Definitely a 'buy local' cautionary tale.

Well that is a stunning Nepeta. That's too bad about the PDN plants. I had a similar experience with Bluestone Nursery except with was with rose campion. I was supposed to receive a sterile version, and did the the first time I ordered it. I liked it so much I ordered it again but a different variety showed up and tried hard to take over my garden. In fact I still pull out seedlings from that plant. I called and they apologized and offered to send the right plant, but I passed.

I do so love buying locally ... I just wish there were more selection.


​Cindy — We are lucky that we do have a good selection of independent garden sources locally but sometimes you want to be sure to get something and not take a chance you'll find it locally. And these specialty nurseries almost always have something unusual and interesting.

Erin — I emailed my complaint. Maybe I should have called as I never heard back. I decided to just chalk it up to experience.


Whenever I see a Calamint, I just can't help myself from running my fingers and hands through the wonderfully aromatic foliage. I'm that way with Rosemary as well.
