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!
