1. Gardener’s Supply

It was founded in 1983 and is based in Vermont. Since then, it has grown to serve millions of new customers and sells everything from seeds, garden furniture, decor, cloches and greenhouses.
But this is not just a retail store. Gardener’s Supply also offers advice and help from a network of gardeners. They also run a blog which has great ideas that can inspire you in your garden. A team of experts is also on hand via email for quick answers to your dilemmas.
This company is also employee-owned and donates eight per cent of the pre-tax profits to schemes that use gardening to improve people’s lives and the environment as a whole.
It supports American Community Gardening Association, the Green Education Foundation, and Plant a Row for the Hungry.
And it is also working to reduce the carbon footprint of the company so if you’re a keen gardener you can buy from this large store without worrying about the impact it has on the environment.
One of the first things you’ll notice when you visit Aerogarden.com is the Deal of the Day. The site is eye catching right off the bat, and it engages you in things you might not have even realized that you’re interested in. Rather than offering just standard gardening materials, you’ll find seed kits and grow lights, products that make your job as a grower easier, especially if you want to have your garden indoors.
If you’ve never worked with seed kits or some of the other specialized equipment and products at Aerogarden.com, you can still benefit from their informational site tools, including user guides, tips on growing with seed kits and accessories, maintenance schedules, specialty information on indoor gardening, general FAQ categories, and more. There are even articles about going green and how the products can help you reduce carbon footprint.
You can join the Grow Club, if you want, and learn more, getting insider information and certain products based on your membership. Best of all, the site offers international distributors so you can order anywhere in the world.
3. 123 Stores
You may have heard of 123Greetings.com, one of the largest online greeting card markets in the world. 123Stores.com is the e-commerce division of the same, and they have an entire line up of excellent gardening tools and materials, all quality brands at prices that are hard to beat.
In addition to low overhead that keeps prices low for this online giant, 123Stores.com offers free shipping in the continental US. The online paying system is secure, using Verisign, which is a top provider of ecommerce security and SSL encryption.
They have an option to call a toll free number if you have problems with the website, but with the high level of maintenance needed to keep a site with over 100,000 products updated, you won’t likely run into any issues of that sort.
Find products from gloves to weed eaters to decorative products for your garden at 123Stores.com, all at great prices. The vast selection offers a great way to find your own personal style.
Does it surprise you to see Amazon on this list? After all, Amazon has a way of getting into every industry at some point. While many see it as a popular place to find movies, books, music, and perhaps toys and games, Amazon also has incredible deals on gardening and home décor, seeds, bulbs, and other related items. You’ll find a plethora of outdoor seating and furnishings, and you have the option of comparing items here as well.
One of the best things about Amazon for gardening materials is that you have choices of purchasing directly from Amazon, but you also get a lot of smaller vendors who don’t have their own online space and use Amazon to sell their items. This allows them to spend more on the quality of their products while maintaining a lower overhead.
It gets better – with the option of Amazon Prime, you can take advantage of free two-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items. Also, the online ‘department store’ allows you to learn from other buyers, doubling as a review and comment space. If you see an item and want to know something about it that you can’t find in the description or reviews, ask it, and Amazon sends the question to previous buyers, asking them to respond for you! Plus, every item sold by Amazon is backed by the giant retail/discount space.
This is a great website for cheap, basic gardening supplies and tools. It offers everything from whole greenhouses to a set of watering globes.
On Overstock, you can usually find something for every task in the garden and that suits every budget. From an entire raised flowerbed to a stool with pockets to fit your tools in, this website can give every gardener something they need – or something you never knew you needed!
Once again, you can shop by price which is handy if you’re on a budget and the gardening supplies are grouped into sections to make it easy to navigate. These include “ponds and pond supplies”, “watering” and “pest control”.
Each product has a detailed description as well as Amazon-style star ratings and customer reviews. This website also links out to gardening tips and advice which can help you if you have a specific problem as well as give you inspiration for any changes in your backyard.
Now this might sound like a fitness website, but it is actually an online gardening store offering seeds plants and accessories. They group their products by flowers, vegetables, herbs etc. which makes it easy to find what you want and there is also a great feature which shows you the most popular products in a particular category. This shows you what other gardeners are buying and also what is likely to be in season or ready to plant at particular times of the year.
The company has been trading for more than 100 years and offers seeds and plants for all different climates and all seasons. As well as seeds and plants there are also pots, seed trays and other accessories which can help you get your seeds blossoming into flowers or crops.
