It’s time to purchase your unusual seeds for your spring flower and vegetable gardens. Since if April showers bring May flowers — what has to occur before that? Seeds from the email! Organic, non-GMO, heritage, specialty — all sorts of seeds. But particularly the seeds for your flower and vegetable gardens. You can have the incredible yard or patio with a little help from flowers and vegetables. For city dwellers, a backyard of odd plants or flowers on the terrace would be the talking point at any party.
And sure, if you are into growing vegetables, then you always need the old stand-by greats, like beefsteak tomatoes. But the fun part is that the weird stuff. There are all kinds of exotic vegetables, as well as organic and heirloom. And some of the flowers are magnificent. And a lot of flowers do come out of bulbs. But this really is the wrong season for this talk — we’re talking seeds now (or bedding plants). There are so many simple to grow, strange seeds readily available now. Many do not even require starting inside. The backyard is your canvas, and the seeds are your brush.
Renee’s Garden Seeds has some unusual varieties available by email (and retail but email is easier).
We have linked to some of the best places to purchase your seeds and if you are within the United States, in many cases they can ship bedding plants (if you want).

Is there?
