Re: bamboo / choosing plants

Gene: Not in the least disappointed with your answer. Just a further bit
of discernment, please...are all the plants you sell plants that you
yourself grow in your own garden first before offering them to the
public for sale? Is that typical of many private nurseries? Thanks in

Hello Melody,<br> Oh, I don't know as I am all that different than all
of you. I "listen"<br>to what all of you have to say about plants and
your experiences with them.<br>All the other specialized lists that I am
on as well. I subscriber to and<br>read several gardening magazines,
order in the neighborhood of 3 to 5 new<br>books a year on gardening and
plants. All the catalogs, both wholesale and<br>retail.I go to
symposiums frequently. When I give a slide presentation I<br>always hang
around to hear the other speakers as well.<br> Right now I have
three"folders" I am working one for this spring. One is<br>the new
rock/alpine garden I hope to construct this spring. the other is
my<br>woodland garden and some new areas that has been added, finally my
shrub and<br>tree list.<br> I placed my first two orders yesterday. A
mix of new plants for my rock<br>garden that I have been interested in
for some time now, and my woodland<br>garden which is always ongoing. I
hope to locate most of my trees and shrubs<br>while out and around this
spring and early summer at other nurseries and<br>garden centers so I
can get larger sizes. Getting a bit old and need more<br>instant
gratification on trees and shrubs.<br> So.. sorry to disappoint, but
some is impulse, some is keeping an eye<br>out for something out of the
usual. Mostly I just follow my bellybutton<br>around. Same as with the
rest of my life, I suppose.<br> Gene E. Bush<br>Munchkin Nursery &

your business, I'll bet that shopping folder is pretty darned<br>>
thick, isn't it? BTW, how **do** you decide what to buy and what to
pass<br>> on?<br>> Melody, IA (Z
