Well folks, this coming Monday is my last day of sending plants until after the new year.
Couriers are super busy during December and it’s just not possible for them to be as careful with the plants as I (and you) would like them to be. Trust me, I’ve learnt this the hard way (some unfortunate customers learnt this too 😭).
Market wise, I was supposed to be doing Mauriceville Market this Sunday but I’ve had to pull out due to the kids and I getting a cold this week. I was hoping I’d be better by Sunday, but still snotty and have a cough and it is not the done thing to leave the bubble when crook. Bit gutted, but hey, that’s life. I will be at the Greytown Market on the 20th Dec, perfect timing to get your kokedama Xmas gifts!
I must admit I have sold out of a lot of herb plants already this season, it’s always so hard to know how many propagations to make and then you never know how many will strike from year to year. It’s been great that so many people are jumping onto the herb wagon though, they are such wonderful resilient plants to have in the garden.
So aside from looking after my plants and gardens (and prepping for Greytown market) it’s my time to relax and get into the Xmas spirit with the kids, you know a little bit of summer would help getting into that spirit though! We haven’t even thought about what summer clothes we have for this season let alone have thoughts about going for a swim, brrrrrr!
In the new year we’ll be full steam ahead with white sage plants going to new homes, so if you’re on my wait list; the time is coming! Not all my plants are ready at the same time and so I don’t get overwhelmed, I do work through the list in the order of people contacting me as the plants become ready (ie. big enough to send). The list is long this year (every year it’s longer than the last) so if you’ve recently contacted me or thinking of contacting me I cannot guarantee you plants, if you do miss out though I put you at the top of the list for next season. I hope that made sense!
