I just had to dig up the Burpee catalog to see, and then remembered their prices are double.
I would really like to try their Sweet Treat Carrots, Big Mama Roma toms, Sunny Boy toms, Sweet Tangerine toms, and Golden Egg Summer Squash and even with free shipping I can't make myself pay the catalog prices.
Checked out Gurney's but all I'm getting is the regular $25 off they always seem to advertise. I'll tell you what though, Jung Seeds have always grown well for me, and I can't wait until it is time to replenish my seed stocks, and then Johnney's Select Seeds.....here I come! I love that place!!
I usually hit the Lowe's and Home Depot stores early spring to find most of what I need and when I find something unusual I snap up extras. This way I only order every three or so years the stuff I can't find locally, like my purple cauliflower or Romano beans which far out perform the traditional green beans and taste better too, I think. I'll dig through my seeds and see what other different stuff I have.
Considering I just now (last week) picked the last of the Cauliflower, Chard, and Bok Choi, then planted garlic and put the garden to bed.... I'm taking a little break for a while and not thinking anything plant, beyond watering the herbs in the window.
For those who are going to order, if it helps to know, most seeds last quite a few years so you can take advantage of sales and stock up.
I have an awesome book called "The Vegetable Gardener's Bible" by Edward C. Smith and it is my top gardening book.
Here is a list of seed longevity:
