Seed Catalogs - 7th Review

If you have ever waged a war against the Colorado Potato Beetle.......then you might just be a "Garden Nerd".

Over the past few months I have been reviewing and grading some of the seed catalogs that I have received for 2012.  This is the last review for this year.

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!
