Garden catalogs online links



A compiled list of Garden catalogs and online sites is at the bottom of this article.

Have you received any garden catalogs in the mail this year? Many gardeners now go directly to a garden website when they are looking for plants to buy but there is still a big benefit to having print catalogs sent to your home.  Most garden catalogs are full of gardening advice; many give you planting charts, ideas for plant combinations and other tips.  Many catalogs can be used as references and plant ID guides.  With a number of catalogs at hand you can easily compare prices for a plant you are considering for your garden.  And prices for the same plant can vary tremendously from company to company.  A wise gardener searches through many catalogs before placing an order.

Catalogs can be browsed while sitting in a comfortable chair and flipping through them you may see plants you were unaware of or new varieties of favorite species.  Some catalogs are so beautiful you’ll want them just to look at when winter is long and dark.   Catalogs often offer special discounts and deals that you can get even if you go to the website to actually place your order. You can fill out the enclosed order sheet then instead of mailing it in, proceed to the website to order.  Having a list of plants you want to purchase before you go to a garden store website can save you a lot of time. 

When shopping garden catalogs do remember that photos are often touched up to make flowers look a different color or larger and plants look bigger and fuller.  And when you compare prices make sure you are comparing the same thing.  Bareroot or potted, 4 inch pot or 1 gallon size, prices vary by size and condition of the plant.  The best catalogs also provide scientific, (Latin) names for all but the most common plants so that a common name won’t confuse you as to what plant you are actually buying.

Another thing to consider when purchasing plants from a catalog is the shipping cost.  Some places also add a packing fee.  Compare those prices as well as the plant cost.  You may want to source plants grown in a nursery in your planting zone or a lower zone.  These may adjust easier to your garden.  Also always check the hardiness zone carefully.  A trend among some catalogs lately has been to use a little trick where they list a species as hardy from zone 3-11 and then in small print you’ll see “ must bring inside before frost in zones 3-7”. 

So how do you get catalogs sent to your door?  Generally you need to request them.  Do this early before supplies run out.  Once you purchase something from a company you may receive a catalog automatically but some companies no longer do this.  Since you are reading this on line you will probably be able to simply click on the links below and find a button to request a catalog.  But people can also write to garden stores and request catalogs after getting the address on line.

This list below was compiled in 2017. It's in alphabetical order and gives a short summary of what the catalog offers. I try to update listings from time to time as I discover new garden catalogs.  Most of the companies listed send catalogs free or have on line catalogs.  Because a company is on this list does not imply any recommendation for that company.  And undoubtedly there are some companies who offer garden catalogs that aren’t included here. If you have a garden catalog that isn't listed or know of one please send me an email and I'll check it out and include it.  In some cases the link will take you directly to a request for a print catalog, in others you’ll need to browse the site for that link.  And you don’t have to ask for a catalog when you use these links – you can start shopping immediately.
