I had gotten that clarification too, just put in the part that answered the "other Liz"'s question. 😊

Got the pre-season email on Tuesday, just finished looking up pics and put in an order this morning. I'll post pics of those I ordered when I get confirmation that none are sold out already but all of the ones I wanted are a bit older.

I got the pre-season email, but I haven't opened up the pdfs yet. I am trying very hard not to purchase anything this season. Whistling

I tried and failed, Evelyn. Remembering the high quality of Superstition rhizomes, I just pre-ordered 5.
It could have been much more !

It's a bit more work when there aren't photos. Lilli/ There are lots of 2018 intros on that
list, but few photos I could find.Had to look outside the database. I'm excited about Working Class Hero! That's probably a good thing, considering my budget! (Merry Christmas to me !)

Those are both great choices. I got them this past year and hope to have some pictures to add to the database Crossing Fingers!

Tell Your Children is a beauty - so tempting! But I'm putting on the brakes. I'm going to look up Larry Lauer!

I don't think he will open until February, but I highly recommend Lauer as a vendor.

Roger told me Tell Your Children was one of his very favorites this year when they saw it growing. High praise from one who should know.

Liz - if all Lauer's grow as well for me as Get Back did, I believe I will need to add more of them.
