Sphaeroid Institute Plant List

List 24.0, 4 March 2014

March Madness List

It's a little early for summer growers and a bit late for winter chillers; but what's an hortist to do if he hopes to afford a big fat koifriend for Bertha the Lonesome Blonde? List a few generalists, that's what, and of course most plants gyrate year-round anyway.

Ordering couldn't be simpler unless it were free and you lived next door. The new USPS tracking system and concomitant services are all very good; boxes reach all parts of the USA in 2 days, 3 at most. Since I invariably depot plants the morning they are sent, their time out of sun and soil is very brief; nonetheless, speculative-amatory mail ordering still worries many people. Perhaps this stems from the mixed legacy of no-can-look-before-leap mail order bridery. We must ask poor Bertha.

Anyway: just email me your wishes and I will email you your reckoning.

Things sell out quickly; even though I'm limited to US sales due to paperwork horrors.

Limits: 2 of each species unless marked with !, which signals 1 per order!
