It's always lots of fun to browse through seed catalogs and peruse the racks of seeds at the garden store, marveling at the diversity and beauty of all the varied plants you can grow. But sometimes that wealth of choices can be overwhelming, especially when you're new to the gardening world. To help make things easier, High Mowing Organic Seeds has put together four collections of their organic seeds.
If you're just starting to cultivate your green thumb, then the Garden Starter Collection may be just what you need. Included are ten different varieties of vegetables, herbs -- even an edible flower! -- that can be sown directly in the garden or containers to keep you enjoying fresh produce all season long.
Herbs fresh from the garden open up new culinary possibilities. The Kitchen Herb Collection lets you plant an easy-to-grow assortment of dill, parsley, basil, cilantro and thyme. No garden space? Grow these herbs in containers on a porch, deck, or balcony.
Heirloom vegetable varieties are prized for their diversity and delicious flavors. The Heirloom Vegetable Lovers Collection lets you sample vintage varieties of beets, radishes, kale, peas, summer squash, lettuce, cucumbers, chard, carrots and tomatoes, and discover why so many gardeners have become passionate about saving these old varieties.
And if Michelle Obama's gardening enthusiasm has you fired up to grow your own in a big way, the White House Garden collection provides 18 kinds of vegetables and herbs for a bountiful harvest.
