Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

Topic: Seed and Plant Sources
Title: Source of cotton seeds in Georgia
Answered by: Nan Hampton

QUESTION:

Where can I buy cotton seeds????

ANSWER:

Try Bluegrass Gardens in Bonnieville, Kentucky or Reimer Seeds in Mount Holly, North Carolina. In Georgia and some other states where cotton is grown as a cash crop, it is against the law to grow ornamental cotton because of the boll weevil threat. Whatever state you are intending to plant the seeds, you should check with its Department of Agriculture to determine if it is legal to plant in the state.
