpensive Sample Size Packets." I buy "bulk" quantities of seeds from Hazzard's. I recently purchased a lot of Giant Cactus White zinnia seeds from them. They have a better selection than most seed companies, and their prices are competitive.

I plan to send them another order next month. I just wanted to get those white zinnia seeds in hand as insurance against them running out of them. Most seed companies don't even have white cactus flowered zinnias. And I hope to have a big bed of white zinnias this Spring.