Burpee.com also lists press cuttings and media coverage as well as giving an insight into the history of the company. There is still a catalogue produced but in order to come into the 21st century the full catalogue is now online.
There is also a brilliant resource which has lots of “how to” videos on a wide range of subjects. This is everything from recipes to explaining the basics of great gardening soil. As well as the website, Burpee also has an app.
7. Plow and Hearth
This well-established online gardening store offers homewares as well as gardening supplies. Since it launched in 1980, the range of products on sale has expanded and videos have now been added to product descriptions to give more details.
Plow and Hearth started with one store in Madison, Virginia, and now has 26 stores across the country as well as a catalogue and web store. The products are grouped into “collections” so you can buy a selection of goods which match products and also show top rated or best-selling collections.
Instead of flowers, plants, herbs and fruits, this online store is far more focused on decor and accessories for your backyard.
There is also a range of products for bringing wildlife into your garden from bird seed to different wildlife housing.
There is also a range of garden wear to make sure you are protected in the garden and your clothes are kept clean. Wellington boots and other waterproof, protective shoes are also available.
Plow and Hearth also has Problem Solvers which provides practical solutions for everyday living and the Wind and Weather brand offers home and garden decor. Plow & Hearth also helps the community and supports the Madison Council for the Arts by contributing time, talent and funding to Music on the Lawn, a series of free outdoor concerts providing entertainment and enjoyment to the citizens of Madison and surrounding communities during the summer months.
8. Plant Express
When you visit the PlantExpress.com website, you’ll find so much information you might get overwhelmed with new ideas. They have an entire section of landscaping ideas, as well as videos that offer you how-tos and ideas for your gardening. Consider, too, that you can order entire plant packages, pre assembled so that you don’t have to design your garden from top to bottom, and you have a recipe for an excellent gardening resource.
PlantExpress.com, based in California, is a premier provider of trees and plants of more than 2400 varieties. There are five different package themes you can order, professionally designed, with dozens of quality plants and trees in each package.

They also have contact information – an email address and phone number – in case you don’t find what you’re looking for.
9. Park Seed
As you can probably guess from the name, this online gardening store specializes in seeds and plants. This is one of the oldest and biggest seed sellers and plant companies in America. Park Seed has been serving customers since 1868, starting with a house to house salesman offering seeds to neighbours and now with an online presence boasting hundreds of varieties of seeds and plants.
The company also has a 500 acre site in Greenwood and sells from there as well as online.
This website has a really good listing system which divides the plants and seeds on offer carefully. The top navigation bar lists “vegetables”, “flowers”, “seed starting”, “perennials”, “herbs” and “fruits” and then as you click on each section it gives you a list of what is on offer by name. This is really handy as it allows you to browse but it also makes it quick and simple to find a specific plant if you want something in particular.
While this specialises in seeds, the website also offers associated bits and pieces so you can get what you need in one place. There are biodegradable pots to make planting your seeds easier, propagating systems and planters.
10. Greenhouse Megastore
This is a specialist store which gives gardeners a wide range of greenhouses for both commercial and home use. For the last 22 years, this company has been building greenhouses across the world and in 2001 the online store was launched to give gardeners insight into the structures. If you’re looking for a greenhouse, from a small seed starter to a huge system to grow several different crops, this is the best place to come. It has lots of variety and offers 100% customer satisfaction.
The Greenhouse Megastore offers a price-beating guarantee which says it will beat any competitor’s price by 2% if a customer finds it lower elsewhere. They also have an aftercare service which supports customers after they have bought a greenhouse and can offer a one year unconditional guarantee.
Greenhouses can be bought as an entire unit or you can “design your own” by choosing a frame, covering material and any accessories. But it is not just greenhouses, the website can also offer pest control solutions, plants and pots as well as soil.
The website offers technical FAQ to support gardeners with the greenhouses and there is also an email newsletter so you can find out about new offers and tips for your backyard.
If you want to give your friends and family some help with gifts, you can also set up a wishlist on this website to put together products you want for your garden.
11. Garden Centre Online
For our European readers… this shop offers a wide range of fruits, vegetables and flowers for home delivery. There is a section for featured products which are the ones that can be planted in the current season as well as what has been selling well online.
