catalog recommendations?

Hi everyone,

I would like to sign up for some seed catalogs so when I get back from Canada I can start out the new year by planning my 2014 grow list. I'm also planning to set up a proper seed starting system with shelves and lights and everything so I can do this right.

Which catalogs do you all recommend? I am especially interested in varieties that do well in our climate, and anything that produces well in a smaller space is of particular interest to me. Since my yard is small my focus tends to be growing as much as I can in a small space.

Looking forward to everyone's recommendations :)

RE: catalog recommendations?

These are probably my four favorites, but I order from others also, like Dixondale Farms for onions.

RE: catalog recommendations?

I'll list some different ones than Carol did, but her 4 favorites are some of my favorites too.

Sample Seed Shop ( This small company is owned and operated by a Garden Web member named Remy. Unless otherwise stated, her seed packets all are $1.50. Everything I've grown from her seeds has done exceptionally well for me.

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. ( This employee-owned and operated company specializes in southern heirloom varieties and has a wonderful selection. I could have pretty much the garden I want every year by only purchasing seeds from them (as long as I could keep getting my onions from Dixondale).

Victory Seed.( This is one of the first companies from whom I purchased seed online and remains a favorite.

Nichols Garden Nursery ( Fantastic selection and all kinds of herbs (both seeds and in plant form.)

Swallowtail Garden Seeds. ( Wonderful varieties. It is dangerous for me to stay too long at their website because I want to buy one of every flower variety they offer.

That's a few to keep you busy.
