Hello, New to this forum, thought I would ask this here. Does anyone know where I can get gernaium seeds? Harris Seeds has them but I thought they were sort of pricey?

Thanks for any info you may be able to give.

Are you looking for seeds for hardy geraniums, or pelargoniums?

Hardy geraniums, also called cranesbill, can withstand lower temperatures and spread to form nice ground covers:

Pelargorniums are what most people think of when they think of a geranium in a clay pot on a back porch. In a lot of states they are treated as an annual unless they can be brought indoors or into a greenhouse to overwinter:

Thanks Katie, I guess I am looking for the pot kind. I started some from seed last year and they did great then I brought them into my greenhouse over the Winter and they have come back even better. So I had the idea to try and get more seeds to start and sell the plants at the farmers market. I found some on Ebay and got a great prices on gorgeous varieties.

Thanks for the help

Try Park's seed. They have about the best prices. Try the Orbit series. Luciee {;^)

http://ivygarth.com/images/A1.htm has seed, some are mixed colors. Not cheap. $11-18 per 100 seeds, plus shipping.

Look under Annuals, then go down to Geraniums.
