Before this past year, I’d buy all my seeds at Lowes or Home Depot and plan my garden based on what was available in their selection.

I’m starting with seeds because that’s where I currently am in the process. I had thought my only options for seeds were at the big home improvement stores but it turns out there’s a vast world out there of options and varieties.

I first discovered Botanical Interests at my local Sprouts grocery store and at the nearby nursery. Both places had a really wide section of these beautifully packaged seeds with the cutest illustrations.

Kitazawa Seed Company had built a thriving business selling bulk seeds and specializing in Japanese varieties.

If you follow a lot of gardening Instagramming accounts, you’ll find that people love this company! Baker Creek has rare seeds that bring fun and uniqueness to your garden.
