Find a wonderful list of free garden seed catalogs! Other than being in the garden, there’s nothing better than paging through colorful pages of flowers and bulbs, vegetables, fruits, shrubs, and green growing things! We’ve even included direct links for quick ordering from their web sites. 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. For a list of Canadian sites, click here

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.
