    I love to look in the seed catalogs and get lost in the garden that is in my mind. I can see everything blooming especially the fruit trees and brambles...........and even hear the buzz of bees.

    Hi there Jack! Are you familiar with Missouri Wildflowers? He's located just south of Jeff City. I have never been to their nursery, but get the catalog and periodically he brings plant material to Kansas City to sell.

    srvfantexasflood,no is that a nursery? I have the book (Wild Flowers of Missouri). I buy my seeds mostly from Morgan County seeds. in Barnett, Mo. they have alot of flower and Herb seed that is hard to find, for trees and shrubs i order from the Mo. Conservation's nursery (George O. White State Forest Nursery, Licking,Mo. If Wild Flowers of Mo. is a nursery and they send out a seed catalog, it's probably the only one i don't get. :lol: Jack

    Jack-Yes, Missouri wildflower nursery. Here is a link to their website: http://www.mowildflowers.net/
    He sells seed and plants. The seed is collected off of private and public lands in the area, so you know it is an ideal choice for the area. He has a very good reputation and puts out a great catalog. He ranks the natives in several catagories include landscaping features.
    I haven't heard of Morgan County Seeds. I'll have to look them up.

    svrfantexasflood,Morgan County Seeds phone# 573-378-2655 you can call them and ask for a catalog and they will mail you one.We drive up there in March or April to buy plants and seed,it's run by Amish people and there's a grocery store(Dutch's) up the road from them that sells in bulk that we always stop at.Seems odd seeing horses and wagons, horses and hacks tied up out front and running up and down the road. It gives us a break after being held up on the farm all winter :thumbsup: Jack

    Just want to mention;
    Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds at www.rareseeds.com
    They have a lot of Down home rt.1 stuff, some of the seed is really unheard of, for me at least.

    ""sure glad I got plenty of things to do""

    I thought you were going to say "Sure glad I've got plenty to spend".

    This isn't boredom, this is dreaming. Any way I just placed an order over the internet for herb seeds, echinacea and butterfly weed. If I have any extra seedlings I will take them to a bee meeting as door prizes. Last year they were quickly snatched up.
