Seed and Gardening Catalogs and where to find them


Every year I look forward to my mailbox filling up with the various seed catalogs I enjoy and spending an afternoon or two skimming through them during the chilly winter. I thought you might like to do the same so I put together this helpful list of Seed and Gardening Catalogs and where you can request them from.

The list includes companies that provide everything a gardener could possibly want. From unique perennials and rare annuals to non-GMO seeds and heirloom plants and seeds.

I also included several suppliers of tools and other hard items that will find their way into your tool shed.

  1. Douglas, thanks for such a detailed list! You have the oldies-but-goodies and some of the later seed companies. I use Fedco and Seeds of Change. I’m also partial to Baker Creek Seeds for the best in non-GMO and heirloom seeds. A really fun place to visit too, if you are ever in Missouri!

  2. W. T. Smith says:

    Thanks for this thorough list. I was about to search for seed catalogs individually until your page came up in my search results! These selections should keep us busy for awhile.

  3. Gurney’s also sends a free seed catalog. They are my personal preference.
