How Fun!

You will be in awe upon entering this place! Beautiful selection of gardening items, seeds galore. Just don't ask for help unless you brought along your big girl panties. When I asked a few seemingly fair questions, the man made me feel like a fool. "I don't know why you'd buy those now since it's not the season," Sarcastic, cutting... More

This is an old bank building...worth going in just to see it. There are so many packets of seeds, it would take you a half a day to see them all! Friendly staff. Other novel items for sale. It took my girlfriend in for her birthday...she loved it.

this is an old bank building full of rows and rows of seeds. The workers were extremely helpful in finding what I wanted - swiss chard seeds - I had at least 7 to chose from. There were 3 rows of watermelon seeds. I wish I had more time to explore the entire store - It would have drained my... More

This story is very different from any other store that I have been to. There are so many different seeds to look at and consider. In addition downstairs there are some great gardening tools. They also have some ready to eat foods and they sell some specialty beans which I really enjoy. The old bank that houses the store is... More

If you have any interest in gardening, particularly edibles, this is well worth a visit. The variety of seeds spans everything you're familiar with as well as varieties you've never heard of. The challenge for me is to not buy more seeds than I can possibly use (I never succeed). Even the most extensive catalog or on-line sites can't compare... More

This is a great place for seeds and gardening tools. They have seeds for everything and the people are very friendly. Love the name since it is located in an old bank.

This Seed Bank I'd the matter gardeners definitive store for rare heirloom seeds and "Air Plants". There are books for everything that grows, and a very knowledgeable and helpful staff. The building is actually an old Bank (classic architecture) and has a downstairs fulfill of treasures.

This is where anyone who is remotely interested in gardening should visit. There are seeds for more varieties of herbs, flowers and vegetables than I ever imagined existed. This is a resource for heirloom varieties, sustainable agriculture, and homesteading. The information about the seeds is carefully detailed in their gorgeous full color catalog. In addition to the seeds, there are... More

Lots of seeds and things to go with growing said seeds. Very interesting. You can find almost any seed your looking for here it seems. They also have ladybug houses which I'd never seen before.

The building itself is beautiful and cool to look around in, but the seeds are the best part. Rare varieties and heirlooms galore. I can't wait to put them in the ground. They also have a wealth of resources on urban gardening, organic methods, and any niche agricultural idea you might be contemplating. If you love your garden like I... More
