RE: June 6 Spring Sale!

Despite the rain and cold, all went well. I picked up a Snow Egret Solomon's Seal for a song (figuratively speaking, of course).

RE: June 6 Spring Sale!

Man I wish I could have went to this.
Iris hookeri is on my list for next year along with Veronica "Waterperry."
So MANY interesting plants.

RE: June 6 Spring Sale!

We keep a mailing list to inform people of the upcoming spring sale. It gets mailed (or emailed) out a few weeks before the sale.

If you would like to be on the list, send me a Gmail by clicking on my name (Leftwood) above. The sale is for non-profit, and someone usually brings V. 'Waterperry' and I will definitely have Iris hookeri for sale again. It is a very popular species.
