I would think different time for different prime. We all have slightly different spring schedules.

I would recommend ordering over the internet for better choices and earlier delivery.

Internet is great

But unless you can send me a link to a place where I can get a seed pack for under $2 with free shipping I'm all in!

georgiavines.com has some cool flowers and edibles for under $2 and free shipping. No minimum. I've ordered from them for 2 years.

Wal Marts usually come in first I would guess 3 more weeks! Livingston seeds are in some gardencenters now because I bought some today at one of the garden centers. They put the seeds in the racks today!. Nice selection!

When do Walmarrt, Home Depot

Hello RuHappy69. Ken here in the Chicago area. The Home Depots
in your area should be getting Spring seeds in sometime in January.
To be sure, go on in and ask either the department head, an assistant
store manager, or the store manager. They would know exactly when the
seeds are arriving. Good luck and make it a great garden in 2012.

I tried to find clearance or discounted items like a month ago bu at lowes and one home depot the guy acted like I was crazy for asking. Like they were acting like they don;t clearance or discount gardening stuff. I guess I will try again. I'd love to score discounted potting soil.

I don't know what it is about the purchasing personnel @ the big box stores in San Diego, but they are idiots. They do not know how to restock items when the shelves are empty. Obviously they sell, but instead they discontinue the selling items.
Although they have seasonal items, they do not have a clue about the local season where the store is located. :roll:
Winter in San Diego is prime time for so many veggies its laughable what these stores do for inventory. Do they throw out last year seeds?

rant off !
:D

I wonder why our garden centers sell herb and tomato plants in December but no seeds.

As of Thursday Walmart has all of their seeds in :) well, maybe not all, but a lot of veggie seeds. They switched brands though. None of the $1 packs of Ferry Morse seeds, they're all Ferry Morse, but new packaging and ranging from $1.19~$1.89. :?

Tonio, Home Depot, and Walmart and Sprouts all have tomato and other vegetable plants in fall and winter until the Christmas trees come in.

LOL Deborah, I forgot about this thread he he he.

Isn't it crazy these stores having plants you can't do anything with? I thought you meant actual nurseries stocking out of season seedlings. If that were the case, I would have to talk to the mgr. to see where their head is at:wink:

I did see Wallyworld starting to stock up on Burpee veggies last weekend. They actually had some organic seeds too! Funny, some stockperson was assembling the set up, and mid-way they got out of alphabetical order and stopped . LOL

Corn Seeds

Anyone know if Walmart, Lowes, or Home Depot typically have organic or heirloom corn seeds? Just wondering if that's something I'll likely need to order online before I make the 30 minute trip to a store.

I would compare postage to gasoline. If you have to make the trip anyway, no comparison.

Don't be the one that burns $5.00 in gas to save .50 on the price of milk. :wink:
