Have you ever had any luck with Astilbe? Also, when is the Galveston County Swap? Did I miss it, already?
You haven't missed it. On May 17, 9:45 They have started posting haves and wants. For the link go to Texas Gardening Exchange.
forget the astilbe-it grows in Alaska & other far northern regions. How was the trade? I went to San Francisco instead.
It was great. I saw a former next door neighbor. That was fun, and her husband gave me lots of horsetail for my pond bog. I also saw an ex co-worker, so that was great, too. My MIL won a little door prize and it was just your regular nice day. The last time I went it rained like crazy. This was better, as it was just a little rainy and the overcast skies kept things fairly cool.
Hope you enjoyed SF. Lots of flowers to see there, I know.
