RE: Best Sources for tomato plants (Follow-Up #2)

Two suggestions for plants.

Below I've linked to Darrel Jones excellent site where you'll find many many common AND hard to find varieties. Darrel posts here as Fusion.

His plants are of good quality, packed well, and reasonably priced compared to several other sites.

The other good source is SSE itself who ship plants in the Spring as well..

Click on SHOP at the above page to find plants. Plant varieties may differ each Spring, so take a look.

Hope that helps,

Carolyn

Best way to get "unusual" varieties is to start from seed. Lots of seed companies out there, I like Fedco, but Johnny's, High Mowing, and Totally Tomatoes are highly recommended. New England Seed ships next day but they're more geared toward commercial growers. I looked and they did have 9 pages of tomato seeds though.

If you don't mind driving to the Berkshires for plants, I usually sell my extras each May ;-)

MoralEagle:

Check out if your city gives away free compost.. They usually pick up leaves from the curb and compost it and provide it to the residents.. I wouldn't get rope into paying your wallet for some soil.. Everything around here is around $40 bucks a yard! I probably got around 10 trick bed full of compost free from the city, you have to dig it yourself.. I would be paying hundreds for the same thing at nurseries,etc.. The best thing for your garden is the compost you make yourself.. Don't get fooled into paying big bucks...
