All this coming week will be Roses Week, and that means that all our articles, ideas and tips will be roses related. In honor of the week the entire site will carry rose banners in the logo header.
Tune in mid week for our podcast which will feature an interview with Michael Shoup, the owner of the Antique Rose Emporium.
Additionally, early this week we will be hosting a huge "not a raffle raffle" with lots of great rose-related prizes, including several books and a very nice package prize from our friends at the Antique Rose Emporium. Raffle tickets can be bought with acorns rather than dollars, so it's free fun for everyone. Come to the site on Monday for more information on the raffle.
All this excitement and more is happening all week long at the world's best social media website dedicated exclusively to all things plants.

When Bluestone changed to the coco pots I was so disappointed. I love their "3-paks" because I could order with my friend and my daughter and we could each have one, plus they recommended planting in threes. Their prices went up also, since we used to get three plants for what they are now charging for one, and yes, they may have been a bit smaller plants, but they were always very healthy and I would rather pay less and get a bit smaller plant that I can watch grow. I have still ordered from them but I also have to remove the coco pots because I actually found them to be too restrictive and when I did plant with the, the plants did not thrive. They do have a large selection. Unfortunately, they used to be my first go to for ordering but not since they switched to the coco pots.

October 2012 -- Another good source for heirloom and organic, non-GMO seeds. Seed packets are loaded with more information than any I've ever seen. Good informative website too.
