Was in Home Depot yesterday. The seeds are out already. Is it my imagination, or does this happen earlier and earlier each year? I haven't even started on my containers yet!

I just got three packets today from Wal-Mart. I got Oriental Poppies Mix, Lupine Russell Hybrids Mix, and Columbine Harlequin Mix. I was surprised to see them there today, but I was happy! lol

My grocery store had them yesterday. And I too have yet to start.

In my opinion, January is the time for dreaming and planning, not for buying seeds. I usually start buying seeds around the end of march. My best friend's birthday is March 31 so that's a benchmark for me.

I try to buy my seeds in January. I did have my wintersowing done but then I had to order more seeds which should be here in the two weeks. I start my indoor seeds in February so my thinking is it can't hurt to look.

I walked into Dollar Tree last week, and there they were-right in front of the door! It's entrapment, I tell you! Four for a dollar-how can you stand it!?!

Love it-love it-love it!

Wow!! That's a bargain - 4 for 1.00. Think I will check our Dollar tree. I have done my winter sowing and they are sprouting.
I saw some seeds at Walmart - plan to buy a few if I can't get them thru swaps or trades.

Happy Gardening!

Oh great - I have absolutely no need for more seeds - just finished inventory of over 400 varieties - yet my heart just skipped a beat when I saw this thread!

Seeds are here at Walmart and HD. I was looking for a new flower, I found a zinnia called 'Old Mexico'. It looks like the whirlygig series.

Found them in Lowes today. Seed racks are a cheerful sight!
