    Default Where to buy seed.

    This will be my first year buying seed for plots. We just closed on our land yesterday and, from asking before and previous posts, fall planting time is fast approaching. I've still got to mow and spray my plot areas, but where do I buy the seeds? I'm in Stokes County.

    I buy mine from Hancock's when I can't get it close to me or it's to expensive to by local. Most of their seeds have free shipping under 25# and will be at your door in about 4 days.

    If you have a Southern States close most of them have bags open already for less than full bag purchases, or our local one does.

    LTD in King should have what you need, or they will get it.

    Not knocking it, but you can usually get larger quantities of seed that do the same for the same price or cheaper from a local farm supply/seed store.

    OP, see if there's a CPS (Crop Production Services) in your area. They usually have all the typical foodplot seeds, or can get them within a few days.

    Get that 2 ton/acre of lime out now, take soil sample for your planting, this will save you time/money instead of guess work. Definately spray wait 10 days then disc well, you should have your lime down before discing. Put out Oats, turnip, radish, in @ Sep.2-18 this will get you this year. These grow with lower PH, fertilize once you seed with AG recommendation. Do clover next year once your PH gets up from liming fall is best. Next spring, soybeans for sure. Good luck, happy/safe hunting this year.

    Thanks yal. Everything is happening fast on this end. A good fast. Children, trying to lock down a house plan(which we've switched several times over, but for good reason,) partial construction lender, start the farm up, work, school, perc, well, power, everything else, oh and deer. Can't forget the deer. Lol.

    See what I'm talking about... Lol. The place we get scratch from, the place I know deals in seed, I haven't thought of. Thanks Smith.
