‘Tis the season for seed catalogues!
We assume that most people who are checking out our website are Pacific Northwesterners. Probably Oregonians. Perhaps Portlanders. So here’s a list of local, organic, heirloom edible-focused seed companies that are suitable for gardeners in our area:
- Adaptive Seed Co.
- Botanical Interests
- Ed Hume Seeds (web only)
- Horizon Herbs
- Lonesome Whistle Farm
- Nichols Garden Nursery (web only)
- One Green World [sells plants, not seeds...but we can't resist including this awesome nursery]
- Renee’s Garden (web only)
- Seeds of Change
- Seed Savers Exchange
- Siskiyou Seeds
- Territorial Seed Co.
- Uprising Seeds
- Wild Garden Seed
There are many other quality seed companies out there (check out this list for an overwhelmingly comprehensive selection), and we couldn’t possibly hope to list them all here. If you have a favorite supplier that we haven’t included, let us know.
And if you’re looking for seeds beyond the Northwest, here are a few tips for finding a quality purveyor: try to find a nursery that tests their seeds in your climate, preserves rare varieties, and/or focuses on organic production. Good luck…and enjoy your winter reading!
