|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.)

|Stoney Creek Iris|
I have gotten at least 50 of irises from them. Fantastic!

|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!
