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.

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!


I buy a lot of my seeds from Annies heirloom seeds

As I am in Canada and use your calendar for planting in my zone having Canadian seed companies might be an interesting add to your list.

In Canada

Thank you Johanne for your comment - I too am in Canada and often feel we are out of the loop.

Sow True Seed is a company I

Sow True Seed is a company I just became familiar with last year. They offer a nice selection & they carry seeds in bulk for growing micro-greens & sprouts.

Seed companies

I am wondering why there are no or very few seed companies in the South? I've yet to see a seed company in zone 8. I live in Texas and most of the seed companies are "up North". Would you be able to answer my wonderings?
Thank you kindly!


Was Thompson-Morgan bought out by Gurney's? That's where the T-M link takes me...


The Editors's picture

Thompson-Morgan is based in the UK; their American associate is Gurney’s.


I've been watching MIgardener for quite a while on youtube and he provides great gardening information. The seed store at has a great selection of organic/non-GMO seeds at only .99 cents per pack as well as other gardening supplies. I just ordered five different tomato seed types to try this season and his seed packs are all hand packed with more seed than the average seed company.

Online Company

Found these folks recently. Love their website and the items I've ordered have been very good quality. And even more, I appreciate that when I had a complex question they took the time to help me figure out a solution.

And we got to talking . . . turns out while the website is new, the business is operated by folks who have been in gardening for years, working for others and now for themselves. Knowledgeable, helpful and with great grower connections to be able to source high quality (we all know quality varies in gardening products).

Nice selection of dahlias - my favorite - with lots of dinnerplates.

Ya left out my favorite seed seller

If it's tomato or pepper seed (heirloom) you're looking for, there is only 1 option.
Unbelievable selection, reasonable prices, free shipping and great customer service.
10 year customer here, and I've had 100% germination from these folks.
It's worth your consideration. I check this site first.

Can't wait to plant!

These are all incredible sources, thanks! May I add my preferred seed company? Sustainable Seed Co has a terrific selection of heirloom as well as organic seed for cheap yet their quality is top tier. Here is their site,

One of my favorites

R. H. Shumway, related to Jung's Seed Co. Ordered from the for several years now and very happy with service and products!

Looking for history

My dad use to buy seeds through the mail. I remember the box that was delivered said on it 'The seeds that pay are sold by May'. Any history on that company?

I think I know the answer

I'm almost sure those seeds were from Earl May, a nursery based out of Shenandoah, Iowa.
They no longer grow anything, but buy all their stock from local growers. I believe they have 1100 retail stores, in several States. Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas for sure.

Another good one is South GA

Another good one is South GA Seed Company. Small seed company only around 130 varieties, but they only sell O.P. Heirlooms. They sell seed banks too. website is prices pretty fair.

Please consider adding

Another great one is Caladium World. They have been around for 30 years and specialize in caladium bulbs. Product, delivery and service has never let me down. The best quality and size of bulbs. Never a bad bulb in the bunch when I receive them.

Seed Bank is an online

Seed Bank is an online retailer of non-GMO garden seeds. Here is the link:
