Re: Free (almost) trees and plants website

That's a good point.  Thanks, Kitty.  : )

Donna, Gardening Angels sounds interesting, but I don't think they are the 
same.  I re-read the article, and it appears the Free Plants organization is in 
Lincoln, Nebraska.

Long Island, NY
Zone 6/7

Eva, I saw this mentioned on the Taunton forum awhile back and checked it
out.  The only problem I saw was the shipping.  You would pay so much for
shipping that the free plants were no deal.  However, you are helping a
charitable organization, so if that appeals to you, seems like an ok idea.
Also, note that they give no sizes.  The tulip bulbs could be little 10cm,
the hostas could be single eyed.  I'd write and ask first.
