Are you pouring through your seed catalogs wondering what you would like to grow in your garden this year? Here are some of my favorite resources for seeds, and other gardening supplies:
Seeds of Change offers certified organic seeds, and some of the best heirloom varieties I have found. They also offer a 5% discount if you place your order online. I always go through and hi-light my favorites (half the catalog) then I go back and narrow it down to my absolute favorites, and a couple new choices.
I also love Gardens Alive for their all natural gardening products. If you start receiving their catalog they often have coupons, and discounts on the front cover. I love their products. They are environmentally friendly, but strong enough to help my garden thrive every summer. I take an inventory of the supplies I have on hand from last year ( if they are not past their expiration date), before I sit down to make my order.
Burpee is another favorite of mine. I can drool over their catalog for hours. I find it very helpful to create a rough outline of my upcoming garden before I dig too deep in the seed catalogs. The outline helps me stay on track, it also keeps me from getting to crazy with my ordering!
Some of the catalogs, and websites also have great outlines for specialty gardens. If you would like to grow a butterfly garden, a shade garden, or hummingbird garden, check out the seed catalogs for layouts, and suggested plants. These special gardens are also often bundled together with a discount.
Have fun checking out your favorite seed catalog or website.
