Is it spring yet? The new seed catalogs are rolling in and the MOTHER EARTH NEWS team is getting our indoor seed-starting shelves set up. (Here’s a great plan for a DIY seed starting bookcase!) If you haven’t yet discovered the wonderful world of seed catalogs, you’ll find a sampling of these enticing publications (and their websites) below. Seed catalogs and websites are a terrific place to learn about all aspects of gardening. Many companies offer detailed growing advice, including tips on pest control.

If you want more information on any of the companies shown, you’ll find it in our directory of over 500 mail-order seed companies. You can locate companies in your region, find out how much of their seed is certified organic, learn what their particular specialties are and plenty more.

Need a certain variety you can't find in your seed catalogs at home? Try our online custom seed search to quickly find sources for the specific varieties you're looking for. Happy seed shopping!
