Garden Catalogs

Category: Potpourri | Posted: Thu Jan 08, 2009 4:15 pm

The companies that send these things out must have great knowledge about mailing them to folks who have snow on the ground. It gives folks like me a chance to sit there and dream of 'what it can be or what it will be or even, can it be?'

The last few years I did purchase some new seeds from a catalog and had some fun with them. One of my biggest plans is to find the designated area I want to start them in and broadcast it to those who like to help me weed all these gardens. I think I need to make a skull and cross bones to remind them. I had a tiny little Sweet Pea growing and ya know, it looks just like grass! It got pulled but guess what! There was enough left in the ground for that little thing to come back and show me what it was made of :) I have found that Liatris is the same exact way as daylillies...This is why I started the 'designated area' HANDS OFF area except for me. This has worked and I implemented this just last spring because I thought I'd lose my mind!

I am thinking of not buying anything new this year for several reasons. One, the money and trying to save it. Two, I am in the process of moving a garden and need to see what space I have for what plants. And, three, I don't think I have any room anywhere right now even if I want to buy anything.

So to the companies that send this stuff out at the most appropriate time I say Cheerz! You have the psychology down pat by selling and targeting for the cabin fever people like me and want some bizzare heat wave to show up so we can go out and play in the dirt!

*lol* I can relate to much of what you describe. I'm also drooling over seed catalogues these days. I love the colours in them!

Yup, I totally agree, those catalogs get me through the nasty weather.
