Somehow by ordering a few seed packets last year I have ended up on the most shared plant mailing list the world has ever known. And I kinda like it. Not much gardening to do anyways; it's a great time to plan for spring.

Gardener's Supply Company catalog came in last week - and here are three picks that can all be found on their website...

Terracycle plant food: (Above) Made from millions of worms on a healthy diet. And the mixture is bottled in recycled soda bottles (see how the bottle outlines are different - cool!). If you visit the Terracycle website directly you can also read about their recycle drives to collect bottles.

Seedstarting system:Designed to grow deep roots, giving the plants a better chance after transplanting. You could also grow seedlings to give to friends when spring arrives. The cover is made of thick plastic with vents, and the entire unit can be put through the dishwasher.

Organic Pharm: These disease and pest fighting sprays are made with essential oils and are safe choice for anyone with pets and children. I would much rather spray one of these within the confines of the apartment.

The catalogs keep rolling in, stay tuned for more.
