Seed Catalogs

While it's not officially winter yet, seed catalogs have begun arriving in the mail and gardeners are already making plans for 2000. Gardeners can purchase seeds at local garden centers and mail-order companies. Most mail-order seed companies will automatically send catalogs to individuals who have purchased products from the business in recent years. New customers can obtain catalogs by mail or computer via the web. Most catalogs are free.

For your convenience, the mailing addresses and web sites of several mail-order seedcompanies are provided.
