Closed up shop. Wish they had offered a big sale before they did :-(

Awww, I hate to hear that. I have purchased from them over the years, but I have to say, alot of what I bought didn't necessarily do well in my garden. Most of their plants were for high elevations, where it might be dry, but not nearly so hot as here. I think my clayey soil was an issue too.

Just found this out on the SW Forum. Debndal, you're probably right about the heat issue with some of perennials, but it can get plenty hot in some parts of NM too! Clay soil is also predominant here in Santa Fe, so there might have been some other factors at play.

Lucas, I'm still hopeful that there will be a sale at their store locations here in NM. Sorry about the loss of the mail-order side of things, which was probably the best part of this company (the stores were always overpriced outside of sale times).

That is really too bad. I loved the plants I got from them (although I only bought on sale ... )
