Default Dwarf seed in bulk....

Is there any place selling dwarf seeds in quantities in the 100 or more range? I didn't save any last year and need a lot. Thanks!

I wonder if Victory Seeds might work with you if you called them? Good luck in your search!

Heritage sells larger packets. Their 10 seed samplers are $1. Larger 35-50 seed packs are under $3. Buying two óf those is probably still a better deal than anyone else would give you. Ellie's easy to work with, if you're placing a large order I imagine you could work out a discount.

What I would do is Google particular varieties, particularly if earlier releases. Even Johnny's picked up Tasmanian Chocolate this year! Restoration, Fruition, aside from the initial companies involved (Sample Seed, Heritage, Victory and Tatiana) - one thing I've yet to do is to take each of the first two years of released dwarfs, one by one, and Google to see how widespread they are becoming in terms of offering companies.

But that was the plan - it is working as Patrina and I intended. Create them, find a company or four to do a release, see if word of mouth works, other companies become curious - it has been so fun to watch unfold!

Are you after a particular variety or just a bulk lot of one? I have a couple of fruit ripening on Tasmanian Chocolate that I could pull the seeds out of if you want. They are unbagged.

any particular varieties? 100 isn't so many when saving ones own seeds. most tomatoes make more than 100 seeds. I save seeds from several of the same variety when saving seeds.

+1. I'd trial a bunch of varieties this season and then you can easily save in bulk for expanding your planting in future years for the ones that do well for you. Win-win.

I list over 40 dwarf varieties. Not all from the Dwarf Project tho. I don't have bulk listed on the site any more but if I have a decent amount of seeds I do sell larger amounts.

As yes - Hi Carol! You've been listing more and more - it is heartening to see them spreading, and you've supported the project right from the start
