Barb do you need nursery pots??? I have a ton of the I need to get rid of 1 to 5 gal, most 1gal. I am free up to Sept 20th as of now except for the 15th and them hoping to finally have 3 disk replaced in my neck on the 22nd as long as there are no hurricane in the Gulf. You and Kay can make a quick day trip. I would love to see you both. It has been a long time lol
Donna, I need some larger pots. I can't believe I've used all my pots up I had so many. Please save some for me. One of these days I'm going to get over there.
