If you’re planning your next garden, you’re probably thinking about buying seeds. I put together a list of 21 seed companies that will send you a free catalog to help with your gardening plans.
It’s time to start planning your garden! Part of planning is deciding what you’re going to grow, and what brand of seeds you’ll buy if you haven’t been saving seeds.
Be sure to choose heirloom or organic seeds if you plan to save seeds this year since seeds from hybrid plants will be sterile or give you unexpected results. If you’re still trying to figure out what to grow this year, many seed companies will send you a free catalog.
Take a look through this list, and order from those companies that align with your values.
