One of my favorite parts about winter is perusing the wonderful seed catalogs for my spring garden. Since I am in the south, I can garden all year, but I cannot grow everything in January! I have recently added a few gardening catalogs to my repertoire and am excited to share them with you.
If you live in the southeast, or in the south or coastal regions in general, than this catalog is for you. Particularly helpful because it is also a growing guide with all the information you need on various crops in order to grow them well. I especially appreciate the “suited or the southeast” which generally means it can handle heat and/or drought.
While I do not live particularly close to the coast, about 6 hours away, I do live in Louisiana which has its own bizarre coastline. They hail from southern coastal British Columbia which has an average frost date of November 2nd and last frost March 28th, which is close to here, November 15th and March 15th respectively. They also have extremely helpful planting chart!
I have loved this one for a while. What is so fascinating is the many different origins of their amazon selection. Which is very helpful when thinking about my own area and what non-native varieties have done well here. Definitely a good one to check out.
If you need fruiting trees and vegetables, this can be a great one stop shop. They have several varieties that are suitable to the urban homestead such as dwarf cherries. Definitely get a hold of their catalog and check out the many different varieties they offer.
A popular one for homesteaders because of their heirloom, non-GMO, varieties that allow self sufficiency through seed saving. They have a wonderful selection and this year
One of the things I appreciate about Johnny’s is the nice selection of cover crops and bulk amounts of seeds. While I am an urban homesteader, I am constantly seeking out grass replacement and quick growing crops that my chickens can eat as I move the chicken tractor across the “lawn”.
They have a commercial catalog available, so if you have land and the money you can order hundreds of fruit plants, trees and other perennials such as asparagus from them. Stark Bro’s was highly recommended for fruit trees and this past December I purchased Asian pear and apple varieties for my urban homestead.
This is a wonderful family based business that you can shop online for your seeds. They have heirloom, non-GMO seeds available for the home gardener as well as gardening calculators! Definitely check them out.
There are many different places to get flowers but the varieties from Floret are stunning. A small 2 acre flower farm in the Pacific Northwest with many beautiful and unique varieties so you can have your own cut flower garden.
