Seeds from catalogs vs. Home and Garden Centers & Home Depot

Asked February 12, 2018, 10:27 AM EST

I have received quite a few seed catalogs in the last month and I'm wondering - besides the larger selection, what is the difference between the seeds I could buy from the catalog and the seeds I could by at Home & Garden Centers like Homestead Gardens?

Catalogs can offer more choices, unusual varieties, and also gardening supplies that you may not find in local stores. However, Seed from any reputable seed company will be good quality as it is tested for germination rates and is packed fresh for the current year.
