My Hortico order came

My Hortico order came, and the shipping was one hundred thirty dollars. Ouch. There were a few substitutions and backorders, but everything seemed in good order. I could have saved close to three hundred dollars not including gas and tolls if I drove there to pick it up, due mostly to the shipping charges and the exchange rate.

About the Author

Until recently, Rosemarie Hanson gardened in the alkaline soil of New York’s North Country. Now she gardens in the Finger Lakes region of NY, where the soil is acid and the deer are a plague! She is particularly interested in fragrant plants, old garden roses, tulips, gardening for kids, and kitchen gardens.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
