Hi! Does anyone out there know where I can buy vegetable and herb seeds and soil to start an indoor garden? Thanks!
B&Q at the XiDan Market in the West has an assortment of seeds and gardening supplies.
We get our soil, seeds and nutrients there.
But usually near any produce farmer's market there is a fresh flower shop and they usually have seeds and pots and soil for sale as well.
You could check the Flower market in Sanshenxiang
If you don't want to go that far there is a smaller flower and plant market near the South Train Station. When you go South on Renmin Nanlu and turn right into the Airport Expressway it's on the left-hand side.
For herbs you could buy fresh plants at Metro and try if they grow. And there is always taobao to order seeds online.
I have some basil seed I will try to seed these days, my mint does really well now.
