    I was just wondering what your favorite catalog was. Even though its early for next year, now is the time to sign up to be on their list. or do you use the internet for your seed needs?

    For veggies I like William Dam Seeds (Canadian)
    I'm not sure I have a favorite for flowers.

    Chiltern Seeds for me (UK) as they seem to do almost every type of seed available whether it's flowers or fruit and veggies.

    I can't pick just one! I like Pinetree Seeds for small amounts of vegetable seeds; Artistic Gardens for herb seeds (they have 35 cent sample packs and really reasonable shipping); Jung for the large packs of bean, corn, etc. seeds, and I drool over Territorial Seeds, but they are a bit pricey for this gardener.
    I usually order on-line after making out the catalog's order form--that way I don't get distracted and I have a record of what I ordered without booting up the computer.

    i've only used thompson & morgan uk which i think has a massive selection. flowers, veggies, herbs and most other things you need for the garden. i'll be having a look at chiltern seeds (thanks eileen :) ) not heard of that one.

    I like this topic. I have used Thompson & Morgan, but will check out some of these other seed houses.
