I was wondering if any one down south would have about a dozen good cotton seeds you could send me. I will pay you for your trouble. I want to plant some in my garden then cut a couple of plants to take to our local tractor show. Many people up here in Illinois have never seen a real cotton plant. If you have some you would send me please email me and I will email you back with my mailing address. Thank you!

John B.: Are there any dairy farms around you??? Many of them use cotton seed for a feed ingredient. Many diaries buy them by the semi load. They are just the seeds that are removed at the cotton gins. They are unprocessed. They will grow. I have grow a few hand fulls several times over the years.

Just start a few in dish and see if they germinate. If they do them just take some of the others and plant them just about like corn in depth. You would plant them thicker.

As for any bowl weevil danger. I was told that the bowl weevil will not survive where the ground freezes.

I really do not know how the cold effects the weevil. With Northern states not having a commercial crop because the summers are to short to grow it they most likely do not have restrictions. I just mentioned it because I know the crop is regulated so it might be worth checking.
I know in Louisiana you can not grow cotton unless you receive prior permission from the Dept of Agriculture. They want to know where every cotton plant is in the state. Our state is now weevil free but if you get permission to grow cotton the state will place a weevil trap in your area to make sure we preserve our boll weevil free status.

You can buy small home use packs of cotton seed online for less than $10.

Be forwarned. Cotton is a VERY highly regulated crop and seeds can not be shipped to some states. Even growing it as a non-commercial or ornamental crop in some southern states that grow cotton can be against the law. This is to prevent the spread of the boll veevil.

Thank you John,

I will take a look online.

I appreciate the headsup on the weevil.
