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

The Garden Watchdog is a free directory of 7,849 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.
