2001 Plant Delights Nursery June Newsletter

Hi folks..it’s us again. We have finished a very successful spring open house. It’s always great to see so many folks indulging in their favorite addiction…plants. We have been busy propagating and hope to have most items that were out earlier back in stock in a couple of more weeks. Our next event is a visit from the American Hosta Society Convention which arrives in town next week to the tune of 450+ people. Once the group departs, it’s back to work on the fall catalog that is due to be mailed in mid-August. Remember that our summer open house is scheduled for July 6-8 and 13-15. This is when we have quite a few out-of-towners that visit for the first time. We look forward to meeting you in person. The gardens have never looked better, so bring plenty of film. We have just added a new summary of our results with winter hardy palms in our garden this winter…check it out in the articles section. Below, you will also find our updated “best sellers” list. Check and see if your favorite made the list. Our top selling plants for the season as of June 5, 2001
