Buy Live Plants Online at Saratoga Seed

Saratoga Seed was started in 2009 when we sold only one plant.  It was pink lily of the valley, Convallaria majalis, var. rosea, descendants of the original East Tennessee stock that my Mom, Alice, had planted in our Saratoga, NY garden.  Those plants grew so well in the sandy soil of this area of Upstate NY, that our gardens soon became full of them.  Like all of you, I couldn’t just throw out plants that made the mistake of being overly enthusiastic, so I started giving them away, selling them at our garage sales, and bringing them to plant swaps.

I soon learned how excited gardeners would become about sharing these “pass-along” plants, those plants that are handed down in a family, or friends, neighborhoods or garden clubs.  So with the idea of “gardening for gardeners”, we built more plant beds and made arrangements for even more.  We took our online plant idea to eBay and then Etsy, then finally finding a home at Amazon. We started adding more plants to our gardens that would meet just a few criteria:

  • they need to be rare or unusual
  • they need to be able to be grown over most of the U.S. 
  • they need make an avid gardener’s heart sing!

Our plants are grown in our garden beds within the confines of the fashionable city of Saratoga Springs, New York.  We also propagate and root cuttings in our greenhouse space in Winter Park, Florida.  We sell our plants on Amazon during the growing season and on this website year-round.  You’ll find the best prices, as well as any Specials, on our website.  Our plants are guaranteed and we use flat-rate shipping on most items.  Buy live plants online at Saratoga Seed- We look forward to doing business with you!
