  1. My favorite garden store is Mother Earth Gardens at 38th St and 42nd Avenue S., in Longfellow. They have just about everything you'd need. The co-ops also sell seeds. You might look out for the Seedsavers brand, they're connected to the seedbank in Decorah, IA and have some interesting varieties.

      Seedsavers brand of seeds is available at the Linden Hills Co-op. they have a great selection of hard to find seeds.

        I just came back from Linden Hills Coop and noticed they had very little to choose from; I usually go to Southside Farm Store on 38th St, or Bachman's.

    2. I get all of my garden herbs (and other garden things) at the Friends School Plant Sale every Mother's Day weekend. This year it's May 6-8 at the State Fairgrounds.

      They have a great selection of herbs and, because I have a brown thumb, I find my plants go better when others have started the seeds.

      More info at friendsschoolplantsale.com.

      As a matter of full disclosure, I have a relative who goes to Friends School and I volunteer for the school.

      1. thanks for all the tips

          Maybe shady acres herb farm? It's in Chaska.

        2. Sorry, this is not for seeds. With our short growing season I like to buy plants. My favorite is Dehn's at the Minneapois Farmer's Market. Bonnie Dehn knows everything and anything about herbs. She's amazing.

            Along those same lines, you can get some very unusual little herb plants at the Hmong market.


          2. I used to have good luck with Seeds of Change. http://www.seedsofchange.com/
