Mail & Internet Ordering Resources
While this list includes a few of the generic sources for plants and seeds over the Internet, I have included several of the more hard to find sources for tropical plants:
- Annies' Annuals Excellent quality. My favorite.
- Brad's Buds & Blooms
- Burpee Seeds
- Fancy Hibiscus
- Going Bananas - The name is very apt. They are passionate about bananas and are more than happy to pass on their excitement to other gardeners. The site has a great selection of plants for sale and some excellent guides and resources on growing bananas.
- Jene's Tropicals
- Le Jardin Ombragé
- Park Seed Company
- Pase Seeds
- Stokes Tropicals
- The Southern Bulb Company - Excellent assortment of crinum
- Swallowtail Garden Seeds - I found about this supplier from the Gardening in Central Florida blog (an excellent and well written web site on gardening in Central Florida). If you go to the Burpee or Park sites you will find an overwhelming selection of plants and seeds to choose from. It's almost too much. Swallowtail Garden is a refreshing departure. Seeds are their specialty, they seem to have a better selection of what I really want, and it's a great deal easier finding and buying seeds on their site without all the clutter and distractions.
- Tomato Growers Supply Company
- Wayside Garden
- Whatcom Seed Company - Rare and unusual seeds
- Zone 9 Tropicals
