I was a regular customer of Jardin du Gourmet for several years when I lived in another state. I found your webpage when I did an internet search looking for them so I could get a new catalog. Apparently the ones I should have gotten from them this winter didn't get forwarded from my old address. I like them because the have a marvelously wide variety of different, unusual seeds in small packages. I have always had small garden plots and a regular sized seed package always means wasted seed for me. The last 2 years I've also ordered their live herb plants and had very good results. Out of about 2 dozen plants I had only one casualty. Again, the nice variety is the key draw for me.
I don't remember how I first started receiving this catalogue which sells seeds, plants, onion and garlic bulbs, and books but what I like the most about it is you can order small packs of seeds like cinnamon basil or chocolate peppers in trial packs for 30 cents! Herb and flower plants are also reasonable. I have liked everything so far and have only lost one plant but that was my fault. I like the smaller seed quantities because - for example - what would I do with over 100 basil plants? Sometimes you only need a few seeds and don't want to store the leftovers.
