Kris runs a small operation preserving old southern heirloom bulbs. She is a lover of plants and it shows after a lengthy conversation with her on the phone. I called to thank her for the freebie which was the best and the biggest thing in my order! Can't beat that in this day and age. She is pretty close to where I live and obtains bulbs from old homesteads in the north Louisiana area and also rescues bulbs that are about to be bulldozed. I will order again and probably visit her someday. She even put a nice personal note in the box with the bulbs. That again is almost unheard of today.
