Two Weeks Left to View Seed Stories

A selection of seed catalog posters are on exhibit from the Arboretum exhibit, "Seed Stories: Catalogs of Life and Gardens in America Exhibit."

Vintage-Seed-Catalog-Exhibit.pngSeed and nursery catalogs have long used beautiful images to entice customers. Dozens of selections from Andersen Horticultural Library's rich collection of 57,000 catalogs are a testament to their research value as well as their beauty. Stories of local characters, including three Minneapolis seedswomen, regional pioneers, and colonial innovators give a more intimate look at the life and gardens surrounding these publications.

View it now, as the exhibit will be taken down from the Magrath Library Extended Study Area in the Basement in early November!
