the new brecks catalog just arrived I am so drooling over everything especially the crown imperials. But truth to tell the list of ones I want would probably include at least 50 percent of everything in the book. And I'm not to sure any of them are drought tolerant. And the tulips didn't make it from the last shippment. I don't think I planted them right. Well maybe I could find just 25.00 dollars of things? I could try? Right like I'd stop at 25.00 lol.

T - treat yourself - think about all that cigarette money you're saving. Find the money and do it! For me, well, I so totally want the crown imperials - but geesh, they're SO expensive! I forgot how much they were in the last catalogue I got, but it was like I dunno $10 per bulb/corm or something rediculous

I agree, with all the money you are saving in cigs, you deserve something special for you! If you had smoked a pack a day then that is $25 in a week right there you are saving!

I was just looking through it and the Mighigan bulb company. I am going to order from both I think. I like the beck's 25 dollar discount and the michigan bulb company has a 20 dollar one on it. I was wondering if you all have any experience with eithor of these companys and their plants. I ordered some mail plants earlier this year and was not pleased wth what I received at all.

I know what we have to do. We have to find out how the crown imperials propogate and work from there. Then each of use could get one color and send the seeds, divisions to the others in the group until we all had all the colors. What do you think is that an idea? Well I'm going to go see what I can find out about them. like their scientific name so I can look on the seed site. I love that site. I wish she had more species on it though.

And did anyone pay attention to the sparkler allium mix on the back page? I want I want I want lol. I am so bad.

Well fudge no crown imperials for me. They like soil that retains moisture all year round. And the smell is suppose to be unpleasant. Guess it was a good thing that they were to expensive to buy without looking up information on them. Of course that just means I can concentrate on the nine thousand other plants I think I might like to have lol.

Anyone know anything about the red carpet border lilies? They look like they would be just charming on my second tier.

Anything that likes those requirements
can be put into a container, ***I used an old
kiddie swimming pool, that had been split and
cracked..*** and filled with a bag of PEAT MOSS,
and some compost and some regular garden soil
or bagged.... and mixed up good..
WATER, WATER, WATER, until the peat moss is soaked
up all that water... water for like 3~5 days straight, flood it, and wait, flood it then wait..
It takes a long time to get peat moss to the saturation point and keep it slightly moist
depending on the container and it's water holding abilities..

But that should work for those types of plants
that like a moist rich environment...

You tempt me Weezie you really do. But there are so many other pretty plants that are drought tolerant that I would also love that I think that is the way I'm going to direct my energies. I just got the new springhill catalog and they have the varigated weigela and the carnaval weigela and i'm not allowed to plant bushes whaaaaaaaaaaa. So does anyone know what the 2nd little picture is beside each description it looks like a trapizoid with a number in it? I can't find the key. It's probably right in front of me I just can't see it.

Okay I'm feeling so left out. No springhill, no michigan, no brecks (well that one's my fault - I wasn't signed up - but fixing that now LOL) Any others I should sign up for? I just want a bunch of catalogues for the pictures laugh

pssst, Mary.. Gardens Alive. (they are kinda like the parent company of just about ALL of these other catalogs. get that one, and then you'll surely start getting all the others!)

Even if you don't want all the organic goodness from them.. it's a cool thing, they usually have a "bug guide" inside.

O.K. so a pack a day is $25 a week? Here in NB a pack of cigarettes is $10.30. so a weeks worth is $72.10. That'll make anybody quit.

I used to spend about 100 per month on cigarettes and that's using the discount on-line stores lol. But due to the state of Virginia's balanced budget policy they will be taking that hundred and probably a little more this summer because they have run out of funds for the cooling assistance program. Shucks. So although I will definitely see the advantage of not smoking monetarially soon it won't be right now lol.

That stinks TK. Sorry to hear it but a big pat on the back for a job well done. That is not easy. I used to work as a social worker they never put enough funds in to those heating and cooling assistance programs. We were always fighting with them for our folks
