Does anyone know where to get seeds? Most blueberries aren't "available in California" for some reason in all of my catalogues. Also needs to survive in zone 9 for me.

You are in a tough area for blueberries. Check this link out it will tell you what you need to know for your unique climate.

You will definitely want to start with plants from the named varieties in the link. (not seeds)
