Hello everyone

I have some friends living in the US (Vegas) who come regularly visiting over here.
I would want them to bring me some native/non-native US seeds when they come (i could order them onlyne but the customs would probably lynch me ).
I think bringing some seeds in your luggage would be incospicuous and pretty easy.
They are ok with this btw.

So now i need to find some places that sell seeds online.
If you know of any, preferably cheaper, please tell cos' i want to buy many (well, not at once).

Species are from small herbaceous to large trees.
I've got to get myself to make that list these days ...

For trees/shrubs these two sites are the best. The first has a huge selection. Their smallest sized packet is 1 ounce (28grams).
The 2nd has many hard to find plant seeds. He offers smaller sized packets.
Both offer very good pricing, and are great to deal with.

Burpee seeds (you can just type that online) has a pretty good selection at decent prices and they always seem to be having a sale.

I've ordered seeds from Ireland(sent to the US) and had no issues. It all depends on what you order. Some plants are outlawed for very good reasons.

Yeah, right, except if you manage to stumble upon the odd customs worker who doesn't trust the fitosanitary certificate (if it exists) and sends your precious seeds to the lab for testing.
You might have ethnobothanics and "stuff" in there ...
Needless to say, you won't get anything back ...
This has happened before so ...
 
You get good luck from rubbing the belly of a tiny ad:
