Review of Petaluma Seed Bank

Petaluma Seed Bank
Ranked #1 of 8 Shopping in Petaluma
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Petaluma Seed Bank is one of two splendidly repurposed old bank buildings (the other is antique emporium) in the historic district downtown. The place is a mecca for gardeners with over a thousand varieties of seeds, many of them rare and hard-to-find. They also offer gardening tools, books and all sorts of gifts, most of them hand-made locally. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and all of their seeds are natural and non-GMO. These folks are working hard to bring back the days of healthy, unprocessed, chemical-free foods.

Great place to find rare seeds, gardening tools and books. Friendly helpful staff. They have a nice selection of air plants and unusual garden tools. I bought a cobra and it is my go to tool for any garden work.

We visited the seed bank to purchase some heirloom seeds for a friend who is an avid gardener and home chef. Since we visited in Sept., selection was limited - understandable because they are in between seasons ( people don't generally start their gardens in fall and we were looking for summer vegetables). The staff were super friendly and knowledgable and helped us with our selections. We'll be back. Very cool place to visit!

There are some veggie varietals that are difficult to find, like Kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) and Futsu (Japanese black squash) and they carry them. They also have a great selection of other items for the garden of for gift giving.
