My boyfriend has turned me on to direct from China websites (where he orders his flashlight batteries). I was browsing through one, just to see what weird items I'd run across today, and found seeds. Lots and lots and lots of seeds, for pretty dern cheap. Right now I'm looking at apple tree seeds. http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/30-SEEDS-RED-APPLE-TREE-VERY-FRAGRANT-SWEET-CRISP-GARDENING-SEEDS-PLUS-MYSTERIOUS-GIFT/406915_749824436.html I've seen these patio apple trees before (I think it was Miller Nurseries used to sell "Single Study Stem" trees), but don't like the price tag. It just seems odd to buy seeds from China - could the seeds harbor some kind of bacteria that isn't native here?
