Seed Catalogs for Cutting Gardens

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

With the 2009 gardening season approaching, the seed and garden catalogs will soon be available. A number of the catalogs will be of special interest to those with cutting gardens.


Select Seeds

Select Seeds specializes in heirloom varieties. However, they also carry seeds, plants, and bulbs of hybrids and newer varieties.

This company has taken the Safe Seed Pledge to not sell genetically modified seeds or plants.

With this catalog, itís easy to tell which varieties make good cut or dried flowers. Throughout the entries are symbols beside the name of each recommended variety.

Of special interest will be the heirloom, fragrant, sweet pea collection. This would be great for cut flower gardens. Both seeds and sweet pea plants are available. There is also a delightful collection of heirloom gladiolus bulbs, which would be perfect for cut flowers.

This catalog has a helpful index.


Territorial Seed

With this catalog, itís easy to find the cut and dried flower varieties. It has a special symbol beside the name of each recommended plant.

Territorial offers a wide variety of flower seeds and plants along with gardening supplies. They sell organic and biodynamic seeds.

This catalog has complete details on how to grow each kind of plant. There is in-depth information on germination, which is particularly helpful to new gardeners.

There is a helpful index so you can quickly find what youíre looking for.


Thompson and Morgan

This is a wonderful choice for cut flower growers. The catalog devotes an entire section to cut and dried flowers. In addition, other suitable varieties are indicated with a symbol beside the name.

Under each flower listing, youíll see detailed instructions on how to grow it from seed. There is complete information on its growing conditions. This gives the days to germination, the ideal temperature for germination, and so on.
