The 2015 Sample Plants from Terra Nova Nurseries have Arrived!


In full disclosure, these plants were given to me by Terra Nova Nurseries. They’re my complimentary sample plants and I was thrilled when they were delivered to me on Monday while I was sleeping after a 12-hour overnight hospice shift.

This isn’t my first batch—there have been others—but I’ve been a bad blogger, and I’ve neglected to talk about the others in the past. I’m not going to let these delightful new friends fall by the wayside this year. Oh no, no way. This is a great batch of plants!

Let me introduce them here, and then I’ll post later about how their doing…
