Seed and garden catalogs questions:

Did anyone receive yours in the mail yet? I have not received a one!

Also has anyone dealt with this site: www.myseeds.co ?

I am looking for native milkweed and they have good prices, but I'm not familiar with them.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

4. i have gotten several.

seed savers has red milkweed.

i have gotten seed savers and johnny's as well as seeds of italy, which is a wonderful one.
high mowing is an organic seed company w lots of heirlooms.

not what you asked, but one of my fave things i have grown is johnny's yard long red noodle bean. tasty, pretty, super productive, and so much easier to pick and prepare.

5. This is the one you want

BTW you can't always compare seed prices because sometimes you aren't
getting PLS .....pure live seed ...... and so what seems cheaper really isn't.

I would also suggest getting some plants too because they will bloom this
year and you can harvest the seed too.

If you have a damp or wet area* get some swamp red milkweed. I have never seen
a plant get more native pollinators and monarch catterpillars then that plant. I had one
get about 5 feet tall and 4 feet across and it bloomed from july to early october.

* and you live where it is native
