Catalogs for Garden Thrill Seekers

If the same ol' same ol' in mainstream garden catalog plant offerings just doesn't do it for you anymore, you might be a slightly jaded gardener. If, like me, you increasingly need a plant to be rare, or unusual in color or form, or organic, or gourmet, or an heirloom... or a rare, unusual, organic, gourmet heirloom that can only be purchased during a full moon in February in order to feel that high when you buy, you need to look for collector's catalogs.

Here are a few of my favorite garden catalogs offering the really cool and unusual stuff...

Plant Delights Nursery

You can also find some very interesting and exotic plant offerings on ebay. Just check the seller's rating before you buy.


  1. I actually found Renee's Garden seeds at my local garden center last year, and I have to put in a little plug for them. All of the different seeds I started germinated well and did fantastic for me.

    High Country Gardens just came in the mail again... I'm so in trouble there. And Plant Delights... yikes!

  2. Okay, here's a couple of my fav's:

    -whatcom seeds

    -thompson and morgan;term=seed

    -botanical interests

    -alchemy works
    This site is cool to visit regardless!
