For anyone reading this - I placed an order for some nectar and larval host plants from Vincent Gardens and received my order today.

Holy cow!!! The plugs and liners have exceptional root systems. The size and shape of the plants is equally outstanding! The plants arrived in great shape and were packaged better than I've ever seen! I tell you, I've been ordering plants online for years and I've never seen any shipped this well.

The plant plugs and liners are really, really much too good for the price Vincent Gardens is selling them for!!!

I gotta gloat - I made out like a bandit!!! I've seen plants at the local nurseries much smaller than what I got selling for triple the price she has them at. I even went so far as to compare prices to other online plant companies and ebay and every single company I saw had prices that were three to even six or seven times more expensive - and their shipping costs were outrageous.

I am telling you folks - you need to get your orders in now before she has to move them into bigger pots! Considering all that I received and by the looks of the plant size and plug root system it will be any day now.

This is the link for the posting Donna from Vincent Gardens put on Cubits.

I'm telling ya'll - do it now before the peak butterfly and hummingbird season is upon us!!!

You can do it!!!

Hey Cat,
Did your starter plugs do well for you? Was the Asclepias curassavica milkweed a good choice for your Monarchs? I planted over 200 of them in a row crop fashion. Now waiting on those monarch cats!

Donna,

The plugs are working out great. I planted some in my front yard and at the ranch and gave the rest away. The Queens hit them right away but we are starting to see some Monarchs coming through and they are making use of them for pit stops :o)

Not a great year for the Monarchs. I only saw those 6 I raised...unless you want to count the possible sitings...there were a few butterflies I saw that looked like Monarchs from a distance, but couldn't see well enough to really be sure.

Much be the same here. I keep looking, watching and waiting but I haven't seem much activity here either. Thought maybe the Monarch didn't like my milkweed

A hot dry summer wasn't much help either!

Guess they've all been over here in SC. Well, for me I've seen a lot, but this is my first year with milkweed, so hard to compare.
