Plants beginning with the letter M — 4 Comments

    Hi Herb, Don’t know if you’d be interested but I just dug up a little over a pound of May apple tubers/roots from my garden where they are competing with my natives and trying to take over. They are so beautiful and remind me of my life in Wisconsin but are just spreading too much. There is way more to dig but I’ve only got that much so far. You can email me back and let me know if you’d like them. I hate to compost them if someone else would enjoy them. Nancy Field, Woodcock Road

    • Nancy. Thanks so much for thinking of me. I would love some. Sorry not to have responded sooner.
      So much to do. Anytime! But if you can make it on a Saturday that is a guarantee I am here.