A news section, although last updated in 2016, offers information on plants month by month as well as tips to protect plants and boost growth. Garden Centre Online is a fairly new website having only been established in 2005. There are more than 1,000 products on sale from hoses to fruit trees and garden sheds. The website has a policy of sending 98% of the products the same day they are purchased.
As well as plants and seeds, Garden Centre Online offers decor, protective clothing and even gift vouchers so you can give backyard improvements and accessories as presents.
There is also a section for pets and birds which sells bird houses as well as dog collars and leads so you can pick up a present for your pet as well as improvements for your garden all in one place.
12. Monster Gardens
This is an online store which specialises in hydroponic supplies. The website has everything you need to set up your own growing system from lighting, additives, fans, filters, meters and testers.
You can buy supplies separately and set them up how you like them in your own configuration but Monster Gardens also sells packages which groups together everything you need to create certain systems. For example, the LED growing system includes a tent, light hangers, a fan, carbon filters and ducting.
Based in California, Monster Gardens has one of the largest inventories of hydroponic supplies and there is something for any budget. Staff have 30 years experience in the industry and can give expert advice to novices or anyone looking to expand their hydroponic knowledge.
There’s a YouTube channel where staff have produced videos on everything from the basics of setting up hydroponics to nutrient mixing.
Commercial businesses can get discounted rates and Monster Gardens can ship worldwide. They can provide recommendations for your growing setup if you give measurements and details. These design suggestions can go up to 1,500 lamp fixtures.
13. JFH Horticultural Supplies Ltd
Since it was established 40 years ago, JFH Horticultural Supplies gives you everything you need for your garden. It specialises in helping businesses but it can also supply products to the keen home gardener. The family-owned and run business has a team of employees which are dedicated to helping horticulturalists find what they need for their backyards. They have nine members of the same family working for the business and says customers are treated as members of the extended family.
This company sells a basic range of everything you need for the garden including tools, clothes and accessories. This website doesn’t have a specialism as such but has a wide range of products for your backyard.
14. Gurney’s Seed and Nursery Co.
This website gives gardeners a wide range of plants and seeds to choose from.
Although the online store is a relatively modern addition, this business has been running for more than 130 years. Based in Greendale, IN, the business specialises in trees, shrubs, plants, fruit trees and berries as well as gardening supplies. This is definitely the place to shop if you’re looking for a wide range of plants and trees.
The first catalogue was published in 1910 and business has been booming ever since. It is one of the leading seed and nursery companies in the USA and has exclusive items only available through Gurneys. The special items include Gurney’s Gotta Have It Sweet Corn, Gurney’s Perfect Pickle Hybrid Cucumber, Gurney’s Pride Improved Hybrid Zucchini and Gurney Girl’s Best Hybrid Tomato
This website is great for seasonal produce and plants as all the products are carefully packaged and shipped to arrive at the proper planting time for your area of the country.
There is also a section which shows products new in 2017 as well as “web exclusives” which are Gurneys products which are only available online. Everything is broken down into sections so you can easily shop for fruits, trees or other plant categories.
15. Plant America Nursery
All plants sold through Plant America are certified by the US Department of Agriculture which means they can be sent all over the USA and to 13 countries around the world. The 3,400-acre farm itself is in Tennessee and has been supplying plants for people’s backyards for 58 years.
The family-owned and operated business can offer flowers for small gardens right up to wholesale plants and trees.
There are more than 900 varieties of plants and products from Plant America have gone to the Washington Monument, The Arlington National Cemetery and The Battery Conservancy.
Plants from this company are also donated to universities for research. As well as the standard categories, Plant America also groups plants into things gardeners might like. For example, there are sections for fast growing plants and privacy trees. This way, even if you’re not sure what plants you need specifically you can shop by what you need your plant to do. This website has a great gallery feature which shows high resolution images of trees and plants so you can see them at their best before you buy them.
16. Wayside Gardens
This website has tonnes of categories so you can find plants easily if you know what you are looking for as well as get inspiration for your garden based on different types. You can shop for heat tolerant plants if you live in a hot climate, or choose a plant by soil type if you know the soil in your backyard is difficult to plant in.
Established in 1920, this mail-order business has become known for the quality of the plants, seeds and bulbs it sells as well as the wide variety. It is based in South Carolina and provides unusual varieties. While the company does sell accessories, this business specialises in the flora and fauna themselves. They sell themselves as for the “serious garden enthusiast” and have a catalogue full of container and bare root plants. What accessories Wayside Gardens do sell however, are often exclusive to them so you can rest assured you will get something unique for your backyard.
