Where to buy seeds in the San Francisco area?

I only have a couple of days left here and it just occurred to me that I should try to find some seeds that are not so available in my area (castor beans, four o'clocks, etc). Any recommendations on where to go? Thanks a lot

Berkeley Horticultural Nursery carries an extensive variety of seed.

Well, if you don't mind tootling up to Petaluma, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds has a store there (called The Seed Bank) on the corner of N. Petaluma Blvd. and Washington. They have the two varieties you mentioned and are reasonably priced. I love that place.

Edited to add: I think I should warn you they're closed on Saturday.

Here is a link that might be useful: Petaluma Seed Bank

Lelia: Thanks so much for the tip. You are right, I saw they were closed today :( but I put them on my list of places to visit on the next trip. Thanks so much
