Is or has Mid America had a sale, and does anyone have a link? My mother died in June, and I totally missed ordering from them this year.

Peace,
Caroline

Copied from the Mid America website .............

"We have reached our order cut-off date for 2020. The website has been disabled so you can no longer order for 2020. Thank you to everyone for your orders and continued support of Mid-America Garden. Orders will continue to ship until they are all out. We are hoping to ship all of the orders left August 17th. For those of you have asked about a sale, yes, it appears we will indeed be running a sale on surplus and stock that we are discontinuing. If you are a current customer you will receive an email in the next few days with the list and instructions for ordering. Please make sure to watch your spam folders for the email. I will post on this page and on Facebook once the sales list is available. We are sorry but the sale is only open to domestic customers, no foreign sales.

I would only have room for a few anyway, unless I culled some more. Sighing!

Could someone please post the sale info from the email with irises being offered? I'm waiting to get my email. For some reason I never make it onto the email blast list.

Yes, TB intro's at $26 is a bargain,but if you have spent over $1000 on iris and daylilies this year,spending another $100 and you already have 60 new iris plus the labor of digging up sod for said - - - - -

Like Tom, I have limited space with 60 new iris and 300 or so all together.So realistically ,I only have room for a few without culling.

Also I got the final 8 I wanted in the 4th MA order as a late order ,and many intro's I wanted and other's on the site are sold out.

These are all the reasons I don't need to ,shouldn't be tempted to look Whistling

Hi Evelyn! I promise to check in soon. I've been so swamped on the farm and with the business. I'm also in the process of building a new 4 bed/3 bath house on the property. It's exhausting.

Thomas was able to send me the list so I'm all set with that.

I saw that the website mentioned a purchase minimum, does that also apply to the sale?

Yes, it's a hundred dollar minimum.
But the intros are in the half off or more than half range.
Many good deals.
