It’s time to go shopping! Seed shopping, that is…. Here are some helpful tips for understanding seed catalogs, and choosing the best crops to grow in your garden this year.
Seed shopping is one of the most fun times of year for gardeners, as we get to pull out the seed catalog and drool over all of the beautiful pictures of the potential crops we could grow this year! Unfortunately, most of us don’t have unlimited garden space (not to mention unlimited time to spend in our gardens), so we’ve got to narrow down our selections before planting season begins.
The first step is to go through your current seed stash and find out what you have, whether it may still be good for planting, and what you are missing. Then it’s time to tackle the seed catalog!
This helpful video shares some tips for organizing your seeds, as well as making sense of all the various types of seeds you’ll find in a seed catalog, so you can make the best decision for what to grow in your garden this year.
