Trials for 2017

Updated May 22, 2017.

2017 CatalogWelcome!

Spring has arrived. It's time to start planting our gardens!

This year we are offering 51 trials that compare promising varieties of vegetables, herbs and cut flowers.

Over 200 families participate in our backyard trials every year. Everyone is welcome to participate! The trials are simple to conduct.

We've already exceeded our goal this spring, but WE HAVE LOTS OF SEEDS available! Check out our seed inventory for details. Everyone is encouraged to participate!

Seeds can be ordered online or via surface mail. We are shipping seeds daily and will continue through the first week of June. 

We have updated our list of recommended cultivars for North Dakota. This 2-page sheet includes a listing of seed companies that offer free seed catalogs.
