By DonShirer on Feb 25, 2015 5:30 PM, concerning 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden:

When I was a relative newomer to gardening in my retirement, this book opened my eyes to the wonderfully varied heirloom tomatoes hardly mentioned in most commercial catalogs. Dr. Male's enthusiasm and expertise come through in every chapter and she provides just enough detail on growing seedlings to ensure success without becoming boring. The best part of the book is the guide to 100 selected varieties, of many different shapes, sizes and habits. There are also chapters on tomato origins, selecting and growing varieties, saving seeds, and creating your own heirlooms.

By DonShirer on Feb 25, 2015 4:43 PM, concerning Epic Tomatoes:

EPIC TOMATOES or How To Select & Grow the Best Varieties of All Time,
by a recognized expert responsible for several of the most popular open-pollinated tomato varieties, is the most complete volume on tomatoes I have read. Lavishly illustrated, it starts with the origins and anatomy of the tomato, moves on to Planning, Planting, Growing and Harvesting, and includes chapters on Saving Seeds, Breeding your own varieties, and Troubleshooting pests and diseases. His answers to many of the usual questions about tomato growing shoot down many myths, and his listing of resources includes a table of 250 recommended varieties. Highly recommended. Also in paperback or eBook.
Along with Carolyn Male's book on Heirloom Tomatoes, this will become a staple of my garden library.

By Seedfork on Feb 25, 2015 4:08 PM, concerning The Complete Compost Gardening Guide:

This is the best book I have read on composting. It should answer just about any question on the subject. I found the book to be easy to read, it has great illustrations, beautiful photos, and is organized very well. If you are interested in composting I recommend this book.

By Toni on Feb 21, 2015 10:58 AM, concerning Terroir Seeds ~ Underwood Gardens:

I have ordered from Terroir Seeds a few times over the years and have been very happy with the results. I find great value in their newsletter with all of their tips, how to's and wonderful recipes. I have also listened to wonderful advice from Steve on a few different podcasts. I highly recommend Terroir Seeds.

By jmorth on Feb 19, 2015 3:08 AM, concerning Victory Seed Company:

Swift service, well packaged.

I have purchased markers from them for at least 25 years and they still look good. Great quality! And Made in the USA!

By Ecscuba on Feb 16, 2015 9:44 AM, concerning Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co.:

I'm a newbie gardener. I've kept a little diary this winter and every Baker Creek seed I've planted in the greenhouse has sprouted quickly and done great. The other brands I've bought from the big box store haven't done well at all. I am sold on their quality. I love their business philosophy. Looking forward to receiving figs, mulberry and a lot of other new and unique seeds.

By Daniel on Feb 16, 2015 4:47 AM, concerning Cool Roses:

This company mainly sells roses grafted on Fortuniana root stock. For Floridians, that's a good thing. They sell roses mostly in 1 and 2 gallon pots. They have a nice selection, but you really have to call to get the latest information on selection and availability. The personal service I received was incredible. The roses they delivered were huge and very well established (I ordered 3 gallon pots). I ordered a lot of plants and was fortunate to live close and be able to negotiate a personal delivery. The owner, Geoff Coolidge, is a wealth of information and very anxious to share it. This is a company that is committed to supplying A-plus plants with excellent customer service.

By bxncbx on Feb 13, 2015 10:13 AM, concerning Seedman.com:

I recently placed an order on the website. The seeds arrived yesterday and I am very pleased with how quickly they were shipped! Prices are reasonable and seed amounts were generous for what I ordered.

By Pattyw5 on Feb 13, 2015 9:19 AM, concerning Paw Paw Everlast Label Company:

Very good American-based company. Good prices for your plant labeling needs. Great communication and free shipping in the United States. Happy with the plant markers I've ordered. Highly recommended. A+
