What are the pros? Photographs, articles

What are the cons? NOTHING

Review:

No other seed catalog can get you through cold winter nights like this one! It makes me scream "I WANT ALL THE SEEDS!" every time I look at it! It gives me dreams of next years garden...and even if I screw up and my garden fails (*shakes fist at local deer and raccoons*), it at least gives me a beautiful vision of what could be! I have ordered seeds from Bakers Creek in the past....loved them and the customer service is beyond compare. But this catalog is amazing.....great articles, great photography, great seed selection!

What are the pros? Photo for every variety

What are the cons? Not every country is listed

Review:

I just LOVE how there is a photo for every variety of plant on offer, love even more that a country of origin is listed, and also includes short story within the description (if available). I got the 2014 catalog as a gift from my mother and since then I couldn't wait to get the newest issue. I unsurprisingly read the catalog back and forth while I dreamed about what my garden could look like; it's amazing that so many species are available; even obscure varieties that I'd seen abroad, or in my childhood; I can't wait for spring to come so that I can start planting! The back of the catalog also offers advice on how to plant and store seeds in full detail. Love it!

What are the pros? It gets me through the winter!

What are the cons? Can't grow one of everything!

Review:

The catalog reads like a National Geographic with outstanding photography and historical information. As a horticulturist by profession I can truly appreciate the time and effort that must go into it. I have given the Whole Seed Catalog away as Christmas presents the last few years and all my garden friends have requested nothing else as long as one is printed! It is "eye-candy" and gets all of us through the cold, dark days of winter here in the Midwest. It is an amazing tribute to not only the story and availability behind seed collections, but a wonderful testimony to the attempts by all at Baker Creek to keep them. My hat and heart are off to you! Thank you! Thank you! P.S. they have also been extremely generous in providing seeds, catalogs, etc. in my community garden efforts over the years.

Review:

The Whole Seed Catalog itself is a joy to receive and share. It is a thrilling moment when it finally arrives! The work that is being done in seed preservation by Baker Creek makes them all REAL HEROS to me and my master gardener friends. The seeds we have ordered and planted have exceeded all our expectations. Thank you Baker Creek for all you do, Don't ever stop being a shining example of what people can do to protect biodiversity and future generations right to pure food.
