We do not usually recommend places to purchase seed. I would recommend going to local nurseries, and checking online for seed. This will be your best option.

Q. Will Cotton plants come back next year in Michigan?

I bought cotton plant seeds and was wondering if they will come back next year?

No, it will not return in your climate. Cotton is a tropical perennial and will not survive temperatures below 60 degrees F.
