Re: Re: Monarch Larvae

That's great. My red asclepias are croaking. Poor experiment. I got two
Mexican mint marigolds today to replace them. Also the two biggest
rosemary plants they had to replace my 2 shrubs that drowned in June.
And a big salvia to replace that dead lavender right in front. Plus 4
bags of lava sand. Gonna redo the herb bed this weekend, can ya tell?
