Lucy Vitols (a little beauty, will shine as well)
Neat & Tidy (looks like a big un)

Jill, I'm glad you got them... Had to bend Neat and Tidy to get it in the box, I was hoping it didn't break... And I know the roots weren't huge on Tea and Crumpets.. but I think with plenty of water, it will thrive... I'd probably pot that one up first ...

And again, sorry for the slug holes... I really have to start earlier next year on the slug control..

We traded several years ago! I saw my name on some of your hosta.. my, how your list has grown since then... I was trying to get some to you that you didn't have...

Catbirdsue,
Please contact me at jimnfrank@comcast.net . I have had some problems with my laptop screen going out on me and I cannot get to my normal email. I need my partners name and address resent to the above email address. I had emailed you a couple of days ago but haven't heard back.

Thank you.

I would like to thank Lelan(ZZTopsoil) for a wonderful box stuffed full of hostas.

I received:
Deane's Dream
Invincible
Jimmy Crack Corn
Toy Soldier
Patriot's Fire
Queen Josephine
Sherborne Swan
Stained Glass

You really made my day brighter. I haven't been able to plant any yet but I did manage to get them all into pots.

I had my back go out on me last week in addition to the laptop going out on me so I am a little behind on my end. I figured out how to use my Playstation3 to get online now but cannot access any of my old emails that were downloaded into the laptop that died.

I received a wonderful box from Margie, Grannyfifty.
She sent
Pineapple Sage
African Blue Basil - smells wonderful
Castor Bean
Cupea Batface - always wanted to try one of these
A beautiful coleus
and 4 hosta
Hillbilly Blues
Carolina Sunshine
Splash - I can't find this in the hosta library. Do you know more about it?
And Yellow Splash - this one, I would love to see a picture of a more mature plant. It is totally different from
Yellow Splash in the hosta library. Is there a dark green edge to your plant. I love the ruffled edge.
Thanks so much for the lovely choices.

" I have put my Heart and Soul into this trade. Bob Olsen said he was in an Allegan Fog and he jusy met Abby, the other day while looking at Old Glory. I am so sorry this is late, I have the Hillbilly Blues!"

I'm so glad you got 3 new to your garden! I love the trades but don't really know what my problem was this time, I'm happy you liked them.
