This time I’m talking veggie/flower seeds (true for fruit trees too!)
You know, sometimes, I just need two or three packets of a seed that I can’t find locally, or can’t find it at the time of year I really need it.
There are certain seed companies I love, like Johnny’s and Territorial, who have great quality products, and a great selection, but if I only need a couple things, I end up paying more for shipping than the cost of the damn seeds!
Now, I understand it costs a little money to package things together, but for an order that small it could be put in a regular padded postal envelope, I still don’t know why I have to pay eight bucks for that.
It also seems like these two companies in particular never hold “free shipping promos”.
As far as buying local, certain things, onions in particular, as well as some brassicas, the local stores never seem to even start stocking seed until about a month after I should have already started them indoors.
