Prices are for comparison only and although they are updated fairly regularly, you should always visit the vendor's site directly to confirm accuracy and availability. In addition, packet sizes vary from vendor to vendor as well as quality and germination rates, so price is not always an accurate determination of value. All of these vendors deserve your support, so please spread the love around when you are ordering seeds and don't be afraid to experiment with at least some varieties and vendors each year.
