Steele Plant Company | Online shop only.
At C & M, we love a great sweet potato. While this is not a catalog, I wanted to include a resource for these delicious veggies. Also, we have grown the "Bunch" Porto Ricos and can attest they have a naturally sweet taste that differs from what you get at the grocery store - we'd say they are better!
Johnny's Selected Seeds | Print and digital versions.
An employee-owned company offering non-gmo, organic, hybrid, and open-pollinated options. If you’re looking for options that are disease resistant and adapt to climate, then hybrids might be your answer!

A line of seeds that have been tested for every major US climate zone. Plenty of non-GMO, organic, heirloom, hybrid, and open-pollinated options.

Once the holidays pass and the new year begins, what do you want to see and smell around your home? We say fresh, fragrant flowers! Amaryllis and paperwhites are some of the easiest bulbs to grow.
