"The Seed Lady" Anne Hudson at Hudsons Hardware in Garner.
Anna Hudson has been working at Hudson's Hardware store for over fifty years and let me tell you she knows her seeds.
Ms. Anna has an area in the store where she takes the seeds from local supplier Wyatt-Quarles and measures them out to 1/4pound, 1/2 pound whatever size you need. She has every type of seed grown locally you could imagine and not only that she knows how to grow them and is more than happy to offer advise on planting, soil fertilizer, quantity etc.
I have a tendency to kill any vegetables I grow and I learned more from Ms Hudson about growing veggies than any book I've read. She is a treasure trove of information and is not going to sell you something if the time is not right, today I was looking at yellow squash and she said "wait till the 15th!".
So I have my potatoes in, onions, sweet peas, lettuce, broccoli carrots....lets see with the expert helping me, if I can get something to eat this year.
