Today I am going to talk about where to order seeds online. It seems I have become a seed hoarder and a collector of seeds. When I go to a local store, I find seeds, or purchasing seeds online, I buy more seeds. You can purchase just about any seeds imaginable. You can buy organic seeds online, heirloom garden seeds, vegetable garden seeds and just about any flower seed you can imagine.
I am going to review, where to order seeds online, for 3 difference online sources. This was a difficult piece to write because I kept getting distracted of all the different seeds I could purchase. I found more seeds I don’t have, imagine that. Let’s get started. I am going to review Botanical Interests, Burpee and Seeds Now.

My Final Thoughts
In my review I find any of these 3 places are all great to order garden seeds online. I have actually purchased seeds from all 3 places and never had any troubles.
I am actually looking at purchasing some live plants from Burpee, and of course I found some seeds to get to add to my cottage garden project this spring.
Purchasing at any of these places would be a personal preference. If you are looking for more then just seeds then I would recommend Burpee, they also have gardening supplies too.
Hope you found this post informative and helpful. Please leave a comment below.
