Seed, Root Stock & Mushroom Sources

by Catherine Haug

Edmund forwarded an extensive list of online seed sources and gardening books, originally from John Weber of Rising Rock Orchard in Northern Minnesota. I added these sources to our Gardening Files and Links page, under the following headings:

  • General Gardening (books),
  • Irrigation (links),
  • Pest Control (books), and
  • Seed, Root Stock & Mushroom Sources (links).

Also added to our Home & Ranch Files and Links page, under the heading:

  • Food Preservation (books)

    Most of these sources are from out-of-state.

    Below are the links that have been added to pages mentioned above; I’ll keep these links on this post for only a short time, but you will always be able to find them on the previously mentioned pages.

    NOTE: only NEW links are shown below; the actual pages may have additional links that have been there for awhile (especially seed sources).
