50 Seed Packets for Under $1.00!

Pin It

Welcome one and welcome all! Today we are diving deep into the amazingness that is independent seed sellers for some great deals on seeds for next spring! These make fabulous stocking stuffers (for a gardener like me!) and at this price*, you can swoop up a few yourself for the growing season!

* A note on eBay pricing -- prices are starting bids and can of course reach higher if several customers are buying.  Shipping is also a consideration.   However, I tend to bid once and then quit on seed auctions so that I get the seeds for a low price.  Seed sellers tend to have multiple packs of each kind of seed and will immediately relist the item after the initial auction closes.  Also, most eBay seed sellers offer bulk shipping, so if you find a seller you like - stick with them!  Average shipping is around $2.00 with additional seed packets being 10 cents each for shipping/handling.

Now is a great time to buy because seeds are fresh from fall harvests and the selection hasn't been depleted yet, meaning YOU get a huge selection starting with one of my all time favorites at #1!

1.  Italian Sunflowers – The whiter, lighter yellow version of this classic favorite.  I grow them every year!  My favorite eBay seller flowerangel has packet of 50 seeds for .99 cents.  Unbeatable, I tell you!  Of course, you’ll have to beat ME on the bidding for this one!  GOOD LUCK!

EDIBLES! 

For those looking for pretty plants with a purpose!

 

Capture6. My favorite seed edible has to be the lovely blue Jarrahdale pumpkin.  These seeds sell at 99 cents for a pack of 5 seeds.  They germinate fairly easily, so I would say at most you will only lose 1.  Each vine produces 1-2 of these blue beauties and if you grow only this kind of pumpkin, you can save the seed for the following year.  I purchased this seed once and now save tons of them after we eat the pumpkins (yes we eat them!).

I wouldn't trust the sellers of the rainbow rose, as far as I know rainbow roses are created by injecting dye into the plant as the flower grows. I'm suspicious of the green rose too.

The rest of the list is pretty awesome though! I have never thought to look for seeds on ebay. (I don't know whether it's just me but I can't see the photos or links from between the weird section and the 'in your cart' section. I also can't see the Amazon photos or links)

hmmm...good point on the roses :)

What browser are you using? I'm seeing it on firefox and ie on pc, ipad and phone -- I'd love to fix the problem on all browsers!

Sherri Saturday, November 17, 2012  

I'm on firefox 16.0.2. I asked my fiance to check on his computer and he's not seeing them all either, also on firefox.
