Seed Packets in Pot

It may feel like winter but the garden season begins in December with the arrival of the seed catalogs appearing in mailboxes and online. Here is a wonderful list of free garden seed catalogs and some of our favorites. Given the massive increase in gardening this past year, the growers have prepared plenty of stock and all hands are on deck. Start dreaming!

The catalogs are listed below in alphabetical order. Most of the seed and plant catalogs are complimentary; a handful might not be free but they are still worth considering. 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. 

40+ Seed Catalogs & Online Plant Sources

Our editors’ favorite seed companies are those that offer heirloom and hybrid open-pollinated and non-GMO seeds. We’ve put a star * next to some faves.

Heirloom Mountain has an eco friendly seed catalog

Nursery Closure

Sadly, Klehm's Song Sparrow Farm & Nursery is now closed. The last of their stock was sold off last year.

Free catalog also gives a free catalog from Co.

Where can we find free or low cost fruit trees?

I am trying to plant an orchard of several fruit trees (peaches, apples, pears, etc) but their cost is prohibited!!!!

Local Sources

The Editors's picture

Look for local sources such as your town or state extension service. Some sell trees and shrubs in the spring, though they may be native varieties.

If you’re located in the U.S., check out the Arbor Day Foundation. They offer fruit trees (and a variety of other trees) for sale for a fair price. 

Urban Farmer Seeds Catalog

Please add the seed catalog at Urban Farmer Seeds,

Ferry-Morse Seeds

Ferry-Morse seeds!

They've been in the seed game for a long time (1856 it looks like) and between retail stores and their website they have a decently vast selection of varieties. From flowers, herbs, veggies, microgreens, heirloom, organic, etc. All Non-GMO too.

Although it doesn't seem like they have a mailing catalog right now, they do have their website ( which is pretty easy to navigate and their prices are nearly unbeatable.

They also carry some of Jiffy's line of peat seed starting products like the greenhouses and peat strips, which I prefer.

Kitazawa Seeds

To this fantastic list, add Kitazawa - a stand by for my family with an excellent selection of Asian vegetables and a seed catalog with tasty Asian recipes.

Denver seeds

Heirloom mountain seedswoman gives a free catalog and the best quality I’ve seen

Small Seed Companies in NY

I would also recommend the Hudson Valley Seed Company in Accord NY and Fruition Seeds in Naples, NY. Both companies offer only heirloom/open pollinated seeds. Both companies are really great and provide excellent customer service. Fruition Seeds has also been offering free webinars and courses on their website during the Pandemic.

A great source for perennial plants

Spring Hill Nurseries

Great seed company to add. Also sells quality plant stands

Harris Seeds
Rochester, NY
My Harris Seeds 12 tray plant stand has lasted over 20 years!

Free seed catalogs

So disappointed no Canadian catalog companies listed.

Best seeds!

Johnny’s is my fave. Fresh. Park and Territorial have routinely failed me but never Johnny’s. Highly recommended! Am growing a nice winter bounty in my Greenhouse right now...

Garden designs

Hello. I am looking for a resource that has diagrams of various types of gardens: for flowers, small spaces, etc.
Thank you for your suggestions.

Meyer Seed Company in

Meyer Seed Company in Baltimore is great.

Charging for printed catalog


Sandia Seed Catalog - 100 Peppers and Tomatoes

Huge selection pepper seeds including Hatch Green Chile and Carolina Reaper. Over 40 tomato varieties offered. This website also has a new selection of vegetable seeds for beginner gardeners. Great seeds and fast shipping. NonGMO.

Another seed vendor to add

Swallowtail seeds in the north Bay Area, California.
Great selection of perennial seed and other seed.

Seedgro for non-gmo seeds

Seedgro is another resource for non-GMO vegetable and herb seeds

Seed company

Please add, they have non GMO heirloom vegetable, fruit, and herb seed. They are shipped from Amazon.

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!!

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).


Add to List for Great Plants

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


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.
