    Default Where To get fall goldenrod/aster seed?

    I am looking to seed a pasture in goldenrod or aster. I was wondering which plant is best for bees in the fall (goldenrod or aster)and specifically which cultivar if y'all know. I know New England Aster is very good, but I don't know if it will make as much honey as goldenrod. I need to get the seed in a bulk order so if possible 1-25 lb bags of the stuff. So if you know where I can get this much please let me know. Thanks.

    I have been looking at Seedland, but have not purchased yet. So I can not tell you if they are any good.

    I was thinking about their Honeybee mix:

    Here is a list of the individual flowers they have:

    The Goldenrod is very expensive:

    Neither are cheap... I try to spot the goldenrod beside the road and harvest it in the fall when it goes to seed...
