If you’re not familiar with armchair gardening, let us enlighten you! Truth be told, you’re probably an armchair gardener every year around this time, you just didn’t know what you were doing had an actual name.

When the weather turns cold, and there isn’t much you can do outdoors, many of us take to our seed catalogs to think about what we want to plant in the warmer months to come. This is called armchair gardening. Basically, you sit in your chair, and plan your garden from the comfort of your own home.

While you might not be doing a lot of work, it’s actually a pretty important step in regards to your overall yearly garden. Checking out your favorite seed magazines is a great way to see what suppliers have in stock. Many times you will find new and interesting plants that will compliment your garden.

Seed Savers is a great website, where you can request a free catalog, and you can find a selection of heirloom seeds. The 2016 catalog is completely new, so definitely check it out.  This website also has a great list of free seed catalogs.

Again, you may not feel like you’re doing much, but planning ahead is vital to growing a luscious and successful garden in the new year.

What is your favorite seed catalog?
