Garden and Flower Seed – Sources

Q: I am looking for a reputable seed company to order seeds from for my home garden. I reside in zone 7 of Georgia. Can you email me a list of a few companies that you know of or have experience with working with?

A: Arty Schronce at the Georgia Department of Agriculture suggests:

“Look in the ads of the Farmers and Consumers Market Bulletin. There are a lot of good (and very reasonably priced) seeds there, including old-fashioned varieties. Also, if there is a particular seed you are looking for, you can place a free ad in the Market Bulletin describing it. Subscriptions for Georgia residents are $10 per year. To start a subscription, send a check or money order payable to Market Bulletin to 19 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Room 226, Atlanta, GA 30334. If you cannot find the seeds you are looking for in the Market Bulletin or your local garden center, here are several seed catalogs to consider:
