Hybridized seeds are rampant in the South.. People haven't figured out that most seed sold at Home Depot, Lowe's etc is hybrid or gmo seed sold by a seed supplier under Monsanto, the largest agrichemical company in the world. For that reason I buy from Northern California, supporting the small guys/ventures. I highly suggest these guys! Such awesome varieties. www.sustainableseedco.com They have a winter sale on now too. Get on it. Peace -
The main reason is that it is not my garden bed, and that it very likely will not be looked after.
I like to mix edibles and ornamentals, so may throw some autumn veggies in there anyway, but this bed needs more perennial flowers than anything.
Where did you go for all your seeds? I would like to find a seed supplier in the southeast.

I am new to this forum - live in South Georgia- but hoping one day to move to North Georgia or North Carolina mountains. Even though new to the forum-not new to these kinds of ideas. Have always been a permaculture person- just didn't know what it was called. I would love to connect to someone in this area that would enjoy a gardening project. I would like to put some of this information into actual practice. I have the garden space and will share!
Ya it's hot as fire in Valdosta...Okra has done well for me this year in the extreme heat. Check it out... http://livingwind.tumblr.com/post/9893664150/okra-really-loves-the-heat-sunset-south
I live in Valdosta which is about 10 or 15 minutes from the Florida line. It has been extremely hot and dry here this summer. I had a summer garden and my favorite was the okra. I planted an heirloom called Star of Israel. It really loves this South Georgia heat and humidity. If anyone knows of a small piece of property with a water source and dwelling in North Georgia either to rent or purchase- please let me know?
I am working on an Aquaponics system to see if I can grow under my house this winter...
Glad to find you all! Anyone else taking the PDC course in Decatur at the end of the month??
