This is my tenth season in this house and I have "turned a corner" in my garden planting!

Finally FINALLY, the deer are secured on the OUTside and I have killed all the grass and weeds (covered 'em in newspaper before they could seed this year).

And SO it is time for me to place my plants where I want them to stay!

I'll be buying tulips, daffodils, fritillaria, asiatic lilies, irises, and daylilies (in addition to random things that catch my eye....)

Where to shop?

For an Eastern iris garden you might try winterberry gardens. They do have a small web site, but many more in their catalog. Mid-America has medians (as does Winterberry). those are my preference but if you have both tall & shorter irises your season is extended.

If you would like Siberian irises to blend with later perennials, try Joe Pye Weed garden in MA. They also have a webs site (I think jpwflowers.com.)

An interesting source which I haven't seen before. We are trying to cut back, but worth looking at if we are looking for a particular plant.

I had fun at Stoney Creek and Mid-america.
Digital fun, that is.
I saved my preshopping cart to PDF to whittle down later.

Still working on the others....

Always more plants than money!!!!
Start small, let 'em multiply.
And I start other perennials from seeds, too!
