Great Selection of Seeds, Books and other Gardening Tools

What a great place! We spent a good two hours browsing seeds and books. Left with a new crock to make sauerkraut and a bag full of books and seeds.

This is on the Historical list or it should be a walk around town of the old downtown section. This bank is a good Bank and is very helpful to anyone of old Petaluma or new. I would suggest walking from the Bank down the street and also seeing the old and new Theaters. Also do not miss the Old... More

Take the traditional marble and granite of a traditional town bank and repurpose it to stock seeds of thousands of varieties of plants. That's the Seed Bank and well worth a visit for anyone who likes gardening.

Well, if you know what you want and know what you need, it is the place to go. If you have any questions specific to a variety they can NOT help. They knew superficial information about 'veggies' or 'flowers' but certainly weren't able to 'talk plant'.

Very interesting place to visit. They have a huge selection of seeds here. I go to buy pepper seeds here. They can also order you something if they do not have it in stock.

Visited here on my recent vacation to Northern California. This magnificent building is located on the main drag. Enjoyed browsing through the seed store. Bought several packs of seeds to take back home. They had so many selections of tomatoes that I have never heard of. Can't wait till spring to start my planting. Place is very clean and staff...

The seed bank has heirloom and non-Gmo seeds that you will not find anywhere else. Their catalogue is a thing of beauty worthy of a coffee table! Stop in and visit this gem if your heart lies in digging dirt!

Indeed it is a Gardeners Haven! The seeds selection is just remarkable. There are alot of stuff you can see and buy for your garden and home. We do not mind driving for hours to go to this place. It is really worth the drive!
