Need to buy Endless Summer in Mass.

Can anyone tell me where I can buy Endless Summer in Mass?

I just called Mahoney's in Winchester, the "biggest and best in my local area" who told me a delivery would be in on June 11, and now they are saying it won't be here til mid July.

Any ideas?

Did you try Weston in Hopkinton? Give them a call. These are pretty expensive -- expect $40+.

Supply and demand.
Sometimes the nurseries can't fill a truck and have to batch deliveries with other local nurseries. Also the trucking companies may be reluctant to send out half loads when they can get several shipments out in the same time frame on other business ventures. Availability of certain plants can be shorted with the grower overselling his inventory inadvertently. There is All Summer Beauty, another blue that blooms on new wood, similar to Endless Summer. If you don't find an alternate source, you can probably go on the waiting list, better later than next year.

Try Kanes in Peabdy, ma. route 114 or Corliss Brothers in Ipswitch.
If they have them let me know.

Cupp & Cupp Nurseries on RT. 110/2A in Liittleton has them for $30.00. They are a wholesale nursery open to the public and have great prices on everything.

Called Corliss brothers this morning. They ran out a month ago. They also are expecting to get some in in July. I'm number 75 on the waiting list. If I find any before than you will be the 1st to know. If you find any please let me know.

Picked up 2 at Chapman's in Manchester by the sea this morning. They may have more in their Beverly Farms store.They had about 6 left in Manchester. The shrubs are small 1 gallon size but the price was right.

I didn't know there was a Chapman's in Manchester by the Sea--where? I work at Gordon College.

Take a look at the ES thread on the hydrangea forum. Many folks think they're a dud. After reading them, I think I'll wait another year, rather than pay inflated prices for something that isn't as good as its reputation.

Corliss Brothers had a sign out this morning that Endless Summers had arrived and were available.
