I don't have good luck with seeds either. I buy my plants in a variety of places in my small town; Meijer, Walmart, Menard's, Lowes, and the farmer's market.

Well, surprisingly, we've had more success with starter plants bought at Walmart than at a local florist!

In general I do not purchase seeds because our growing season is just too short. However, I have found that most seeds for herbs sprout quickly. Those I buy at the local garden center. Just make sure that they are for the current growing season and are not left over from last year. For plants, I get these at the local farmers market. I have found that plants started in the local soil grow best in my yard. This includes vegetables and flowers.

Hi! I plan to start a garden this year, at least a small starter garden as I work towards learning how to handle one, and I wondered what people's preferences were on where they buy their seeds and/or plants from.

Thank you,
Alicia
