Learn how to read a seed catalog here.
You probably get seed catalogs in the mail at this time of year (and if not, what are you waiting for? Sign up for some!). Seed catalogs are more than shopping goldmines. They are a wealth of information about the plants you intend to grow in your garden.
Although each seed catalog is designed differently, they all contain basic information that can help you choose the best plants for your garden.
Join me in this brief video on how to read a seed catalog. Visit the new Home Garden Joy YouTube channel for more gardening videos (and one trailer for my mystery novel!)
