As promised, I have a new Plant Availability list. That warm weather I was counting upon to bring on a whole lot of new species – didn’t happen. There are a few.
I will be making a delivery to the pick-up point in the west-end of Ottawa on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 13th, with a stop around noon in Arnprior. If you would like order plants for this delivery, please email your orders to us by 5 pm Monday, May 11th. You will have other opportunities – I plan to be delivering again to Ottawa in about 2 weeks. We still have not heard how the Ottawa Farmers’ Markets will be operating this summer.
I am now out of a few species. Early orders took all I had ready of Skunk Cabbage, Pearly Everlasting, and Virginia Waterleaf. Not to worry, there will be more of those available in a few weeks. However, I am out for the season for Wild Ginger. I have had a hard time building up a good supply of Wild Ginger. Folks blessed with the right sort of soil can get a thriving colony of Wild Ginger going and pot up divisions and volunteers, but our poor sand is not really what Wild Ginger wants. It grows in our area, just a mile or two up the road, in an area of slightly richer soil.
