It's that time of year. Actually, I should already be a little bit further into the process.
I have three places that really float my boat when it comes to selection and customer service. My top three choices are: Botanical Interests, Indiana Berry & Plant, and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.
Botanical Interests is, hands down, my favorite source. This year they definitely cemented a place in my heart by printing natural plant dyes for wool dying information in the catalog!
Indiana Berry & Plant is my go-to source for actual plants that are best for my growing conditions. Their customer service is incredible! Baker Creek was my "gateway" to purchasing heirloom seeds. While I appreciate their enormous variety, I find the catalog to be incredibly overwhelming...in a good way, but too much for my brain to process and choose from.
A side effect of ordering a seed catalog is how you magically get put on just about every other seed catalog mailing list resulting in a bumper crop of catalogs that are not needed.
As soon as the inventory of purchased and saved seeds is complete, it will be time to peruse, dream a little about my hands getting in the dirt, and then place those orders!
What are you planting this year?
