Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours and hope you are enjoying a great holiday season. There.s not much gardening going on in the colder zones, but down here in NC, we’re still re-arranging plants and beds in the garden in between rain showers. We’ve now had over 7.5″ of rain here at the nursery in the last 4 weeks and they tell us we are still in a drought… bah, humbug! We can’t wait for you to see the dramatic changes in the older section of the garden when you visit for spring open house… very exciting stuff and lots of new plants.
The 2006 catalog came off the printer Friday and are now being folded, stapled, and prepared for mailing, which is scheduled for years end. We hope you enjoy perusing the new catalog as much as we enjoyed preparing it for you.
We’ve finished tallying the votes for the Top 25 contest and congratulations to Shari Dyson of North Carolina, who won the contest for 2005. Shari was the only entrant who scored less than 1000 (897) to win the prize…a $250 PDN Gift Certificate. The top 10 finalists broken down by states were: NC-4, CT-1, GA-1, MD-2, IN-1, PA-1. The 2006 contest will begin as soon as the new catalog is posted on line January 1, 2006. Remember that eligible entries must be received by February 15, 2006.
