A Garden Expert Shares the 10 Best Seed Catalogs for 2024

If you love to curl up with a seed catalog and devour it like a good book, this is my roundup of the best seed catalogs that I order from year after year for my vegetable, herb, and flower gardens.

You'll find heirloom seeds, certified organic seeds, open-pollinated seeds, and hybrid seeds bred for pest and disease resistance, as well as seed garlic, seed potatoes, onion sets, shallot sets, and asparagus crowns.

Here, I’ve gathered a list of the best seed catalogs you can order from this year.

High Mowing Organic Seeds (Wolcott, VT)


Their seed catalog (available by mail and online) is unlike other garden seed catalogs in that it also features personal profiles on the growers, farmers, and gardeners who use their seeds. They’re a great bonus read!


Pinetree Garden Seeds (New Gloucester, ME)

I’ve only been using their seeds for the past few years, but have strong germination rates and productive harvests every time, so I feel confident in recommending them.


Sow True Seed (Asheville, NC)

The worker-owned cooperative prints a rather petite catalog compared to some other companies, but it’s packed with seed varieties ranging from classic to unique.


Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (Mansfield, MO)

It’s chock full of seed history, growing resources, recipes, and page after page of eye candy featuring more than 1,000 heirloom seed varieties (which, if you can believe it, is only a fraction of their full selection).


Seed Savers Exchange (Decorah, IA)

They collect and store thousands of rare heirloom seed varieties in the country’s largest nongovernmental seed bank, and operate the world’s largest online seed exchange where members can search and swap open-pollinated seeds and plants.
