Reviewing Seed Catalogs

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

With some very chilly weather hitting the area and winter finally settling in, now is a good time to check out plant/seed catalogs and online websites.  Here are some choices that may be of interest to you.

Jung Seeds & Plants:  I've had a pretty good experience with Jung's over the years, their shipping is timely (some outfits will ship starter plants/stock way too early for northern states) and their product is sound.  You can't go wrong with their veggie lineup.

Burpee:  Another standby, and their seed packets can be seen in many stores come late winter/early spring.  Menards, Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, True Value and major grocery stores come to mind.  The Burpee website has a product review section which is kind of nice in making purchasing decisions.

Park Seed Co.:  This is another company with quite a bit of history, 143 years in fact.  Reasonably priced, their catalog has good content and their sale items are attractive, as opposed to lower quality offerings on other, less popular sites. 

Burgess:  Another popular company, also a brand you'll find in the stores come spring.  Some of their bulb collection is hit or miss.  In my experience the rate of a bad bulb is higher than other companies.


Mike's Indoor Garden Update:  I'll be harvesting green beans soon!
