Gardeners Wish Books

When I was growing up one of the most exciting times was when the Sears Wish Book came. I remember spending hours looking through the pages and pages of toys and dreaming about all the fun I could have with them.

Now I’m all grown up and my wish book has changed. Now I like to read gardening catalogs and dream about all the great food I could grow. Now is garden planning time and the best time to enjoy a few good garden catalogs.

I still love the print versions, but I also enjoy surfing seed and garden supply websites.

Here are just a few to check out:

Burpee Garden supply companyBurpee

Burpee is one of the biggies in the garden seed and supply world. I buy mostly Burpee seeds because they’re sold at my local Walmart. But I still like the catalog for dreaming value and the selection is much greater than what’s available at Walmart.
