My problem is i cannot find a good place that sells seed packets and has all of my flowers i need, if someone could share a site that i can get everything i need that would be great.

the problem for me is using multiple sites it will get costly for shipping so if i can use the same site and get shipping free with a larger purchase that would be great.

I doubt you will find everything at one site, but you might try anniesannuals.com to start.

Hazzard's is a wholesale seed supplier but they sell to anyone and have thousands of seed types. You should be able to find the majority of the seed types listed above on their website. It lists seed types by botanical name so you'd need to Google a few that you have posted above by common name (i.e, fountain grass, straw flower, creeping jenny). Their shipping charges are reasonable (at least in my opinion), they sell in larger quantities than others & have a vastly wider selection. My garden objective is to sow it, plant it and enjoy it while providing nectar/pollen to the bees, butterflies & hummingbirds. If it comes back the following year, hurray. If it doesn't, I'll sow, grow & plant something else that does.

Good luck and happy gardening!!

That is quite a list to find at one place, or even two or three places so I fear you're going to be out of luck unless you reduce your list of wants. But I agree that Hazzard's will be your best bet for many of them.

Another consideration is that it is too late to be starting many of them from seed for this year. So ordering this late to be ordering you may find many places are sold out already.

Good luck.

thanks guys for the great replies!!!

I know the list is long and i plan on building a greenhouse this summer so anything i start from seed will be in containers and go inside for the winter. still a bit new at this but i will learn as i go. thanks for the great advice!!

I would suggest you take your list to a big box store - quite a few on your list can be purchased there. You don't tell us where you live, but if you live in the USA, Kmart sells Martha Stewart seeds, and she has a lot of the 'unusual' seeds for sale.

I live in Maine, theres a K mart not too far away so ill have to check them out.

I emailed Hazzard's with my list hopefully they can get a majority of them to me. what i cant find in seed i will but bulbs/flats Im sure my local greenhouse can dig something up if i give them a request.

I didn't see this mentioned by anyone else, but if you go over to the seed exchange forum, often times people will offer to send seeds if you send them a bubble envelope and postage. Also, if you check people's trade lists, often times they will have a disclaimer stating that they are willing to do trades for bubble envelopes and postage for things on their trade lists.

Good luck!

RE: Hosta & blanket flower seeds

Matt - From your list I've got both hosta and blanket flower seeds I harvested from my plants back in the fall. I've got buckets of both so you're welcome to some in exchange for postage. If interested, post here and we can work out the details.
