All Things Plants currently has 25,546 members; how long until you can send plants and/or cuttings to each of us? Rolling on the floor laughing

Okay, most of us are beyond normal driving distance from your humble homestead; any suggestions as to the best places to obtain cuttings or plants?

Ordered Goji from Bluestone Perennials on June 18th and the plants arrived yesterday, June 24...in excellent condition. Thumbs up
I was already up to my elbows in soil up-potting plants and re-potting some of my other plants, so I wasted no time and promptly planted the Goji plants. They will stay in pots for now and later will go to their permanent location.

Thanks Dave for the recommendation. Thumbs up

Yep, Bluestone Perennials was sold out of the smaller variety so these are the taller ones, 'Big Lifeberry' which can grow to 10 feet tall. The instructions tell me I can keep them cut to a height of about 6 feet for easy harvesting. Thumbs up

I am impressed!!!! Those look extremely healthy greene! I see you have potted yours up. I asked them to ship mine as late in the year as they can - that I would like to get as close to fall as possible. Those people are great!!!! They emailed me back & said 'We will be shipping your order the week of 09/08/15.'' Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! PERFECT! I will then pot them up & they will go in ground around the end of Nov. or first of Dec.
