Garden Seed Catalogs

Garden seed catalogs are appearing in mailboxes, giving us inspiration for the year ahead. Most seed companies are happy to make you a beautiful printed catalog to browse. Here’s a list of seed companies with printed catalogs as well as seed companies with online catalogs. Have fun dreaming while you’re waiting for the growing season to begin.

During the dead of winter, it’s fun to thumb through the pages of gorgeous seed catalogs, discovering the wide variety of flowers, vegetables, and fruit that might fit your growing zone and growing space.

Note: None of the catalogs in this list are produced or sold by The Old Farmer’s Almanac. This is simply a list which both Almanac editors and readers have suggested. If you have a favorite, please tell us about them in the comments section below.

Once you’re ready to start planning your garden, check out our wonderful Garden Planner and play around for free to try it out!

Note: More and more seed companies are discontinuing or charging for print catalogs and putting them online instead. We enjoy having a print copy in our hands, paging through the beautiful pages, but we also understand the desire to save trees and many of these companies have a downloadable version online. We try to keep this page updated, but if you see any outdated information below, just post the correction so that we can update this list. Thank you.

Favorite seed companies

The Editors's picture

We’ve put a star * next to some of our favorite seed companies. Many are wonderful; as editors, we’ve just had experience in our gardeners with certain seed nurseries. Everyone has their favorites! In the comments below, you’ll see some reader recommendations.

seed company

I would like to suggest Osborne seeds.

They have a print catalog and an online catalog and a huge supply of certified organic seeds!! Osborneseed.com

Online seed catalogs

My favorite online sources are Swallowtail Garden Seeds and My Seed Needs. Neither company has a print catalog but browsing their websites is easy and enjoyable. Have always received excellent, speedy service and great germination rates from both.

Seed packets from both companies include specific germination and growing advice. My Seed Needs packets are gorgeous with beautiful artwork. Swallowtail's website makes it easy to learn about the different varieties of flowers. For example, they offer over 100 Zinnias but have categorized them by use (cut flowers, landscape and dwarf). They also have them presented by the different series (Benary's Giant, Profusion, Magellan, etc).

Please add the following 2 sites to the list. They are great online plant nurserys and ship to all 50 states. Native Wildflowers Nursery & Perennial Co

suggestions

Thanks so much for this list. I try and save my own seeds as much as possible. Our garden is almost 70 years old & I'm the 3rd generation to be taking care of our little piece of land. My neighbor calls it the botanical gardens which I find funny. I have a background in print/fine arts so I really enjoy the catalogs. Thanks for your recommendations. Hoping for a productive season.

Missing Rohrer Seeds

Rohrer Seeds is a 100 year-old family-owned seed company from the heart of Amish Country in Lancaster, PA. Their catalog is 100% non-GMO and they have a retail store that is incredible…largest seed selection in US as far as we know…with 1600+ varieties on the shelves.

Seed provider not listed: Renees Garden

Seed Catologs

You need to check out Wilhites in Poolville, Texas. Has some history.

Consider adding

I get a majority of my seeds from Seeds Now. I've always had great germination rates from them and they are very friendly. They also support the Safe Seeds Pledge.

I'd like to sugest Le Jardin du Gourmet

Artistic Gardens/Le Jardin du Gourmet. They offer small sample seed packs for as little as $.35. I like them to try new things without commiting to 200+ plants.

Seed catalog

Botanical interests catalog is my new favorite.

WWW.BURRELLSEEDS.COM

Burrell Seed Growers LLC is the Oldest Seed House in Colorado. 119 Years. Excellent Selection, Low Prices, Fast Shipping, Free Shipping on Packets, 1/4 Oz, Oz, 1/4 Lb, 1/2 Lb. Toll Free 1-844-254-SEED (7333).

Asian Garden to Table Seeds

Don't forget some Asian greens from Asian Garden to Table! Fast shipping, family run and a lot of helpful You Tube videos. If your tired of the huge sites that only inform you they took your money you will love ordering from here instead.

Heirloom Solutions

If you want true heirloom seeds and no GMO's this is the place to buy and the seed catalog is free.

seed catalog

I like to have a free seed catalog,because i'm intrested in diffrent things to grow in my little garden. I'm tired of the same old catalog like BURPEE,

Vermont/Wisconsin

Why does the Vermont Bean and Seed Co. seem to be operating out of Randolph Wisconsin?

Vermont Bean was purchased by

Vermont Bean was purchased by Jung Seed many years ago. Jung Seed is operated out of Randolph WI.

Going Native with Wildflowers, Grass, Trees and Shrubs

I'm going native on my third acre down in the West Texas High Plains! For water conservation, sustainable living, and to benefit my Texas Horned Lizards, beneficial ants, bees, butterflies, quail, cottontails and Bantam chicken flock, I like going with native trees, wildflowers, native grasses, shrubs to form a healthy permaculture instead of a traditional landscaped water thirsty yard treated with toxic chemicals. Just in three short years I've seen an increase in all types of birds, lizards, insects, ladybugs, quail and dove. I love Native American Seed Co. in Junction, Texas. Search them to see their beautiful online catalog. They will mail the catalog, via U.S.Snail, if you're like me and want to circle things, touch and dogear pages on a cold wintry day over a cup of coffee. I've also had good luck with Mexican Plum trees from Mossy Oak Nativ Nurseries down in Mississippi. Going to be ordering more from these knowledgeable folks who really care about protecting and harboring wildlife for our benefit, and improving and restoring native ranchland for our future.

Seed Companies

Sow True Seed in Asheville NC should be on your list!

Migardener and the rusted

Migardener and the rusted garden are good quality seeds. I lean more towards Migardener and both youtube channels can be very informative. Johnnys seeds is a scam in my opinion. Not only are they expensive, but the germination rate of their seeds has been almost non-existent.

Missed one!

Don't forget Pinetree Garden Seeds in Maine! Great little family run business with packets sized for the home gardener and very affordable!
