For Greener Thumbs, Tip #3:
Buy your seeds now. Use online sites and many of them will send you a free catalog as well. Though, I prefer the online method so as not to create more waste with the seed catalogs they send.
If you’re like me, the first seed catalog I received got me so excited that I wanted to buy everything that looked good to me! But, remember that starting from seed is a lot of work and requires a lot of patience. Consider how much room you have as well to grow your veggies/fruits/plants.
Another thing, you can easily find a lot of seed companies when you search online. Ask gardeners or people you trust for their opinion on which seed companies worked best for them and which had best seed quality.
Remember to check shipping costs too. Often that can be more than the seeds. If it’s a common type plant, I’d recommend going to a local garden center or store to get. The nice thing about catalogs is that you can find unique items there.
