New Varieties For 2006

 

Gardeners are looking for new plants every year. Here are new flowers and vegetables that will be featured in 2006 mail order seed catalogs, seed packets or as bedding plants at garden centers. The varieties are listed alphabetically by class, with the seed source listed in parentheses after the description. The designation "R" means a retail seed company from which gardeners may purchase seed directly by mail order or also in stores that carry the variety in seed packets. A "W" designation indicates a wholesale seed company which does not sell directly to home gardeners, but these varieties should be available in catalogs or as bedding plants at garden centers next spring. Information on seed companies may be found on the NGB website www.ngb.org by clicking on Membership Directory.
