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).
B: Rainbow carrots
Black cherry Tomato
Glaser Wheel Hoe
Soil Block Makers
Many different Seeders
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.
D: Perfect Organization.
Winner of the Greens Award - There are pages and pages of greens/lettuces - wonderful!
That makes a grand total of 8
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!ReplyDelete
So sorry about that - think of my garden as your digital garden - you can enjoy it through modern technology.ReplyDelete
Happy belated b day!!! Wish you the best :)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! I'm going to pass this along to some members of my family - I know they'll find it useful!ReplyDelete
