Catalog Shopping

January 13, 2014


It’s time to plan and decide what vegetables to grow this spring and summer. Seed catalogs and online versions are available now to inspire you with a wealth of new and unusual varieties not offered in stores. When making your seed selections via catalog (or local nursery), be sure to read the full description.

One of my favorite catalogs is Johnny’s Selected Seeds. It has growing charts, tech tips, variety comparison charts, growing information (covering diseases, insect pests and control, harvest, storage, and culture), resistance codes, and an easy symbol guide that tells you if the seed variety is organic, heirloom, trellis needed, container friendly, and more.
