Just got a notice my Rosy Dawn order has been shipped. Good news. Going to have very windy weather for the next 4 days so they will have to spend a few days in the garage. But I will unpack and place in potting mix and place in a sunny window in the garage. That will give me time to make labels.
Pirl, they are just like Smitty. If I am in the garden, they are in the garden. They go until I stop. Well I went from 9am until close to 5pm with a helper. When I came in and made myself a cup of tea, and sat down on the couch to catch up on the daily news, they crashed and still have not moved.
Oops is right! That's very funny. I do the bathing, feeding, medications but Jack tries to walk Smitty. He usually makes it a few hundred feet and then turns around to go home.
The coleuses in the house are growing so well. I'd urge anyone who grows them to take cuttings long before frost so you can hold them over the winter indoors. That leaves you free to order more from Rosy Dawn next year!
Just wanted to report back on my first order with Rosy Dawn Gardens and let everyone know how happy I am! The plants arrived in fantastic condition, and were much larger and healthier than I was expecting. The packaging was excellent, and I'm AMAZED that the package made it so fast! They shipped it on a Saturday and it arrived today (Monday).
I'll definitely be ordering from Rosy Dawn again! I'm a VERY happy new customer!
My order arrived yesterday. YAY!! 37 plants + 4 bonus plants.
About 15 of them are for my Mom. That's been her Mother's Day gift for the last 5 years or so.
I used to have her go to the website and pick out what she wants. She never makes it past the A-D part of the catalogue. "There's too many!!! I can't choose!!". she says. LOL!!
Now I pick them for her. As long as she gets Duck Foot & Inky Toes, she's happy.
We have them in peat pots for now. I'll start planting them this week.
LOVE me some Rosy Dawn!!
Because we don’t have such a professional Coleus supplier in Taiwan. I took the risk of placing orders to Rosy Dawn from Taiwan (my sister helped me to transfer the package to Taiwan) twice. The second ordering of 13 plants is successful because my sister added some water to extend their survival. Although the delivering is rather expensive, I will surely place a larger order next time!
I have checked the supplier list of coleus on this webpage. Among the 7 companies, Gephardt’s Farm and Greenhouse has been closed recently. What a pity! Only Rosy Dawn and Glasshouse Works can be real large coleus suppliers, while I think Rosy is better on internet selling service, they provide more detailed photos as well.
