Re: Selby plant sale

So nice to hear the progress in Z7.  Just waiting with bated breath for
spring to really arrive in Z5.  The Dutch crocus are now up, plenty of buds
on the Hellebores, and all kinds of buds just aching to make their move.
I'd like to uncover the overwintered pots, but we will have a few nights in
the teens this coming week, so I will wait a while longer.
