BTW, if your garden is subject to visits by the local deer population, keep in mind they consider pansies to be caviar, fine Russian vodka and Cuban cigars all rolled into one. i.e. they will level your garden in one night.
Thanks for the link. I've visited their website before but never looked to see where they are. I'd like to start a shade garden and they have a great selection. It would be great to go and see the plants in person but I wonder if there is anywhere closer that has a similar offering. I don't think I could get DH to agree to a 3 hour drive to a large nursery (where I could spend HOURS looking at plants) and then a 3 hour drive home. He might call the police claiming to be kidnapped. LOL.

We did have deer eat our roses earlier this spring and they haven't been back to the landscape since. I'll cross my fingers for the pansies!!

OMG, when I finally opened the thread after reading "chubby hubby" for the longest time, I felt like a dope, didn't think anyone else out there could have seen it that way too.....maybe I read it as Chubby hubby since I HAVE a chubby hubby?

If you make the trip to Park Seeds, don't forget Wayside Gardens.
