If you don’t currently receive gardening catalogues, now is the time to start. Most companies that put out quality catalogues are well-established and trustworthy. Plus, many catalogues offer full-color pictures of various plants so you can decide which types you really want. Catalogues also typically offer plenty of information about each plant’s growing habits, environmental requirements and estimated growth rate so you can make the most informed decision about the seeds you want to buy.

Online Gardening Stores 

When purchasing tropical seeds online, be careful to buy from an established, reputable company. Some individual sellers try to sell seeds on sites like eBay. Even though they may offer a great price, keep in mind that anyone can sell on eBay and you may not be buying from a reputable seller. For best results, purchase only from professional websites that can be cross-referenced for legitimacy. If possible, look up reviews for various websites to find out as much as you can about the quality of their seeds and service before you buy.

They may even have an indoor greenhouse area where they grow all sorts of tropical plants. The employees who care for the plants may be able to give you invaluable advice about how to take care of tropical seeds in a colder climate.