17. Home Depot
Who doesn’t love this big box corporate brand for hardware, do it yourself projects, and all things remodelling? Appliances are high quality, and the customer service is phenomenal. Best of all, their garden store offerings are out of this world! And you can get the same quality and even greater variety online.
Home Depot offers an extensive website with information on every available seed, bulb, planter, tool, and soil they carry, just to name a few items. They have experts online you can ‘chat’ with when you have questions, so for those of you who feel that you need a helping hand, you still get the same hands-on assistance you would in person, at the store.
Aside from online products, you get the added benefit of blogs and articles that can help you learn more about the gardening project you want to take on, as well as general tips to improve your outdoor space. And because the chain retailer also has furniture for your garden, you can bet on finding everything you want in one place. Put items on a comparison list to look at specs side by side, including price, so you can make an informed decision. While there are some instances that an independent dealer would be preferable, when it comes to shopping online, you’ll find that a corporate chain store has an incredible edge and you could definitely save money on plants.
While Home Depot had the hardware business on lock for years, Lowes came on the scene and gave them a run for their money with ‘wider aisles’ and a large selection that rivalled the other giant. But when it came to the digital world, Lowes took that area first, and they have just as many products to offer in terms of home – and professional – gardening equipment, as well as flowers, plants, seeds, bulbs, and furniture.
Lowes also has a reputation for their online customer service, and they seem to have very in depth product descriptions, which helps consumers better understand how something works or how to choose the right product for your personal project. In addition, the warranty on all items is detailed in its description, and you’ll find that there are often extended warranties available for purchase for products you buy online. Shipping on most items is free, unless you are spending a very small amount, and that is definitely something to look forward to!
If you need further attestation to the quality of products sold at the corporate giant, consider that Lowes sponsors many of the shows on HGTV and other networks with do-it-yourself project shows and gardening information. If it’s touted by reputable sources, including some of the best-known gardeners and gardening experts, you can probably trust it as an excellent resource.
If you haven’t heard of this site before, now is the time to take a look. Garden.com is owned by TabCom, LLC, founded in 1969. You may not have heard of that company, either, but you probably know some of their other ventures, including 1800PetSupplies.com. As is the case with this and their other pet related websites, you’ll find some of the best prices around from Garden.com.
The site is also filled with information relevant to gardening and other outdoor living topics. With the careful balance provided on the site of variety and savings you can find at a large chain retailer with the personal attention and atmosphere of a smaller, independent nursery, Garden.com has provided a space that suits everyone. You can take time to peruse the articles and tips provided on a number of topics when you’re getting ready to prepare your garden or want to find a way to fix a problem, and you can shop and browse uninterrupted, taking your time and thoroughly researching the products right there without having to go to another site.
If you join the email newsletter, you can get even more exclusive discounts, and you’ll be alerted in advance about new products, special events, and sales. It’s easy to reach their customer service as well, in case you are uncertain of something on the site or have a question about shipping or processes.
20. Great Garden Supply
GreatGardenSupply.com is backed by a brick and mortar operation that’s been around for more than three decades. Having that kind of longevity to the business is reason enough to consider shopping with them online. But in addition, they offer a pretty handy way to make sure they back their products 100% with a satisfaction guarantee, offering a phone number and an email address for contact should you have an issue with something you’ve purchased.
Of course, you aren’t likely to find a problem, unless something is damaged when it arrives, because GreatGardenSupply.com has only the highest quality products to offer. While this may add up to a slightly higher cost of products on their site, it’s worth it for the guarantee they offer.
Perhaps what makes the site truly unique is that, while they focus on gardening, there are several important aspects to the site that go together to create a top-notch resource for your entire outdoor space. They are also a resource for materials, products, and information related to lawn care, hydroponics, tree care, furniture, kitchen supplies, and more. But the bread and butter of the business is gardening, as evidenced by the ultimate gardening guide they offer.
21. Shop Terrain
Gardeners aren’t always looking for new seeds or planting ideas, and that’s what makes ShopTerrain.com a great resource. While you can definitely benefit from time spent perusing the information on gardening and the materials related to the subject, the site also focuses on many other aspects of the home and daily living.
For example, you’ll find solutions to questions you forgot to ask, such as how to save money on patio furniture or find furniture that can double for indoor and outdoor use. They have an extensive sale page, and the sales change frequently with the season and often for the purpose of the holidays. You don’t have to dig through the site to look at new arrivals, either, with the category for anything new listed right in the menu on their home page.
