Well I completely forgot to start my seeds and figure I might as well just buy starter plants this year. Anyone know of a nursery in the Triangle with a good selection of heirloom vegetables? Mostly looking for tomatoes and peppers right now. I tried Garden Supply in Cary but they only had three varieties of tomatoes and not any I was interested in.

Check with Homewood Nursery - I believe they carry heirlooms.

Try Logan's. They have such a huge selection, they may have what you are looking for.

Oh I'm not too picky. I like to grow weird looking tomatoes you can't find in the supermarket lol. One year I grew a fabulous tomato that had the color and fuzz of peaches. Wish I could remember where I bought those seeds from.

I'll have to check out Logan's this week. For some reason I always forget they sell vegetable plants there.

I love heirloom produce. I find most of it tastes better than traditional stuff.

This is the best place I've found with such a wide variety with surprisingly good prices. The prices were actually cheaper than Wal-mart for a much better plant.

another vote for logan's. & i believe last year &/or the year before my husband bought some heirloom tomato plants from someone at the raleigh farmer's market. but we also have a friend who does tons of seedlings & she gave us some heirloom plants so i am somewhat foggy on what came from the farmer's market & what came from our friend. still, worth a short to check both logan's & the farmer's market.
