I am such an addict about gardening. I grab every magazine I see in the stores, and have a library of books that is actually causing the bookshelf to groan from the weight, but that's another story. I was leafing through an old gardening magazine (yes, I do keep them) and found an ad for Forest Farm. Well, I went to their site today and I can't tell you how impressed I am! They offer 500 kinds of American native plants alone. The couple started their farm idea when they discussed on their honeymoon what they wanted to do with the rest of their lives. It's a great story in the "about us" section and, lo and behold 23 years later they have an exceptional business. I have ordered their 500 page (yes, 500 pages) catalog and can't wait to leaf through it. Please go visit their site soon. I know you will be as excited as I am. And I have to borrow a phrase I saw on their site "...plant a tree and the earth will sing." Doesn't that say it all?
Wildseed Farms is a working wildflower seed farm that sells directly to the consumer. They offer seeds for over 90 varieties of wildflowers, native grasses, regional wildflower mixes, exotic garden varieties, and herbs. You can order online or request a copy of their catalog be sent to you.
Here's another interesting site called Plant Seeker. You can buy and/or sell a variety of plants from aroids to trees. They even list software and photography requests. Check them out soon.
