Tim Bell is updating their website to include their beautiful new 2020 intros, and you need to click on Introductions to select the 2020's. I think I just might have to order MANASOTA KEY and possibly FROZEN PATTERNS or WINGS OF SPRING, but I'm hoping they will include more in their descriptions to include parentage so I can make decisions. I seem to remember they also send a catalog, so maybe there will be more of a description for each new intro in the catalog -- hope hope!

Thanks Arlene -- I'll wait until they put on the website that they've completely updated it, and then if there is no parentage info I guess I'll call. I sure wish they used email, but they don't. And I keep thinking their catalog is probably in the mail already too...

There are some really wonderful daylilies and bargains in their General Listing. But it seems like quite a few of them indicate Not In Stock -- bummer! They send beautiful plants, and I've gotten quite a few of my minis/smalls from them in the past -- a great source.

Betty, when I was ordering in late November, Tim told me to ignore the "not in stock". He said his website wasn't updated and that if a plant was listed, he probably had it. I just shook my head and finished my ordering which included 2 that were not in stock. He is a really nice person--just call. He does like to talk to potential customers! Yes, he does send beautiful plants. I have 8 of them in pots waiting to go into the boxes. I started that process yesterday.

I did call, and I just placed my order through their website. I ended up ordering two 2020 intros:

MANASOTA KEY
FROZEN PATTERNS
And one from their General Listing: PINK PLASTIC

Tim Bell said that right now their plants are huge -- I like the sound of that! And he said he could ship anytime now, which I also liked! YEA!!! Hurray!

One thing, tho -- after I placed my order I got back in to check whether their numbers in stock had decreased, and MANASOTA KEY now says "Out of Stock" and FROZEN PATTERNS says "1 in Stock." I hope you're right, Arlene, that people should ignore the numbers in stock. But anyone interested could always call them at their contact number to check on availability.

Great Betty! You did good! The plants I received in November were beautiful! Their rust spray has worn off and one of the plants is covered. We've been busy solving problems with the refrigerator, so tomorrow I'll spray. The other plants remain lovely and I'm trying to get them in the ground while our warm spell lasts.

I received my order from Bell's today, and they sent beautiful, large, healthy green fans! If I can remember, I'll try to get a picture when I pot them up tomorrow. My order was for MANASOTA KEY (DF), FROZEN PATTERNS (DF) and PINK PLASTIC (3F) -- and they included a beautiful DF of WINGS OF SPRING as a bonus. Wonderful order!!! Thumbs up Hurray!

Beautiful Plants. Can you tell us what size pots those are and what the potting mix is?

2-gal. pots, and I just used Miraclegro Moisture Control Potting Mix. And I think they are beautiful plants too - I always get wonderful plants from Bells.
