Tips for Hardy Gardeners: Gardening Catalogs

The holiday season might be behind us, but for gardeners there are days of flipping through catalogs and circling desires still ahead.

For Tom Kasper, this is a chance to think about the past season's garden while also looking ahead to the coming spring. "There's just something so enjoyable about sitting with something warm to drink on a cold day... and looking at what you're going to put in your garden," says Kasper of gardening catalogs, many of which start showing up this time of year.

A few things on Kasper's wish list include brown peppers, vibrantly colored carrots, and seeds in pellet form. The seeds come in a celluloid pod which makes it easier to evenly distribute. This method also means less thinning when the vegetation starts to come in, and ultimately fewer wasted seeds.

You can hear Tips for Hardy Gardeners every other Tuesday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
