Last year I had dreams of a beautiful bed of sun loving perennials. Visions of cut flowers were dancing in my head. I decided to go with a color scheme of yellow and pink and worked everything I wanted to plant. Then I started up adding up the numbers realized how expensive plants are. Ouch. To help ease the budget, we ordered from Bluestone Perennials and got tons of plants in lots a great varieties for not much money. Last year they were a bit small when we planted them-
Yeah pretty puny. I was a little worried. OK I was a lot worried.
Still have a little growing to do, but I am amazed what a difference a year makes. We lost a couple of plants to dogs and rabbits but that was an excuse to feed my plant buying habit for some fill ins. So if you have a little patience, you should definitely give plant mail-order companies a try.
That and because they send you magazines in the dead of winter for spring ordering. It’s like plant porn.
