Garden Planning For 2017: All America Selections

One way to find good seeds for your garden is to check the AAS (All America Selections) list.  Gardeners throughout the country test seed varieties in their gardens and report results.  This testing means that the seed varieties chosen have grown very well in all climates and conditions.  You know they will do well in your area and in your garden.

For each winner, there is a picture, a summary of the growing experiences of gardeners overall, details of plant growth and habit, and growing tips.   

Mission Statement

“To promote new garden varieties with superior garden performance judged in impartial trials in North America.”


To test new, unsold cultivars
To inform gardeners about the AAS Winners
To earn gardeners’ trust in the AAS Winners

Here's a list of winners from 1933 to 2012.   Not all varieties may be available, but it does give you a checklist to start out with.
