I just placed my order and wanted to let you all know that even if it's not on the list of the co-op items they may have it available or have access to the plant you want at wholesale-ASK THEM!!!! I'm glad I did.

Here's what I ordered (copied my post from the co-op):

Okay, I just placed my order with Dusty and I highly suggest that you talk to them because they have other plants available that aren't online -tell them your wish list even if it's not on co-op . . . You will get their amazing prices and find out they have more than you think. Also, I was the first to place an order with them so if you placed your order here you need to contact them directly.

Here's what I ordered:

1-Fiber Optic plant $3.00 ea
1-Giant Snowflake $3.00 ea
3-Chameleon Plants $3.00 ea ($9.00)
3-Parrot Feather $3.00 ea ($9.00)
1-Horsetail $3.00 ea
1-mini Cattails $3.00 ea
1-Lemon Bacopa $3.00 ea
2-Mini Papyrus $3.00 ea ($6.00)
3-Large Umbrella Palms $3.00 ea ($9.00)

1-Panama Pacific $7.95 ea
1-Hollandia $5.25 ea
1-Lemon Mist $5.95 ea
1-Caroline Queen $8.95 ea
1-Double Rose $8.95 ea
1-Perry Giant Sunburst $8.95 ea
1-Hindu $10.95 ea

My total with shipping is 123.00

Spring can't come soon enough . . .

I should warn you of the chameleon plant IF it is the one I am thinking of, I have nic named it Demon Weed LOL you will NEVER get rid of it, I think it stinks too and it spreads REAL bad by runner thingies...

But it is pretty.

Those are really great prices, though, especially on the lotus. When I placed my order a few days ago with another vendor, I think I paid like $22 for each tuber. The Double Rose is the only one I bought that is the same as what MM ordered.

Liz: I thought we mentioned this co-op to you a few months ago. The plants are great, and if you kill them you don't feel a need to kill yourself as well . . .

Frilly: What zone are you in? I have a neighbor who buys these and they always die over winter.

I consider myself to be zone 5.
some would say warmer, but we have occasionally unusually cold spells that some plants might not make, so I buy better safe than sorry.

I remeber the mention about a month ago, but then I ended up placing my order like a day before the co-op opened! I don't like to cancel orders without a good reason and I did order a few that TWL do not carry so...hopefully what I did order will not die next winter. I'll buy at least one lotus from the co-op next year, in case I have casualties, since I won't really know until spring and by then it is too late to order lotus tubers.

I know some people put the lotus pans in a fridge over winter so they don't freeze outside but still receive a chilling time. I can do that for the three smaller varieties, we have an extra fridge in the basement, but the big two are going to have to rough it in the pond because their containers will be too big.

Frilly-I will plant the "weedy smelly guy" in a container and then put it into the ground. Hopefully that will contain it.

Did anyone notice on the co-op page that the owners of TWL didn't like that I mentioned that you can buy off the list and the prices are great. The male owner (Dusty ??) took my order and I'm guessing he made a boo-boo with his "Missus" by giving me wholesale on Fiber optic and that other lotus.

Yes I have learned that anytime there is a Missus and a male combined in some operation, they will have boo-boos.

Off topic, but I ordered 4 blankets from a seller on Ebay. Seller= Missus.
Received package--only 1 blanket was right lol Packer=male.

But I did get it all sorted out and now everything is good.
that is what happens when there are too many cooks in the warehouse lol

well, boys will be boys ;)

I bought some of those heavy korean mink blankets. The ones that usually have animals or ball team logos on them. They are very warm. My kids like them and they last forever.

But they are about $50 each plus the shipping. !!

Mink blankets-never heard of them what do I look them up under? I bought my son a weighted blanket on there years ago and he and I both loved it so much I now make them for the family. They feel so calming to people with sensory issues.

Yes, I cannot sleep at night without the weight of the blanket now I am used to it.
I seen some weighted blankets for sale for therapy use, boy are they expensive!
Go to Ebay and look up korean mink blanket. Or polar fleece blanket. Some people interchange the names. I just bought a blanket from someone else on there and expect to get it next week, if you would like I can d-mail the seller to you when I get the blanket, if it is good and such. The seller I just bought from had good blankets, but she sent the wrong pattern, She fixed it though, paid shipping and was very nice to me. I gave her my phone number and she even called me.
If you want her user ID just let me know and I will d-mail you.
They were very reasonable price also.

Dusty is doing the sale again this year - $1 above wholesale. And I need more tropical waterlilies since I always forget to bring them in until after the pond is frozen. They don't like the cold water, but then, neither do I.

I planted the chameleon plant in dirt and it is INVASIVE big time.
However I tried it IN my pond, w a liner so it couldn't get out, and it did very poor. Someone told me it would grow in straight water, maybe it was the full sun that killed it? I just know it didn't make it in my pond. At least it appears to have died late summer. I guess I shall see if any of it comes back this spring. Right now it is all frozen lol

I couldn't find the co op forum either (probably a good thing at this point :-)).

Diane - I know that Pondlove was looking for TWL co op information previously. Can you either post a link or send a Dmail to myself and whomever else would be interested?

Thanks
Carolyn
