Always come here when I am back in Petaluma, and always buy something special for my own Welsh garden and for my best American friend in PA. It's so comforting to see everything's the same when I visit. I truly hope this and all the places that make Petaluma my home from home never change. I wish I could live... More

Attend the talks - great info. Talk to Paul - he's a huge help and an awesome resource. Buy the seeds and grow your own food.

We stopped out of curiosity and spent about 30 minutes here. What a unique store! I've never seen so many seed packets...flowers, vegetables, herbs and knick-knacks. We bought a darling milk bottle. The inside is beautiful. Don't forget to visit downstairs as well!

This is truly a treasure for anyone that loves a fabulous variety and knowledgeable employees. I had given up years ago trying to find a particular flower seed and finally found it here. I have been here a couple of times now and love the current floor arrangement. They also have a nice selection of books and heirloom seedlings for... More

Stopped by for a photo-op and bought a few heirloom seed packets. Would be a frequent shopper if we were local.

A variety of unique heritage seeds for flowers, herbs, vegetables and some bare-root fruit trees, all presented in a classic 1925 commercial bank building. Live cello music on a Sunday afternoon. Helpful staff to give advice. Park a few blocks away near a downtown city park.

I was amused that the seed bank was in an old bank. The place was very charming with some interesting garden tools, books, and of course seeds. Viewing the different seeds was an adventure, oh my so many kinds. I liked the variety of heirloom seeds, the colors were delightful. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a four... More

Loved this place. The only place to get a large selection of heirloom seeds. Its an old bank building, how perfect. Still a bank, but of seeds and wonderful gardening tools, books, and some local organic products.

the Seed Bank is an amazing collection of hundreds (maybe thousands) of seed varieties for sale. The staff knows everything about gardening, and are very helpful. The building is an actual historic bank building, which makes for a clever play on words. Worth a visit.

The seeds offered are an incredible assortment of almost any seed you might want. I was particularly interested in the huge variety of tomato seeds. The building actually used to be a bank. It's a wonderful re-incarnation for this historical landmark.
