Does anybody have a recommendation on where to buy one right now?
check out EBay there is a guy there saling a samples kit of 6 plants (all basic starting plants). the ones I got were really nice. smallest around 6" the largest about 2'. well packed, ifact the post office lost the package for 5 days and the plants recovered over night. Something a poorly packed plant won't do. If he does as good for you as he did for me you will be pleased.
Thanks! I've never bought plants on ebay. I'll look for him.
Hi summeronmymind--I recently saw passionflowers at, of all places, New River Pottery at South Hills Mall in Cary. They were not labeled with a name, were large plants, and selling for around $22, I believe. I haven't seen them anywhere else this year. I just ordered some from Glasshouse Works in Ohio but haven't received them yet. Glasshouse didn't get great reviews on the Garden Watchdog site, but they were inexpensive so I thought it might be worth a try.
Keep you eye on your local Lowe's. They had a great selection this weekend (in Knoxville, Tn.)in the tropical section. They were large, healthy plants (covered in buds) and were $19. I bought Belotii and a Caerulea "Clear Sky".
Picked up a collection- thanks!
