What the Expert Says:

Hi - I'm afraid you won't find irradiated seeds at your local garden centers. I don't know where you live but your best bet would be to locate (a google search) the closest NASA facility to you and to call someone who is a scientist there. NASA has done research on such seeds in the past and you may get a lead there. You also might contact someone at the Los Alamos National Lab where they do a lot of work with nuclear materials.

Sometimes science supply companies carry odd things. Google the names (Frey Scientific is one). They all have online ordering, so you could just hunt for them.

Hi there,

I would try calling local nurseries for the seeds. Also, maybe try online nurseries or garden supply stores and see if they have them.
