A company that I buy hosta from, The Hosta Farm, is having an 'emergency' sale. Last winter, they had a devastating snowfall, which crushed most of their greenhouse space. If that wasn't enough, his daughter was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Needless to say, the guy is in a real bind.
The 35mm plugs of the following varieties are being offered for $3.85 each. If you buy hosta mail order, you know this is a fantastic deal. He is planning on shipping these the first week of July.
- Abiqua Drinking Gourd
- Big Daddy
- Blue Angel
- Blue Hawaii
- Blue Mammoth
- Earth Angel
- First Frost
- Great Expectations
I was thinking maybe we could do a a couple of group buys and save on shipping costs. We can organize by proximity for pick-up. For example, I can receive for Gaithersburg/Rockville/Silver Spring/Frederick, etc. If someone wanted to set up for PA, NY, DE, etc. that would be great.
I can put the initial purchase on my credit card, and you can pay me when you pick them up.
He is also offering a 'buy now, use later' deal on gift certificates. If you buy a certificate now and wait until fall to use it, he will double the value. $20 gets you $40, etc.
If you are interested in the gift certificates, you can buy these directly at http://www.thehostafarm.com/cl...
