I have been looking through many seed catalogues try to decide what and if to buy seeds for this spring. I love to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables from seed. Usually I stary thousands of plants from seed and share them with friends and family. Unfortunately, this year I am so busy with work I'm not sure I will have time to garden. So do I or don't I? Anyway in honor of all of you who are looking through seed catalogues and dreaming of warmer times. Here are some images from a 1883 Peter Henderson Seed catalogue that I have scanned. I just love these drawings. You could even use them as digital stamps. Here is link to whole group of Peter Henderson seed catalogue covers. This is a link to the Smithsonian site with over 10,000 catalogue images. So make sure you explore the site. You will be in awe. I hope you enjoy. I know I copied dozens before deciding I could alway come back and copy more. I think I see a challenge in our future using all of these wonderful catalogue images.
As always feel free to use any of the images on my website in your artwork but please do not post or sell the original image on the web in a group or collection. If you use one in a project and post it to your site please link it back to here or leave a comment in the comments section of the image on this site so we can all enjoy. I love to see what you create. That is what inspires me to post and collect more vintage items.
