Lynda, I, too, appreciate Seeds of Change, not just for their seeds, but also for the excellent information on their website, which can be found by clicking on the Digging in the Dirt link. And although I have gotten the Shumway’s catalog in the past, frankly, it never really grabbed my eye. I never thought about supplies . . . I will have to compare them with my current favorite,Silver Creek Supply. (I have to say I never knew they had a website, and never knew they were affiliated with DoItBest Centers. I would get their print catalog if you want seed starting supplies, because the website seems geared only to homeowners and not serious growers.) Seeds from Italy I had never heard of, and I’m glad I did! There is a lot of Italian and Sicilian heritage on my mother’s side of the family and they will all be glad to hear of this company, even my Grandmother, who, at 94, is no longer gardening. (Well, she might keep a pot of basil and a pot of parsley going . . .) Lynda, if you know of any more unusual seed or plant companies, please don’t be embarassed to share them with us. You’re among fellow addicts–uh, I mean, friends.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
