On this raw rainy Sunday I have been online plant shopping making purchases that I probably wouldnÂt make any other day because my local nurseries are open and fully (or as fully as they are going to be in this economy) stocked but for some reason today I NEED to buy some plants. So here is what I have bought so far; Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris ÂSkylands GiantÂ, Hydrangea serrata ÂHallasanÂ (to be used as a ground cover), Clematis 'Venosa Violacea', Clematis 'Princess Diana'. I am looking for the controversial (???) Lilac ÂBoomerangÂ as I am unable to get it at my local nurseries and apparently it is hard to find.
As much as I have made a good start I am not ready to stop so please help me fulfill this desire to shop and share with me what plants you are buying this year.
