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 its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
