Who would like a box of named rhizomes?

I have more work to do, so I need to finish clearing off my tables. The rhizomes have been out of the ground for awhile, so they are a little dry. Some of the rhizomes are on the small side, some aren't. They'll spring back to life once planted and receiving water again. I'm not going to list the names, so it will be a box of surprises.

Also up for grabs are some Mother rhizomes. If you want a mixed box of the rhizomes mentioned above and the Mothers, then please ask for "mixed".

This is for postage only and I'll keep loading boxes until they are all gone. Since this is first come, first serve, I ask that all requests to be made in this thread.

Here's a photo of the Mother's. If you can read the names, you'll see that there are some beauties hiding in there. Some of the Mother's have leafless rhizomes attached and a few are leafless rhizomes. You can see that they are still plump and are starting to sprout out green nubs.

Ignore the top right Mother's, the ones with the paper bag under them, those are all NoID rhizomes. (Unless you want them)

You're supposed to post on here, not PM me if you're interested. It gets less confusing for me...

(Not you Deborah lol)

Hi Rob, sorry for any confusion. Sad If you still have rhizomes and mothers available, I would gladly pay postage for a box. Thank You!

I would love a box if you have any left. I just finished getting a bunch put into the ground yesterday, so I have pots available to refill. That is where anymore will have to spend the winter, as I won't have more bed space ready until next spring. Mothers would be fine with me, or a mix. I am just trying to increase my number of different varities and if it takes another year or so to see them bloom, that is OK with me.
