Gina and Richard August 13,

We grew these callas just for Gina. Happily it all came together on schedule. The blue viburnums had peaked in late July so I used blue dogwood instead and you will see blue Elderberry in the vases arrangements. Beautiful photos Gina! Thanks for sharing.

Advantages of planting in the fall include: larger plants, plant sales and less stress on the plant itself. Your memory will also be fresh about those pesky holes in the perennial border or the period of summer you don't have flowers. So to make it easier we are offering a rare sale on some of our plants at the nursery. For those of you going to the ASCFG Conference we will bring orders to you!
