They have Jade ll in this catalog, I hope they are as good as Jade. My other never miss favorite is the Kaleidoscope mix of lettuce.
I too was not impressed with Shumway. I do like Territorial and Johnnie's catalogs. They are pricy but have wonderful information in them, I love reading the growing facts and tips.
Do you have any favorite seeds that are an every year order order.
My yearly, or rather bi-yearly or even every third year orders are-
Pole Romano Italian beans (not very fuzzy) Purple Graffiti cauliflower, low acid and yellow tomatoes. It irks me on the catalogs that s&h can be upwards of 7 or 8 bucks for a few packets of seeds that could be mailed in a business envelope so I buy in bulk for the seeds that are known to last and store them well. So far my old seeds have always sprouted, even some as old as 5 years.
This will probably be my year to splurge though as I want some unusual berry varieties and more fruit trees, so I may do a big catalog order for all the odd seed things I have been wanting to try.
Iíll check out the Jade beans and thank for the tip on those.
I did re-write what got lost earlier, but it ended up being a book
so Iíll refrain from hijacking and posting it all at once.
Love love love Johnny's! I keep the old catalogs as reference materials!
They are almost as good as Starks commercial catalog for being informative.
