Do you love getting free seed and plant catalogs in the mail? I've got a great list of almost 50 places where you can request free seed and plant catalogs.

Now that you've had a chance to receive some of these free seed and plant catalogs, I'd like to know - what are your favorite seed and plant catalogs?

Shumway's Rule!

R.H.Shumway's catalog takes me back 50 years when everything had real flavor. Of course, their stuff still tastes great!
—Guest B.H.Wilson

Favorite Seed & Plant Catalog

The best I have found for regular and unusual varieties is Richters Herb Farm, Goodwood, Ontario, CANADA.
—Guest Maddy

I have just about tried them all!

Just last year ordered from Michigan and was greatly disappointed in the size of plants, they were so small and at that price, I probably would have paid local for 1/2 gal size. Lesson learned, the gogi berry I asked for a replacement and they never responded. Rictors in Canada has the coolest stuff, but their return/replacement policy sucks! I have been gardening since 66, so kinda have gotten around. Things have gotten stricter now with the economy. There was one company I was looking for here that had a lifetime guarantee, can’t remember who they were?
