Does anyone know where I can purchase seed potatoes in bulk in the Downriver area, or even at the Eastern Market or Monroe? I know Lowe's and Home Depot have pre-packaged seed potatoes, but they only carry one or two varietes. I would prefer to have fewer starts and more varietes. I have been growing herbs, tomatoes, & peppers in containers for years and would like to try trash can potatoes this year. Would like several varietes to see what grows the most successfully. The store I knew as Hertzler Bros. (don't know if it has changed names) in Ann Arbor carries quite a few varieties, but I was hoping to find them closer to home. Thanks for your input.

Seed Potatoes? I'm lost here. We just cut them in half, cut side down in a mound and reek-sp- the harvest.

I don't know if they have them but did you try:

Blocks at the corner of Eureka and the Airport

Schwartz' on Sibley between Inkster and 275

This are both great greenhouses and they have all sorts of nifty stuff. Even if they don't have what you are looking for, I bet you'll find something else that you might like to have!
