Yes, There are some seeds in the group that Karen sent to me too. But I wanted to fill the two pots on my steps now. *Blush*

I want to put those Marigold seeds near wherever I end up planting my veggies and some in my herb pots.

I do that too Stormy...these are a but too small to split them though.

I picked up some yellow and red snaps this morning, Sophie is into red all of a sudden, Lovey dubby she picked them out, the leaves are a real nice dark green with a reddish tint. I'll have to go back since I forgot my $10 off coupon Whistling Shucks, that stinks Rolling my eyes.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I have often found particularly with Perennials that buying gallon to 3 gallon ones & cutting them apart is more cost effective and provides you with more mature stable, garden ready plants than ordering the small ones, which are often seedlings that barely survive their journey.

I completely stopped ordering from Bluestone as I never had a shipment arrive without at least one of every selection dead.

People say we'll that's OK because they will replace them. Well, it's not OK. Sometimes they are then on back order or not available at all. Plus, my time is more valuable than having to spend it on the phone trying to resoive things like that.

That is too funny Sheryl.

Ronnie, Are you doing pots of just Snaps, or will they be mixed with other things?

Storm, I'm not sure on the snaps Confused I like to mix things when I can. I wasn't planning on them but couldn't resist when I saw them Whistling

I've never ordered from Bluestone. They seem very popular though. I don't have the patience for perennials, so I'd rather buy local and get them larger. I'm pretty lucky we have quite a few garden centers that offer a lot of nice things.

Sheryl everyone should have at least one type of seed in their purse Thumbs up

Why can't I remember this...is it safe to bring out my tropical hibiscus outside. I can't remember when I did it last year we were so busy closing the shop and getting ready for Joey's wedding it seems like a fog Confused

Ronnie, I always used to wait for May to bring mine out. If I took it out in April, often on a cold snap evening, the buds would abort. Thumbs down

Its so tempting but try this--think that when they o out they need shade at first, and you hardly get shade until the trees leaf out. So that is keeping me from jumping the gun. Last year my plumeria got black tip from going out too early.
