I keep forgetting about that coupon! Dutch Plant Farms participates, too. Don't forget that only the "recommended" trees are eligible.
I can't believe it's been a week since Aspenhill and I went nursery-hopping! We took my young friend Meghan (19) and made quite a day of it... 14 hours!!
We started with a nice long browse at Ikea, a first visit for either of them. We had lunch there, too (meatballs and cinnamon rolls!). Then we went to North Creek nursery to pick up 5 flats. After that, we headed west... we stopped at a nursery that Terry probably remembers the name of, LOL, and bought a few perrennials and some 6-packs of annuals. Then we decided to bee-line for Black Creek nursery (the one Buttoneer recommended so highly). It was soooo hard to pass by all the other colorful displays at other nurseries that were right on the way, but the selection and prices at Black Creek were truly outstanding. We finished our day by feasting at The Shady Maple smorgasboard restaurant, then drove home in the rain.
Here's my "haul." I'm amazed we got it all in the car, together with a couple of big Ikea bags and some shelving pieces. I have mad skills! I'm especially excited about several Heuchera hybrids with H. villosa heritage (making them more heat/humidity resistant). I kept looking them up on my phone and giving an exultant "YES!" when I saw the "villosa" in their description.
