Seed Catalogs Everywhere!
But for those who are still procrastinating, we have put together a list of the best seed catalogs for you. Some of them also have online flip versions of their catalogs. I don't know about you, but as nice as the online flip catalogs are, it is still much more fun to hold the catalogs in my hands and spread them all out to shop and make my seed choices.
Here is what we came up with for you for the best in seeds, in no particular order. There may be a nominal charge for some of the catalogs, but most of them are free for the asking. Have fun shopping!
