Seed Catalogs!

maryannnewcomer | Posted in Mountain West Gardening on

Yesterday, December 1, my first 2024 seed catalog showed up in the mail. It was from Seed Saver’s Exchange, an organization I really admire. Swan Island’s luscious Dahlia catalog arrived two weeks ago. I am prepared. This always throws me for a loop.

How can it be time to order for the next garden season when you just got the planting beds tucked in from THIS year? 

I am curious, how do you organize and order seeds and plants for the next year?

    Seed catalogs always inspire so much garden lust. It's so easy to get swept away by the beautiful pictures! I like to plan to plan my garden out first and then look at catalogs/websites to find the varieties that will work best with my plan, but I am certainly guilty of adding things to the cart that I don't have a plan for but just want for no particular reason other than it has struck my fancy.
