With spring it is normal that you feel like planting flower seeds. It is the opportunity to see them grow, but, above all, to brighten your eyes with the beautiful colors that the flowers have.
The problem is that, many times, we buy flower seeds without realizing if it is the best time, if they are suitable for the climate, or if we are really going to like them. So, how about we give you a hand with this and help you choose some that you really like?
What should you look for when buying flower seeds?
When buying flower seeds there are several factors to consider to ensure you get the best flowers, as well as seeds that will actually germinate. Some of the things to keep in mind are:
You should choose seeds that are suitable for the climate of your area. If you live in a hot, dry climate, for example, you may need flower seeds that are drought-resistant.
You can search the Internet for some examples of flowers that adapt well to your climate and with which you will have no problem seeing them grow and flourish.
The flowers have different blooming times. Therefore, you should buy flower seeds that have a planting season according to the season you are in.
Now, you could also get the seeds before that season.
In this case, in many envelopes you have the best time to plant them and when they should flower, so that can serve as a guide.
Consider the space you have available to plant your flowers. If you only have a small garden or pot, you may want to look for more compact flowering varieties or ones that don’t develop as many roots.
If you are going to plant them in the ground, the type of soil you have will greatly influence the germination and good development of the plants. For example, if you choose flower seeds that need a very nutritious soil and yours is rather dry, no matter how much you want they will not succeed (and if they do they will run out very soon).
Some seeds are easier to grow than others. If you are new to gardening, we recommend choosing the easiest to grow. You will have time to move forward and try your luck with other more complicated ones.
It is better to go step by step because keep in mind that what you will have in your hands will be a living being.
It is important that the seeds are of high quality from a reliable supplier. And, above all, that they are not expired.
Seeds may have different expiration dates. Some may only last one year, but others can be used even four years later.
There is no doubt that one of the keys to take into account when buying flower seeds is that you like them.
It is true that some flowers you may not know, and be pleasantly surprised. But if you have little space, it is better to play it safe than not to risk it and later not like it (for example, because it attracts insects).
On most flower seed products there is a label with the usual instructions. If you want to be lucky and get all of them you have to follow what is written.
Finally we have the price. In this case, you should be guided not only by your budget, but more with the space you have available because the seeds are quite cheap in the case of basic or common flower seeds. Those that are more special may have higher prices, but require more knowledge and be more aware of them.

Where to buy
All that remains is to take the plunge and buy flower seeds. And this is quite easy since it is a product that you find in many places. But, of all of them, the ones that we recommend the most are:
Amazon for buying seeds is amazing. You have practically all types and many come from other countries. Of course, germination is more complicated because from the comments we have read, sometimes they do not succeed.
As for prices, there is something for everyone, from the cheapest to some that are too expensive (especially compared to other stores outside of Amazon).
Online gardening stores
The next store where you can buy are garden stores, plants, flowers… In addition to having plants, many also have flower seeds and they usually have quite cheap prices.
Another option is through second-hand stores, or second-hand platforms. They are usually cheap and, above all, the plants from which the seeds come from are usually adapted to the climate. If you get them from the same city you can have a better chance of them germinating and flourishing healthily.
