The winter weather here has kept the crop under frost blankets for weeks now. We will ship when we can, and it is safe to do so. I know the warmer places get impatient, but it has been too cold here to remove the frost blankets.


I hope to get the Sold Out List updated soon when I see the crop again. Don’t forget to check that list before ordering.


We are still caring for my elderly mother with Alzheimer’s, so my nursery time is more limited. Have patience. I am doing the very best I can for you!!


Thank you,  Karla Lortz


Phone: 360-427-5318, 800-294-3284 if  you want to order by phone. If it is easier on you if you have a large order, have questions or the cart is slow or giving you trouble,  go ahead and call it in.  Hours are 9 AM—3PM PST for mail order.  Call again if you don’t get me. 


I am bad at returning calls due to not enough time.  Our voice mail is always full.  I am much better at e-mail. (Please do not bother to send me a nasty e-mail and lecture me about telling you I do not return calls. It is the pure and simple truth! I am one person wearing many hats. The return call hat has been lost!)


All orders are charged a $3 packing fee on the final invoice to help offset the costs.  Priority Mail costs just went up. Will be working on putting up those changes. Thanks!
