Re: ornamental grass!


Thanks Cathy, I will run it by them.  I ordered more than requested of some
of the other plants they wanted because it enabled me to get bigger plants
at lower prices.  So they had enough to plant.  But they hadn't asked for
much of this, so I couldn't move it up to a full flat to get the better
plants.  Could be that they just didn't really need it.
