Re: Zone 10

I don't mind shipping a few things that deserve being saved, though I
realize you were joking to some extent.  I also understand that space is
limited.  Definitely so, here.  But I think anyone who calls themselves a
gardener can find at least one nook or cranny to put a few things.  And to
conserve space, a cutting or two instead of whole plants can work.  However,
I also understand that just because we call ourselves gardeners, we may not
be interested in all-things-gardening.  I don't do food.  Others don't do
overwintering.  Still, I would like to see plants labeled Tender Perennial
instead of Annual as a heads-up to the possibilities.
