Seed Catalogs - 4th Review

You know you're a "Garden Nerd" when.......strangers start commenting about your dirt stained hands and the atrocious condition of your finger nails.

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 or just want to state your opinion- then please feel free to comment.....good or bad.  Afterall - I am giving these catalogs free advertisement.  ENJOY!

Seed Catalogs - 4th Review (R.H. Shumway's)

A:  This catalog has a decent variety of seeds.
1.5 points
B:  Bean & Pea Sheller
     Mushroom growing kits
     Fruit Picker
     Green Striped Cushaw Pumpkin
     Earth worms - composting worms
     Vegetable Brush Collection
2 points

C:  This catalog should be framed - inside and out - the back and the front - an absolute work of art.  It also has a vintage look.  It didn't matter that there weren't any real photos - the drawings are so realistic.  The size is large like a newspaper - very comfortable to hold while reading.
2 points

D: The flow was just OK - the miscellaneous items were just plopped here and there.
1 point

Winner of the Art Award - I'm just so impressed - see the pictures of the front, back and inside.
1 point

That makes a grand total of 7.5


  1. I'm no garden nerd...Wish I was, though. There are so many benefits! =)
