Seeds of Change
Most parts of the United States won't see the last frost of winter until late April or early May. If you're thinking of gardening this summer, though, you might want to get started soon, since many types of seedling prefer to be pampered indoors for six weeks or more before being transplanted to the great outdoors. Seeds of Change has been a convenient natural gardening supplier for some time, offering a wide variety of both popular and unusual organic heirloom seeds (for example, moon and stars watermelon, Czechoslovakian black chili pepper, and royal burgundy bush beans). They also carry a variety of other interesting natural garden products, from seed potatoes and apple trees to packages of live worms and beneficial insects. Not sure where to start? Check out the introductory gardener's package ($110), which includes a digging fork and hoe, two types of organic fertilizer, and ten popular seed packets.
