West coast seeds was the first company that I bought and grew seeds from.
They have a fantastic free gardening guide. This gardening guide is also their seed catalog and it’s super informative. When I was a beginner gardener that guide was what helped me learn how to garden! It shows you what each vegetable, fruit or herb needs and problems with growing them. They also have a planting schedule (and more on their website for different regions). As an avid fall and winter gardener, one of my favorite aspects of the gardening guide is the snowflake symbol. This shows the varieties that have more cold tolerance.
It was ten years ago that I was a beginner gardener, and I still grow many WCS varieties every year. Over the years I now have some favorites that I grow each season, in addition to trying out new varieties each year.
Here are my favorite West Coast Seeds varieties
Ronde de Nice round zucchini
Easter Eggs II Radish Blend
Graffiti Purple Cauliflower
Fortex Pole Beans
Napoli Carrots for Cold Tolerance
