Michigan shipments delayed
Well, folks, my 22 or 23 hosta ordered from Hallsons will be delayed. They were scheduled for shipment in "early April" but the ground is still frozen at this time.
Which is okay. I can wait a couple of weeks. There will be an order arriving from the Solbergs in NC, I think there is another nursery over in Virginia someplace like Stroudsburg,...
Guess I need to mark locations on Google Map and follow the Weather Channel more closely so I can plan my potting schedule better! I suppose VT (Green Mt) and NH (Mason Hollow, NH Hosta) will also be delayed but they may be in greenhouses or not field dug stock. My Minnesota orders will be delayed as well if they are field grown, right?
So that gives me more time to freshen up the garden arrangement, set up the stadium seating for the pots I can pick up without busting loose some vital organs. I might as well relax and enjoy the spring while I wait for it to arrive up north.
Hmmm, maybe it is time for me to call Hosta On The Hill up near Birmingham and see about placing my order there. It will provide my hosta fix for now. I already know Judy has Alabama Sunrise, which is only available with her. Combined with Alabama Gold and Alabama Bowl, I'll have a nice trio to group together.
