Default Stokes catalog came

* * I got my Stokes seed catalog in the mail yesterday. *Before I even consider ordering can I get some opinions of their seeds and services? * Have you ordered from them before and if so were you happy with what you got? * I don't know if I should get my seeds from someone like them or just buy either at Wal-Mart or the small nursery that's a couple of blocks up the street. *Any opinions appreciated. Thanks.
Oh yes, I'm mainly interested in things that will do well in containers, lettuce, scallions, baby carrots, spinach, cherry tomatoes, and the like.
I just open my mouth to switch feet. It's what my mother called "foot in mouth disease" and I have it perfected.

Stokes does have some of the old varieties, so I would say go with the Open Pollinated seeds, and save seeds from what you grow.
Kale is good in containers if you have a couple big ones. You can "cut-and-come-again" with it, and it gives you something fresh and green most of the winter here in zone 6.

Is the small nursery privately owned or part of a big chain? I always support locally owned businesses before I buy from big box stores or corporations. The thing I like about the small nursery near me is that the woman that owns it will grow something specific if I request it.

However when I do have to buy seeds I buy them from the Jung Seed Company, have always had great results!

I like to look throught the catalog,but have never ordered from them.The prices always seem a little high to me.

I liked what I ordered from Baker Creek last year,and will most likely order from them again.
