I have far too many brugs to bring them all in for winter. A recent heart attack is forcing me to slow down. I have 5 or 6 well established brugs looking for new homes. I would normally just take cuttings and ship, but am having surgery Oct 8 so need to either find new homes for these or leave them out trough winter.

I live near Dutchess County in NY-would love any brug!
How far am I from you?
Sorry to hear about your heart attack

RE: wanted: any one here from nny??? have brugs to share.

I am not sure, I am 65 miles north of Syracuse. Trust me, i have driven much further for brugs. I drove almost 200 miles for my first one. These are good sized blooming plants. I have a wonderful collection, about 165 named plants, but they just all can't come in for winter. I have many many with seed pods so they have to stay, have about 70 nice seedlings which also have to stay. I m not keeping any that I can;t use in my breeding program, which is about 9 or 10. I can share cuttings of the ones I am using but am just not up to packing and shipping this year. I am scedualed for surgery Oct 8. I will have everything sorted by then and any that are not going to be used for breeding will be ready to go.

My heart problem makes me very light headed and I have fallen a few times. I am just not going to risk traffic and standing in line as post offices.

I also have window boxes filled with rooted cuttings that I was going to take to a swap in Fl, but now I can't go. I sure hate to see al of these wonderful plants have to freeze.

I may have my Dh mail a few to my brug buddies in Fl, but trust me, he is not going to be very happy about it. If I can get him to take two it will be an accomplishment.

Let me know if you want some, you are welcome to come load up.

Thanks .Syracuse is 4 and a half hour drive-am flying there Friday for a one day conference.
I am tempted to make the journey again for the Brugs
but it is just too far away.
I appreciate your offer+ wish you a speedy recovery.

I live in Pulaski and would love to get a few of your plants if you are still offering them. I'd be happy to get them as soon as you have the time :)

My sweetheart had heart surgery in March so I understand how hard it can be to deal with things afterwards, as well as before.

You can contact me at

I'd really love to go and get some of your brugs but from Seattle it is a little too far. What a pity! Anyway, thanks for the offer and tons of luck with your surgery. Take care