When it’s time to shop for that gardener or lawn care fanatic in your life, you can browse through the gifts section of the site. You’ll find some interesting ideas that might spark your creativity for your own purposes or for that loved one.
Best of all, the ordering process is easy. You have an account of your own with all your shipping and billing information at the ready, can add items to your cart and browse back through them to compare and make choices prior to purchase.
22. Bluestone Perennials
Part of the appeal of BluestonePerennials.com is the organization of the site. It starts with the main menu on the homepage, dividing perennials, shrubs, and bulbs into separate categories. There is also an alphabetical listing for plants, as well as a plant finder option that can help you decide which plants will grow best in your garden and yard environments.
The original Bluestone Perennials store was founded in 1972 in Lake Erie, Ohio, and it is still a family owned and operated establishment, meaning that the endeavours are labours of love and pride. Such personal investment means that you get the best quality products that come from careful handling and preparation, now handled in five acres of greenhouses.
Using plastic cell packs and soilless potting mediums, Richard Boonstra, his wife, and their two teenage children invested in the dream, and the business has grown exponentially. In just three years, they were able to grow it to a full-time operation and purchase a 47 acre farm before growing further 15 years later.
Today, BluestonePerennials.com is a green company, using 100% plantable biodegradable pots, as well as recyclable packaging, with no plastic in use at all. If nothing else, that’s reason enough to support this family venture!
23. Forest Farm
ForestFarm.com started as a dream for hiking couple Ray and Peg Prag, on their honeymoon in 1971. Three years later, they had made that dream a reality, starting with scavenged #10 cans and a few native species. They grew into a business offering over 5000 species of plants, and in 1998, they founded Pacifica, a reserve of botanicals in southwest Oregon that dedicates 540 acres to education about nature and enhanced appreciation of the environment.
Today, ForestFarm is a non-profit nursery, and proceeds from sales go toward the art and nature programs as well as the care and planting that takes place at Pacifica. Supporting the staff of 15 gardeners and the cause is one great reason to consider purchasing from this incredible gardening site.
The broad variety of plants, vegetables, flowers, and trees provided by the site are another incentive, and you can use the plant finder option to determine what you should order to meet your particular needs environmentally and based on your taste. You can find specials from time to time, and you should feel encouraged to keep up with the site blog, offering everything from reflection on successes in growing certain items to tips for your garden to information about various species of plant.
24. Garden Crossings
GardenCrossings.com offers a spectrum of growing things and information to be learned about all of them. It’s a family business, too, which means it’s developed with love, care, and passion. Started in 2002, the website offered a small variety of about 100 different plants. In two years, the family had built enough business to move to a larger facility, open a local garden center, and become the cultivators of over 1150 different species.
Their goal is to continue widening their array of offerings to new and different plants, making sure that they are all robust and healthy. You can expect the owners as well as their employees to assist you in selecting the right plants for your gardening conditions. They also have a Container Designer Tool, which can help you architecturally design seasonal displays, hanging planters, and more.
The site avoids any confusion as you shop, offering categories readymade for your interests, including annuals, perennials, shrubs, edibles, and the container creation tool as well as a separate space for gardening tools and products. There is an entire learning center to search, and you can explore information about the local store in Zeeland, Michigan as well.
25. High Country Gardens
High Country Gardens started as a way to offer an alternative to the typical rock scapes and cactus planting that dominated the western gardening style. David Salman recognized that the growing conditions didn’t allow for normal lush foliage to grow easily, so he started cultivating those plants that would otherwise be too difficult to handle in the dry, hot climate – blooming perennials, ornamental grasses, etc – to be tolerant and eco-friendly for this sort of habitat.
That was in 1984. When the business ‘bloomed’ and people began driving to Santa Fe from other states, he started the mail order division of the company, which thrived due to the lesser need for water and, therefore, more budget friendly growing capabilities.
The website is an incredible resource for learning to grow with less water and still have a lush yard and garden. You’ll find information on and products for gardening, including perennials, bulbs, and wildflower seeds. There is also an area dedicated to lawn care and lawn products. Gardening tools have their own pages for perusal, and you can even order a preplanned garden to start you off on the right food, especially if you’re new to growing. They hold contests with excellent prizes, gift cards that make excellent presents, and sales with great savings.
