It was a lazy day Sunday in my neck of the woods. Too early and cold to do anything outside. I have been doing research and ordering my seeds for this up coming season. As I continue to check through my piles of seed and flower catalogs I can't help but wonder WHO will have the best product. Curious to what my fellow garden friends thoughts are on ordering seeds and plants this year. Last week at a garden club meeting I couldn't stop ranting about the seed selection and quality of the product over at Territorial Seed Company. So here is my pile of catalogs I am looking at right now:
If you have ordered from these companies before I would love to hear your opinion. There aren't many of you blogging about what seed catalogs you use. I know many of my friends in the garden group use your own seeds that you have dried.
Territorial Seed Company - I have wonderful success ordering from them. When I requested a catalog it came with in a week. The seeds look very healthy and I will be able to get most of the planted by the end of this month so I can give more info at that time.
BURPEE - Has always been a favorite of mine mainly because you can find a great selection locally and online. Fast SERVICE and I have Never had a problem with their seeds. This year I hope to try some of their plants.
BlueStone Perennials - This is my first year ordering from them. They are offering a 25% discount to those who get their order in my March 25 so be sure to check them out soon. I can't wait to see how those plants arrive when it is time to plant in my zone.
Spring Hill - I filled my city garden with their annuals a few years back. I have an order sitting on my desk ready to get in before the Double your Money offer expires on April 15. They are the only catalog I have received with the Chocolate Cosmos . Can't wait to give these lovely blooms a try. Check out the photo at their site. I might have to drive down to Tipp City on one of our Garden Summer tours. Does anyone know where that is in Ohio?!
Stark Brothers - Had to add this grower because we have purchased many fruit trees of of them in the past few years that have been producing like crazy. Not to mention they had the best prices and the product was in good quality when it arrived.
Michigan Blub - I have ordered spring bulbs from them in the past. They have some great sales running this time of year so I do have an order for them as well. I am curious to grow these Crocusmia because they say little care and they attract butterflies and humming birds.
Off to dream of the spring soon to come!
