Where can I buy quality seeds, specially for herbs, in Chicago? I'm looking for sellers that are within city limits. Thanks!

For herbs...basil, dill, thyme, oregano, etc. I thought the question was clear enough!

I think he wondered if you were looking for marijuana seeds.

Meh, quality. Pretty much all commercially available seeds will do the trick.

Just check the date on the packet. Many retailers sell old stock. The packet should say "packed for the 2008 season" or similar. Any brand will still provide the same variety. The only thing that may vary is the number of seeds. I buy mine from the local hardware store - they sell gardening pots, compost, and also seeds.

Unless you're an experienced and organized gardener, seeds will make you less happy than a few 4-inch pots of the herbs of your choice. Especially this late in the season.
