When we’re ordering seeds for the Organic Gardening test garden, we tend to reach for the dog-eared catalogs of a few favorite suppliers (or head to their websites). There are many other outstanding seed companies, some with more specialized offerings, but we usually find what we’re after from this baker’s dozen of sources. Together, they sell an overwhelming, annually changing array of garden seeds—more than enough to fuel our planting fever in winter.
