Does anyone in London have a small plant of New Jersey Tea that they would be willing to trade?
Hi Mike, I dont have the plant but Richter's in Goodwood ontario sell the seeds for this plant . Here is the link
Hope you find the plant you are looking for but if not then this might be the only way to get what you are looking for .
Just found this info from this link
so maybe seeds would be best way to go........
"New Jersey tea is a drought tolerant species that grows best in well-drained soils with full sun. New Jersey tea is difficult to transplant, therefore propagation by seed is recommended. Seeds should be planted outside in the late fall or early winter. To improve seed germination for spring planting the seeds should be submerged in hot water (180 deg. F) and allowed to soak overnight as the water cools then planted outside"
Thanks Signet :)
I just missed some nice small plants at the Friends of the Gardens sale at UWO but I already had more than I could carry. I went back the next day but they were all gone.
Thanks for the info. I think this would be a great addition to a sunny dry spot, perfect for butterflies.
