Bluestone 2008: a toe in the water
Thanks to all this early spring travel I’m planning (Sicily, Austin), finances are not as healthy as they could be, so I’m getting a slow start on plant ordering. Yet I could not let Jan. 30 go by without having taken advantage of Bluestone's early bird 20% off special. As well, the solidago “Peter Pan” was a full 50% off. I also have some agastache Blue Fortune, and some verbena bonariensis coming. These are all pretty common perennials/self-seeding annuals, you’ll say, but I don’t take chances on stuff coming back up (invariably where I don’t want it) and the Bluestone prices are much better than I’ll find locally.
Once my fortunes rebound, I’ll be ordering some more from them and from Select Seed.
