Trip to the Nursery

This morning Dave and I headed to our local nursery (Louisiana Nursery) to browse the clearance plant section. Since it's the end of summer, the nursery had all annuals and perennials on sale. I picked up two Cat's Whiskers, two burgundy Gaillardia, and one red mum. We also bought carrot seeds. The Gaillardia was a steal at fifty cents!

I wanted to get catnip, but they didn't have any. My cats love it! I also wanted to find Pentas, but I only found the dwarf and I wanted the full size. I'll look for them again in the spring.

Yesterday I found Agastache 'Heatwave' at Lowe's. They had a huge selection of them and surprisingly they were all in good shape. They must have just gotten a shipment in. In Louisiana, Agastache can be hard to find in garden centers, so when I saw them at Lowe's I had to get one.

  1. Mary, I'll be interested to hear how the Agastache does for you. I'll have to run by my Lowe's and see if they have any.