26. Song Sparrow
Have you heard of Emma Klehm and Charlie’s White peonies? Those are a part of the heritage that belongs to SongSparrow.com. the Klehm family originally immigrated from Germany to Illinois in 1852, and John Adam Klehm started a nursery specializing mainly in fruit trees. The family followed his legacy, and his son, Charles, developed a love of flowers and especially peonies.
In 1943, Charles and his own son, Carl, entered into a partnership together, which passed down to Carl’s son, Roy, remaining in business until 2004. Roy introduced woody and herbaceous plants to the business, as well as some of the best shade trees around. Today, the Song Sparrow Farm in Wisconsin, run by Roy and his family, continues the family’s legacy in horticulture.
Aside from general gardening information and the mail order options for garden products, you can also expect grand advice and general discussions on gardening from the SongSparrow.com site. Purchase a gift certificate for a friend who loves and thrives on gardening, and join the email newsletter for special information, including knowledge of upcoming sales and events.
Best of all, peruse the books on gardening available from the store, and order some of the best gardening tools in the industry. The long, rich history and culture add depth to the knowledge held by this particular business, and it shines through in every aspect of the website.
27. Brent and Becky’s Bulbs
Another long running family business, Brent and Becky’s Bulbs began with Brent’s grandfather, back in 1900. Apparently, the man fell in love with the daffodil and moved to the Gloucester, Virginia area because of it. Today, the nursery that has grown out of such love offers a great deal more, including bulbs, seeds, perennials, plants, supplements, books, and gifts.
The 28-acre farm is in Gloucester, and the family members who run the business are also photographers, garden writers, consultants, educators, and lecturers. They are in the process of developing over eight acres of educational gardens that are Chesapeake Bay friendly and creating an educational foundation for school groups and the general public.
Bulb gardens are the specialty for BrentandBeckysBulbs.com, but they are excellent at assisting in purchasing complementary seeds and perennials for your bulb garden. They have separated their website into spring planting and fall planting to help you choose the right seeds and materials for the right time of year, and you can find discounts available on certain products at various times of the year. The site is regularly updated, and ordering is easy, making the site user friendly as well as enjoyable and informative.
28. Easy to Grow Bulbs
It seems that many of the best gardening shops, even online, are borne of a passion held by an entire family. EasyToGrowBulbs.com is another family owned and operated establishment, though the way it performs its mission is quite different from some of the other resources here. Rather than growing everything on their own, the family has dedicated their time and resources to seeking out the absolute best bulbs and plants throughout the world, whether typical plants or things most people have never seen.
The company began in 2004 with a small warehouse in Oceanside, California, and a dream to unite aspiring gardeners and growers with the best from suppliers around the world. With international resources in Israel, Holland, South Africa, and more, you can expect everything sourced by EasyToGrowBulbs.com to be of the highest quality, robust and healthy.
They offer more than bulbs, including potted plants, perennials, and succulents. Find incredible gifts ready for delivery, ideas for other presents that will please the avid gardener, and plenty of information on growing and cultivating your own garden.
29. Cult Hydro
As the name suggests, this is an online gardening shop that specialises in hydroponic equipment. Hydroponics is the process of growing plants in an artificial way and without the normal nutrients, you would find when growing in the soil. The plants are given nutrients through the water instead as they are added in manually.
This online hydro gardening store offers a wide range of equipment to create your own setup which includes lights, rigging and growing mediums.
The company says it has in-depth knowledge of how to use hydroponics to grow crops as all staff working for this retailer have a minimum of 10 years growing experience. Cult Hydro says it offers products at lower prices than many other online hydro gardening stores.
This store offers branded products including nutrients and growing mediums. As well as the food and nutrients needed for plants, you can also buy supplies like a fan and tents to create your set up.
For a hydroponics novice, this website offers everything you need to get up and running with good advice on each product explaining what it does and how it will fit into your system. There is also the ability to shop by price so if you are just starting out and want to try hydroponics without spending a lot of money you can shop on the budget end of the spectrum for some basic supplies.
30. Fisher Blacksmithing
Based in the USA, this online store offers hardwearing and reliable gardening tools.
Fisher Blacksmithing specialises in making hand forged, high quality tools. The metal is set into walnut wood handles which gives it durability. This is marketed more at the gift and high end markets as these tools are for a more discerning gardener.
There is also the option to buy over the phone – not just online. The price of these tools is higher than mass-produced items but the craftsmanship means they should stay working and looking beautiful for many years to come.
