Blue Strawberries and Rainbow-Colored Roses: Buyer Beware

Tue, 01/19/2016 - 3:00pm -- WCVE

Collecting those seeds often means going online multiple times each week to hunt for interesting seed varieties to try out - especially tomatoes. Last winter for example, I purchased 4 varieties of tomato seeds--Moscow VR, Russian Black Krim, Medovyi Spas, and Manitoba--and was very pleased with the resulting harvest.
