First seed catalogue :)

Ginny McLean_Petite_GardenNovember 22, 2012

So we start another winter planning our spring with the first catalogue. T&T Seeds arrived today; first one for me. Haven't even opened it yet since I won't be ordering anything new for spring...........maybe. :) I certainly don't need anything and will actually need to give away seed before it is no longer viable. Still updating my list........ it has been an unusual fall to say the least. :(

If anyone is looking for something in particular, please drop me a line and I will check if I have it before I get my update posted.

Sending everyone a virtual hot beverage and some quiet catalogue time. :)

Now, with so many catalogues on line, it is not as much fun to
receive the printed ones. Most of my seed acquisitions are from the sales.

I like the printed ones. Hard to bring your computer to bed with you to peruse page after page of eye candy. :)

I like the printed ones too. I will have to order some seeds this year. Haven't gotten any in the mail yet. Richters is my favorite. Any suggestions?

T & T came today. There's a new artist rose named for one of Tom Thomson's paintings - "Campfire". I love Tom Thomson... I really have this feeling i'm going to need a new garden bed....

Lol, Marcia! Eye candy in bed; I like that idea! In fact, I indulge myself every season!

I did notice that T&T also has Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea this year! Then I closed the catalogue.......:)

I'm a print girl too. Did anyone notice in T&T's note to customers that there is a P.S. that says "A sad goodbye to a longtime mail order competitor "McFaydens Seeds" They closed their mail order portion"

I"m kinda sad over that I like ordering from McFayden. Cheryl

Oh, that's too bad about McFayden. I guess that means one less catalogue.

I'm sure all the online sources are giving some seed companies a run for their money.

I like the print catalogues, too. I've just got the Stokes catalogue so far - besides Wm Dam, I'm not sure which other ones I'll get because I've only been ordering from Stokes & Wm Dam. I've got a shopping cart already started at Stokes - I thought I might try the Toscana Strawberries, Santa Cruz Begonia and the new hanging pansies, and they all need to be started early.
