RE: what's everyone ordering for Spring?


Hi Donna,  The owner of Bluebird Nursery is a guy named Harlan Hamernik.  He
goes on plant-finding expeditions in Tibet, China, and Mongolia, mainly.
You might say any time he drives anywhere he's on a plant-finding
expedition, because quite a few of his finds have been along the roadsides
and pastures here in Nebraska, and also in the sandhill regions of Nebraska.
Well, after he finds these things, he has to "prove" them by growing them
for a while, and also he trys to duplicate some of the "sports" of these
plants.  You can find a few flats of his experiments all over the place in
his 10+ acres of greenhouses.  Those plants are what I refer to as Harlan's
specials.
