Looking for ANY flower or bulb or seed that will come back every year. And survive Zone 4. Really into cottage style gardening, so just about anything work. It's a full sun area I'm working on. Would post pictures but ya'll would laugh --after seeing all the beautiful flower beds on here ;-) I do have a shady area but it's under pine trees---Do hosta tolerate this? I will gladly pay postage if anyone can share, either stamps for seeds or Paypal for plants. Thank you for considering ;-)
I could send you some 'Walker's Low" clippings. It's easy to start from clippings, takes a lot of abuse & once it's established it gives you the look of lavender but it's much more winter hardy. I'm doing cottage style too and I like the soft romantic feel this plant has. I'm going to the PO tomorrow morning, I could take another box along with me. :)
Very pretty and it would go nice in my bed! I have never had any of this --I love new and different things! Yes I would love some! And will gladly pay the postage ;-) My address is in the address exchange. Or if you need it just holler, and if you want me to pay with paypal I can to. Thank you so much!!!!
I have some pink flowering Spirea seedlings and nice size Missouri Primrose divisions: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1096/
Both are fast growing and spread well, great performers year round so I never get tired of them. Spirea will be very inexpensive to mail but Primrose clumps are rather heavy so it would be a good idea to use a med or large flat rate box. Or I could do a smaller box. Dmail me if interested
Depends on how many you want. I just checked USPS rates: $11.35 for med flat rate box, 15.45 for large. Or maybe it would be cheaper by Priority but I have to weight it first. I could start with 3-4 Primrose clumps and a few Spireas and we'll see how heavy it is.
Just went to Menards yesterday and they had a bunch of small $1 perennials. They are really small, but the great thing about plants is they grow, right? :) Anyway lots of them we had here are perfect for cottage gardens. Hollyhocks, painted daisy's, coral bells, salvia, blackeyed susans, shasta daisy's... Just thought I would pass on the info so you could check your store if your interested.
Oh I need to make a trip to town pretty close to us. $1 --thats my kind of bargain's! I did get some marked down flower bulbs the other day ;-) And went to a plant sale a lady here had at her house and got 2 iris--She said all she knew was one was purple and one yellow, I got a start of each so I guess will see what they look like ;-)
I have shasta daisy I could get you a start of for postage. Also I plant Dill. The butterflies love it and it's so easy. I also have corkscrew willows that are water rooted and ready for planting. I could send a few of those. Let me know if you're interested.
to start walkers low do you just clip and stick it in water? Or ?
Kathy, you cut a stem of it at the base right above the bottom two leaves, it can be a small branch coming off a main one. Peel off the bottom two leaves, dip that end past the pealed leaf area into water then into rooting hormone, then stick into potting soil and keep watered. It should root in about three weeks.
Almost forgot, I pick new branches of growth off larger branches that isn't very long and hasn't flowered yet, and I pinch off the very tip where a flower would grow to force the plant to put it's energy into roots and new branches.
