Once Betty started posting pictures of her new spring additions, I decided to request some of ours to come now instead of early April. Our weather has been very mild and hope that it will continue. We want to share some of our new spring arrivals with you that came yesterday and today.
The first three came from Tim Bell (South Ga.) yesterday. We received Gilded Butterfly DF, Black Tie Affair DF, and Sycamore Fruit Punch DF as the bonus. Tim always sends great plants.
Today we received three boxes from Mary and Phillip Gaskins (South Ga.) They have always sent amazing plants. Pictured below are:
Venus Fly Trap DF
Here Lies Butch SF
Blissful Blackberry Pie (DF) (Adding more fans, one of our favorites)
Grandpa Whiskers DF
Gyspy Of Gascone SF (Received DF)
Heartbeat Of Heaven DF (Adding more fans)
Heartfelt Challenge DF
Orange Cherry Jubilee DF
Victorian Garden Star Bright DF
Nona Of Gascone DF
Mort Morss TF (Received 4 fans, adding more fans)
Glamoureyez DF (Received TF, adding more fans)
Elvis SF (soon to be splitting into 2 fans)
Briar Patch SF
Big Red Wagon SF
The Gaskins sent as a bonus a 2012 Introduction, Sara Griffin Jackson RN DF, a white double that Mary has named for her mother. She said that they do not usually give bonuses. What that equates to is that we spent enough money that we got a bonus! We are thrilled to receive this new 2012 Gaskins introduction. We plan to visit them at their garden in May on our way home from the Florida Mecca.
I have the roots soaking in water and SuperThrive overnight. I will pot them up tomorrow and plant them in the ground once we are past any chance of a freeze. We expect early scapes from these new ones because of the mild winter and warm last month or more in South Ga.
We received an email today that our order from Floyd Cove should arrive Friday. We have also requested our daylilies from the Trimmers and Nicole Harry Devito. We'll show those once they arrive.
