If you're looking to start your first garden or just expand what you currently grow trying the less expensive brands of seeds is a good way to start. One vegetable or flower seed pack is enough for gardeners with small spaces who just want to experiment. Yesterday I stopped by Walgreens and spotted the American Seed packs selling 3 for $1.00. Last year Dollar Tree had the American Seed packs at 10 for $1.00 and Big Lots usually has a good deal on seeds too. The seeds available at Walgreens were; beans, tomatoes, pumpkin, dill, beets, lettuce, carrots, basil and radishes. If you don't want to grow some food try the flowers like; cosmos Shasta Daisy, Zinnias and sunflowers. Many of them are on the list of the Top 10 easiest plants to grow from seed and can be started indoors under lights. For fancier vegetables and flower varieties check out the seeds being sold at garden centers in Chicago.
Update: The garden blogger at Jenn's Gardening Spot informed me via Facebook that Walmart has their American Seed display up and seeds are 20 cents a packet.
