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 We try to keep this page updated, but if you see any outdated information below, just post the correction so that we can update this list.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.

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.

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!
Gracie

Thompson-Morgan

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

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

MIgardener

I've been watching MIgardener for quite a while on youtube and he provides great gardening information. The seed store at migardener.com 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.
Timeless-Tomatoes.
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, www.sustainableseedco.com

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 www.southgaseedco.com 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: www.seed-bank.ca

Looks like they don't send

Looks like they don't send orders outside of Canada :(

Please consider adding

Definitely check out greenwoodnursery.com. The nursery has been in business since 1978 and on the web since 1994. They have over 400 products listed from Trees and shrubs to ground cover and perennials. They sell the best plants for the best value.
