Seeds are a ridiculous price and the number of seeds in a packet usually far exceed how many you need or want.There are some seed companies on line which offer less seeds at a more reasonable price.
I tend to buy most of my veg seeds..and flower seeds come free with magazines, that way you generally have a good read and get free seeds into the bargin.
Saving seeds from both flowers and veggies works out more economical too and the real seed company encourages you to save veg seeds.
I also find checking out whats in the childrens section of seeds on offer from different seed suppliers useful, seeds are usually cheaper and sometimes offer the variety you want, for instance I purchased some Gourds ' Russian Doll' at Kew for £1 59, the same seeds in the adult section were almost double.
