All this week is Sempervivum Week, and that means everything is Semp themed! All the articles and ideas this week will be about these amazing little plants.
We have a HUGE "not a raffle raffle" coming on Monday, which will feature prizes for 9 winners! Hundreds of dollars worth of prizes have been donated by various companies, and will be given away to the lucky winners of this raffle.
The raffle is free to participate in. Tickets are bought using the acorns you've all accumulated by contributing to the site. Come to the site on Monday to learn the details, and to buy your tickets!
Mid week our podcast will feature multiple interviews with personalities in the Sempervivum world.
All this excitement and more is happening all week long at the world's best social media website dedicated exclusively to All Things Plants.

I was originally given these products as a gift, but they have become a mainstay of my indoor gardening. The KLN product they sell has worked far better for me than any other rooting product I've tried and it stays viable longer than the rooting hormone powder. I use the Bloom plant food for my flowering houseplants and the Grow food for my seedlings. It's liquid so it's easy to dispense. I've tried a lot of different plant nutrition products and this is my favorite.

Prairie Moon Nursery is a great source of native plants. Their Echinacea paradoxa bloomed the first year for me. They were shipped dormant, but they were excellent quality and grew quickly.
|clintbrown recommended Swallowtail Garden Seeds and wrote:
Swallowtail Garden Seeds is always prompt and accurate. I always get excellent germination from their seeds. Check out their Agastache selection. That alone is reason to visit their site.
|MarilynK recommended Jung Seeds and Plants and wrote:
Not the fanciest, not a specialty gardening site, Jung Seeds and Plants is just a down-to-earth garden retailer with a good selection of gardening seeds, plants, and sundry other gardening-related items.
