The Best Seed Catalogs of 2023

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.

There’s a lot to look forward to with spring (and summer and fall) gardens, and it all begins in the pages of seed catalogs.

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).


Kitazawa Seed Company (Oakland, CA)

This was one of the first seed companies I ever ordered from, and they continue to be an important source for many of the herb and vegetable seeds I sow each year.


Botanical Interests (Broomfield, CO)

They carry a curated selection of just over 600 varieties of organic, heirloom, and native seeds. You can request a seed catalog in the mail or browse a digital version online.


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.


Fedco Seeds (Clinton, ME)

I mostly know them for their seed selection, but Fedco also carries seed potatoes, onion sets, trees, and bulbs. They operate seasonally, which helps keep prices low.
