Today I am offering plants for postage. I have lots and lots of perennials to share.
A medium flat rate box for $15 could potentially fill an entire flowerbed. I will include plant markers with each plant. paypal is gardenbabe@comcast.net
Some of the plants off the top of my head I have available are:
lungwort
hosta
sedum
pineapple scented bee balm
hardy mums
lucifer crocosmia
iris
daylily
ajuga
everbearing strawberries
brunnera
and lots more...

This is so wonderful of you to do! I'm not looking for a box, but I was wondering if you could tell me what the pineapple scented bee balm is. Monarda of some sort, I assume, but I would love to have the pineapple scent.

Thanks!

Theresa, sorry, I have lots of monarda, I just didn't think they were pineapple scented, I thought maybe you had a specific one. They sure do smell good, though.

Thank you anyway!

I'm still not getting exactly what it is. I've never seen a white blooming monarda. Any chance anyone can link me to what it looks like? Sorry to be such a pest.

ok garden friends!!! I am all caught up and am ready to create more boxes for you for postage! $20 for a large priority flat rate box, $15 for a medium flat rate box, and $6.00 for a small flat rate box. Please include your name and address with your paypal payment. addy is gardenbabe@comcast.net Also, please make a list of things you would like and I will try to put as many as I can in your boxes.
Larger plants I have right now are hydrangea-pink, or blue with fertilizer treatment
hardy daisy flowered mum that changes color, starts out white with a bright yellow eye, then as days go by it slowly changes to a pretty shade of pink
croscosmia- a nice bag full
still have lots of sedum ground covers, ajuga, hostas, coleus, joey-annual in the north, perennial in the south, say zone 7 upwards, a couple more annuals in the north, but perennials in the south...unique different than you normally see, one has 1/2 bright pink leaf, and 1/2 green leaf
NOID daylilies
NOID iris
I will be making boxes still for the next couple of weeks.

Theresa, I just today finally picked up your box of goodies. I ended up in the hospital in the wee hrs of monday before i made it to the post office to pick up. I was so heart sick just to think they would not make it til I got out. They did and I want to thank you so much. I especially want to thank you for the red hot pokers, I thought you had run out so imagine my surprise when I saw it Wow!!!!! Thank you and I love my little solar sunflower.
