If you are interested in medicinal herbs this is THE place to look. Their seeds germinate reliably and their plants are generous and healthy! Though their catalogue is newsprint with no pictures, it contains a wealth of information including detailed descriptions of each plant, its medicinal uses and its cultural requirements. I've ordered from them 3 years in a row and have had nothing but outstanding results. They are FAR better than Canada's Richter's Herbs, whose shipping season is so late as to make it very difficult to succeed with their plants here in California. The only down side to Horizon is that their plant selection is so small, mostly just seeds. A friendly, excellent company.

"I want to personally thank Fireman7 (Fireman7, THANK YOU)for this constructive comment, which got me to thinking (in 1999) about growing plants for general distribution. We improved our greenhouses and built a state-of-the-art shadehouse, which allowed us to start many more plants and make them available to our gardening friends. Now, at the date of this writing (2005) we offer about 300 different species of plants for sale, and we will be adding many more, common and rare, on an ongoing basis. I still really encourage people to use the seeds instead of buying the heavier and more expensive plants, but the reality is some folks do not have the facilities for starting seeds and prefer to get plants.
