I'm Lively

Hi there!

Hello and welcome, if you’re reaching my new blog through my recent Instagram Reel!

I thought it would be a great resource to share all the seeds I’m buying, and where I’m getting them, but what I didn’t know was that creating this list would make me go through all the seeds I had, clean them all up (from ones I no longer wish to grow, to old seeds that needed to go) and that now I actually have a list of all the things I’m planting and buying and from where!

I will be the first to admit, I’m not a very organized person by nature. I often fly by the seat of my pants and only track what I need to, but this really helped ME, as much as I meant to create it to help YOU!

This list does not contain all the seeds I save myself and plant year to year (like cosmos, hollyhocks, sweet peas, peas, beans, thousands of zinnias seeds, lotsa pumpkins, bachelors button and many more). Maybe that’s a list for another day!

In the meantime, here are way over 100 of the seed types I have purchased, many of which I simply prefer to buy to save myself time and effort while knowing I’ll get great results.

If you choose to buy from West Coast Seeds I would love if you used my affiliate link, where I receive a small commission at no cost to you!
