Winter is always sort of a slow time around here--since most of the people here are in the US and it's winter there's not always a lot of gardening going on. And it's the holiday season in the US too with Thanksgiving happening recently and Christmas coming up--I wouldn't give up on things yet.
Still, there has been a gradual tapering off over the last two years on all Salvia forums that I know of. I am not sure if this is because general interest has tapered off, because of drought and the economy, or because people are moving to blogs.
It does seem to me also that things are slower everywhere on this site. I have found a few local blogs I read that focus on gardening in my region. Has anyone found one they particularly enjoy about salvias?
In February, High Country Gardens..ie David Salman sold out to American Meadows in Vermont. Sad...hardly a water-wise institution and no where near the category of High Country Gardens. Official statements at the time stated that David would be 'in-control' and guiding 'progress.'
As per a phone call to the company today...and after only 7 months after the sale, David has nothing to do with High Country Gardens aka American Meadows...sad loss for the customers.
