Kathy, The Shumway catalog most people get is the large newsprint folder. I’m talking about the catalog from the Horticultural Products and Services Div. It’s almost a wholesale-type catalog. Large amounts of seed at a reasonable price. The toll free # is 1-800-322-7288. Check out Hollyhock ‘Black Currant Whirl’! I have seeded in all their various colors of pelleted Lisianthus. I fell in love with these beauties when working in a floral shop/nursery. Long lasting as a cut flower, and useful in weddings as bouts and they can be taken apart and put back together again in corsages. And a word to Rosemarie, honey, it’s the full of the moon and I know you are pregnant and very tired. Please know your gardening friends are sending you best wishes. As my mother-in-law said to me at the birth of my first daughter 43 years ago…….Breathe!
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.
