Re: woes

We've had plants dug up a few times in the display gardens.  Interestingly,
someone dug up the large Fernleaf Peony - and sort of replanted half.  A
thief with a conscience.

I'm surprised our nursery hasn't had stuff taken before.  Hey, they're
already in pots.  Just pick them up and go.  These two beds are right by the
parking lot - the back of the parking lot - sort of out of view.  But the
university doesn't like to see our stuff so, that's where we are.
