We rolled out several small fixes on January 29. If you encounter any problems, please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.

Guide to Gardening by Mail, Mail Order Gardening, and Catalogs

The Garden Watchdog is a free directory of 7,786 mail order gardening companies. Here gardeners share their opinions on which companies really deliver on quality, price and service.

After you review the Introduction and Acceptable Use Policy, you can share your own mail-order experiences, or use our search and browse features to find reputable sources for all your gardening needs.

Are you looking for a particular plant? Check out PlantScout to find vendors offering the plant, seed or bulbs you're seeking!

For local gardening resources, visit our new Go Gardening feature. If you're looking for a new book, the Garden Bookworm can help you add to your garden bookshelf.

Since 1994, 4,329 companies have been reviewed in the Garden Watchdog, and 78,841 comments have been posted (53,448 positive, 10,839 neutral, 14,554 negative) by 40,735 customers.

If you like this feature, we invite you to take a quick tour of Dave's Garden for more helpful garden tools and information.
