Where do I get them from so I can show my grandkids about cotton.. I can't find any cotton seeds for sale on the internet.. they all show how to grow it.. I want to buy some seeds to plant and grow.. it. Could you give me some places where I can get some ???
Try Ebay and Etsy, they are often sources for hard to find seeds.
I bought cotton plant seeds and was wondering if they will come back next year?

cotton is a sap feeder and so sacs of fluid come out of the plant leaving the plant turgid.
