How to Request a Free Burpee Catalog

The cover of the Burpee 2020 catalog


Gardening company Burpee offers a free printed seed catalog, and its arrival in the mail signifies the beginning of spring to many gardeners. It's time to start planning this year's garden and figure out what seeds you want to buy this year. The company mails out its catalog in late December, and it's available through June of the following year or until supplies run out. The catalog is filled with seeds and already-grown plants for you to buy, including vegetables, flowers, perennials, herbs, and heirlooms. You'll also find fruit plants, organics options, seed starting supplies, and other gardening supplies all inside the catalog's pages.

The Burpee catalog makes it easy to find the seeds and plants that will grow best in your area, providing you with zone maps, shipping schedules, and growing calendars. Before you order, just put in your zip code, and you'll see the plants and seeds that will grow in your zone. There's even a Garden Time app to help you schedule all your gardening tasks.

If you like the Burpee catalog, you'll probably like these other seed catalogs from Territorial Seed Company, Gurney's, ​and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. They're all seed catalogs that have similar offerings to Burpee. They also all have both print and digital catalogs available.

How to Request a Free Burpee Catalog

Request a free catalog by visiting the Burpee website and using the form to fill out your name and mailing address; then click the ​"Subscribe" button. You also can sign up for the optional but free email newsletter. Subscription to the newsletter is not required to receive the catalog. Burpee would also love to hear about where you first learned about its catalog.

While Burpee doesn't indicate how long it will take you to receive the catalog, it usually arrives in your mailbox within two to six weeks, as long as it is already printed. Near the end of the growing season, the catalogs are usually out of stock, and you'll have to put your name on the waiting list for the next year's catalog. Burpee will mail this catalog to you as soon as it is printed.

While you wait for your catalog to arrive, check out Burpee's online ​how-to videos and ​expert advice to get a head start on growing a successful garden this year. Note that the Burpee seed catalog is only mailed out to those who live in the U.S.


When you're ready to place your order, navigate to Burpee's Seed Catalog Quick Shop. There, you can enter the product number from the catalog, select the quantity desired, and easily check out to have your items shipped to you. It makes shopping from the catalog super fast and easy.

Digital Burpee Catalog

Burpee offers a free digital version of its catalog to customers who prefer to flip through the pages online. Everything that you are looking for in the printed catalog will also be in the digital catalog. At your leisure, you can go through the pages of beautiful vegetables that could end up growing in your garden. The digital catalog provides a few neat features: There are clickable links for easy buying and share options for social media and email. You can even look back at the few previous years' catalog editions if you need to. If you want a paper copy of the catalog but don't want to wait for it to arrive in the mail, you can download and print a copy of the catalog yourself.
