A good source of seed for small home gardens

Pinetree has traditionally specialized in packaging smaller amounts of seeds per packet and charging less per packet. The price differential has grown smaller over the years and the selection variety does not seem to be as good as other seed companies. But I still find it to be a good reliable seed source for my small urban garden

Hi all, my overall shopping experience with Pine Tree Garden Seeds is awesome! I have not grown a lot of the seeds I purchased over the years, but I have had success with the ones I grew. Pine Tree Garden Seeds customer service is great! I highly recommend them to anyone. Richard.

Thyme Hedge

I had no trouble starting seed indoors in peat pots. The small starts I planted in my perennial garden became a lovely low, fragrant hedge, that I especially enjoyed each time I brushed against it while gardening. I'm hoping it will survive the winter in central Ohio and that clipping it in the spring will give me a fresh and shapely hedge again next year.
