|Sensational Salvias: Much More Than Those Fantastic Flowers!|
|Hamilton Square Perennial Garden is one of three large gardens thriving in the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery. It is an all-volunteer labor of love. The concept of a garden cemetery may strike some as unusual, but it is now a much lovelier place to rest in peace or to just visit than in its past incarnation as a derelict and vandalized city-owned property. Hamilton Square has upwards of 50 Salvias. Here are a few with qualities that bring as much joy as their flowers. (753 words - Read the full article)|

|Salvias: Wonderful Flowering Plants|

Some new reviews from the ATP Green Pages:
|qwilter recommended Tropical Plants & More and wrote:
I just received a Plumeria from Tropical Plants & More. It is much larger than I expected and appears to be very healthy. Ken has been more than willing to answer all my questions on how I am to care for my new plant.
The packing was wonderful. No way it was going to be jostled.
|plantladylin recommended Plant Me Green and wrote:
I placed my very first order with Plant Me Green on 9/21/14 and the package arrived at my front door early this morning, 9/24/14. I'm extremely pleased with the large size and health of the plants as well as the careful packing and fast shipping.
I must also comment about their great customer service. I received a call yesterday from a company representative letting me know that one of the plants in my order was beginning to lose its foliage for the season and that it didn't look really great, so they wanted to give me a heads up to see whether I still wanted that plant!
Everything arrived packaged perfectly and the plants are very healthy. I highly recommend Plant Me Green for the quality and size of their plants. I will definitely be a returning customer!
