Look at these plants!

First order from Graceful Gardens. I got the box with the 32 little nice deep 2X2 pots with lovely greenery all protected by "peanuts."
Took a while to carefully unpack them, and I repotted them in 1 gallon pots to let them grow a bit. these were taken the next morning!

They are larger yet today. What healthy plants! You have to buy an entire flat, but can mix it up, which I did. No cheep, but already some of the plants are doubled in size and look wonderful.

Excuse the greenhouse, I have got to take time off from the yard to do some cleaning and throwing out there. the square tan pot doesn't belong with the others.

I'm jealous of your greenhouse...and you're saying not to mind it, lol. I have no such space...so when I bought about 35 cell packs of perennials at a sale last week ($1.40 per 4 pack), into the ground they went.

That looks like a lovely order!!

I just have to say, the square tan pot made me think of the old Sesame Street 'one of these things is not like the others'.

Of course, I'm sure the plants don't mind.

Thank you so much for looking. They are growing like gangbusters. Annie, I got (4 of each sort):

Delphinium Guardian Blue
Delphinium New Century Dreaming Spires
Delphinium Magic Fountain Blue
Alcea Hollyhock Halo Cerise
Digitalis Pam's Choice
Heuchera Firefly
Heuchera Palace Purple
Lavender Hidcote

Electric Cottage, I had lusted after a greenhouse for years! Got it for Christmas five years ago, and do love it even though it is currently a mess so you couldn't tell I cared about it at all.

The square tan pot is a cardinal flower - I laughed at the Sesame Street reference...Now the little tune keeps running around my brain:) -
spent the day weeding and mulching the last and very big daylily bed, and I am pooped...and I only got 3/4 of it finished.

I ordered from them last year and was very pleased with what I received. Hope they all bloom great for you.
