The Burpee Seed catalog is here!
Burpee Catalog is filled with tons of new items. The King of Color tomato collection is featured on the cover with four varieties each a different color and perfect for slicing. There is a "Green Envy" cherry tomato which is deep green. Most of the new items are hybrids. Brokali is a cross between borccoli and kale and there is a lovely exotic looking petunia called Phantom which has black petals with a yellow star on them.
Burpee has been in business for 135 years and is one of the oldest and most venerable of seed companies. It made itself famous during WWII promoting victory gardens and in 1954 offered $10,000 for a white marigold. This is the company that developed the Big Boy Tomato and has continued to supply seeds and plants, both perennial and annual as well as garden supplies.
Their catalog is a delight to look through. It has a huge flowers section listings from A to Z both perennials and annuals, a total of 40 pages. The sweet pepper collection is really vast, all sizes, colors and shapes--a joy to behold.
