Why Is Burpee Not Included In Seed Catalog List

Question From: C. Andrews - MICHIGAN
Q: Nancy, Thanks for the list of seed catalogs. Any reason you did not include Burbee?


I have a problem with the way Burpee does business Chuck. They stopped selling their 4th of July tomato ( my fave) seeds to growers when Ball seed began growing them under the Burpee name. Last year they did not ship the seed to their retail outlets, although it was on the order form. I used to buy the seed at Walmart. Now they only carry older varieties at very reduced prices. Their seed prices are much higher than other seed houses and the prices in garden centers are lower than the catalogs prices. Best Nancy
