What are everyone's favorite catalog for bulb and perennial ordering? I just thought I'd take a poll. Thank you!
Barbara from Cleveland, OH
I buy seeds from park seed. Plants from Michigan bulb, and vegetables from gurneys.
Spring Hill is my favorite.
I like my regional catalog, more acclimatized to local conditions. Here in the Pacific Northwest it's Skagit Gardens in Mount Vernon, famous tulip and daffodil country. Google them and your jaw will hit the floor.
Before you buy any gardening plants or tools, check them out at The Garden Watchdog:
This has saved my bacon, not to mention my money, many times. People rate garden sellers. You can find the highest rated bulb and plant sellers here and find out who carries the exact material you are looking for.
Good luck, Susan
Gurney's, or seeds from Burpee.
If you are interested in daylilies, the best place I've found is Gilbert Wild in Sarcoxie, MO. They also carry a large variety of ferns and iris. Check them out at www.gilbertwild.com. Once you get on their mailing list, you'll receive a catalog, then follow-up sales flyers with great deals. Everything I've ordered from them over the years has done well. I've found that daylilies are addictive--so many to choose from and so little yard!
So many garden catalogs, so little time. I received a record number this year. I think 17 or 18. I like Pinetree Garden Seeds (superseeds.com,) they are very economical. Beginner's would probably need some help, as they don't have a lot of pictures. They have limited varieties, too, along with soapmaking supplies, skincare oils, books, oh my they have books, and some tools. I also like Jung's and Park Seeds. Last year I ordered some Lily bulbs during Dutch Gardens season end sale, and the bulbs were enormous. Another time I ordered lavender from Burgess (eburgess.com,) and I couldn't get over the quality of the plants for the price. It's been 20 years and they still charge the same price for the lavender plants. Their S&H went up. Carol
