Seed Sources

In general, we have found Johnny's to have the highest quality seeds 
available, especially if you are restricted to untreated seeds which can be 
hard to obtain from other companies marketing to professional growers.  I 
have often been able to look at a flat or row planted to Johnny's seeds and 
see a clear difference in germination and vigor between it and a similar 
variety planted nearby.

As I tell my customers at Farmers Market when they complain about my high 
prices, you get what you pay for.
