Seed catalog deals

Just in case you don't "do" Facebook, I wanted to let you know about three seed catalog specials that have come across my desk...

1. Nichols Garden Nursery: They are offering 10% off orders of vegetable, herb and flower seeds. The promo code to use is "elephant" and the offer expires on Monday, Nov. 25. I know the Nichols personally and they are lovely folks. They are truly committed to gardening organically and eating healthfully.

2. Renee's Garden Seeds: She is offering 15% off all orders through Dec. 17. The promo code is "HOLIDAY13" and the discount applies to your entire order. I've gotten seeds from Renee's for several years now. I love the unusual varieties she carries and her customer service is excellent! I see they have several great gift ideas for gardeners as well so be sure to check them out.

3. Johnny's Selected Seeds: These folks will give you $10 off any order of $30 or more. The offer code is 14-1079, and you can use it either for online orders or telephone orders. The offer is good until Jan. 10, 2014. I've bought seeds from them that I've been very happy with, and they're also a good source for different thicknesses of floating row covers as well as red plastic tomato mulch.

The above offers are a great way to start getting your 2014 garden plans organized and each company has gifts for the gardeners on your list! (can I be on your list?)
