Dear friends and valued customers, our inventory has been updated and we will resume shipping the week after Labor Day. The nursery also will be open to the public on weekends starting September 7. We have 2 new rare selections, 'Beautiful Susan' and 'Owen Rogers', and have added 'Monique Lemoine' and 'Red Pixie' to our lineup.
It's been a tough summer! Cataract surgery, my nursery helper left after 3 years, and I think the cuttings I'm trying to root this year have been too wet again. But I made a wonderful new connection with Charle-Pan Dawson of Cherry Valley Lilac Farm in upstate New York, and I hope to be able to offer rare lilac cultivars in a few years. I am adding 'Owen Rogers' and 'Beautiful Susan' to my line-up this month, for you lilac fanatics who want the lilacs no one else has. The plants are looking great and I will start shipping again after Labor Day when it's a bit cooler.
