Seed Catalogs - 5th Review

If you have ever been caught talking to your plants.......then you might just be a "Garden Nerd".

Over the next few months I will be reviewing and grading some of the seed catalogs that I have received for 2012.

Here's how it works - There are 4 categories:
A:  Variety of seeds and plants
B: Unique Items - original items that I have not seen in any other catalog
C: Visual - cover and content - graphics
D: Organization - are the items easy to find? and does the overall catalog flow well?.

The grading system:

and an extra Bonus Point for excelling in 1 area

Each category will be graded using this system making "9" the perfect score (including the Bonus point).

Please feel free to participate - if you have ever ordered anything from any of these catalogs then please feel free to comment.....good or bad.  Afterall - I am giving these companies free advertisement.  ENJOY!

Seed Catalogs - 5th Review (Johnny's Selected Seeds)

A:  This catalog has a fantastic variety of everything (except fruit trees - they only have seeds - no plants - but I was still so impressed with the vast variety of seeds).
2 points
B:  Rainbow carrots     
     Greens Harvester
     Purple Okra
     Black cherry Tomato
     Glaser Wheel Hoe
     Soil Block Makers
     Many different Seeders
2 points

C:  The photos were clear but nothing creative or original.  The cover is nothing spectacular - I would not have picked up this catalog if I had seen it on a shelf with the other seed catalogs that have been reviewing on this blog.
1 point

D: Perfect Organization.
2 points

Winner of the Greens Award - There are pages and pages of greens/lettuces - wonderful!
1 point

That makes a grand total of 8


  1. Love reading your reviews - but seed catalogues make me depresssed! I always wanted everything, when I had a garden: now I don't have a garden, there's no point looking anymore!

  2. So sorry about that - think of my garden as your digital garden - you can enjoy it through modern technology.

  3. Hey there! Very cool blog, thanks so much for sharing it with me! :-) My husband and I finally have a very small patch of earth to call our own and we love to grow and preserve our own food. I'm looking forward to the coming planting season.

  4. What a great idea! I'm going to pass this along to some members of my family - I know they'll find it useful!


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
