Free? I think I can afford that.

Free? I think I can afford that.

Are you wanting to garden this year, but the prohibitive cost of seeds is keeping you from your dreams? Look here, my friends!

That's right, free seeds. Send your self addressed stamped envelopes to these wonderful people, and your seeds this year are at next to no cost. I mean, come on, three stamps? Pfft, potting soil costs more.

Alright, so it's not completely free and effortless, but you do have to admit that this is a pretty cool thing for somebody to do. The websites are also full of growing information that you'd have to look up otherwise.

An interesting side-note on the Biblical Gardening site, the Shasta Daisies being offered are good companion plants for roses, among others. They attract beneficial insects, such as ladybugs and praying mantises, which will consume any insect pest problem your plants come across. Also, since they are a member of the Chrysanthemum family, they could possibly be ground into a natural pesticide! And all that for free! Well, sort of free.

So grab your expensive gardening equipment, your special growing mediums and fertilizers, etc... 'Cause you're not gonna have to pay for your seeds!
