Seed Catalogs - 6th Review

You know you're a "Garden Nerd" schedule your vacation around your garden.

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 - 6th Review (John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds)

A:  This is very specific to the title - obviously all about culinary herbs and vegetables.  Although there are a few ornamental flowers which I assume are for center pieces
1 point
B:  Golden India Edible Pea Pod
      Dandelion Greens
      Green Zebra Tomatoes
      Black Pineapple Heirloom Tomatoes
      Brown Mustard Seed
     2 points

C:  The cover of this catalog is very nice - however the inside is pure business.  Nothing special or unique about the interior.
1 point

D: It flows fairly well - each category is alphabetized.
1.5 points

That makes a grand total of 5.5


  1. Hi Angie! So nice to hear from you. I had already planned to visit your blog and connect as soon as I got caught up. I'll be back!

  2. I sure do envy people who have a successful garden! I kill everything! Thank God my husband is good at that stuff.

  3. thanks for taking the time to review. I'm looking forward to learning your results! Thanks for following and I'm following you back. I was going to reply to your e-mail but you came up as a no reply blogger!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


    1. Thanks Marilyn! - I think I just fixed the "no reply" problem (I hope anyway).

  4. It is that time of year again. I am going to try to do some planting. Hopefully I will.


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.
