Sorry, I missed posting a couple of recent plant deliveries here. I ordered so many plants in the spring that I have not ordered any new plants until this month, but if you have come into the nursery you would know that already. I have been posting to Facebook, but a customer reminded me today that not everyone is on Facebook. So, here are the new plants I received in July.
