Seed Catalogs - 2nd Review

You know you're a "Garden Nerd" bundle up in bed at night with a seed catalog in hand instead of a good book.

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 - 2nd Review (Jung Seeds and Plants)

A:  A good variety of flowers, veggies, fruit and tools.
2 points
B:  Light Yellow Raspberry - "Anne"
      Yellow Beet
      Yugoslavian Fingers Gourd
      Blood Shot Eyeball Pumpkin
1.5 points

C:  The catalog is a nice size - a little larger than normal.  Other than the size there is nothing visually appealing - I don't like the graphics or the cover layout.
0.5 points

D:  The organization is totally mixed up and confusing.  It's as if someone twirled around blind folded twenty times before organizing this catalog.
0 points

Winner of the Pumpkin Award - I've never seen such a variety of pumpkins in one catalog.

1 point

That makes a grand total of 5
