Love Alyssums

They are always prompt answering the phone. I enjoy placing my orders over the phone with them. Also have fast delivery on my order.

A Pollinator Magnet...

Alyssum is a must have in my garden. I have a community garden plot and the Carpet of Snow and the Royal Carpet (placing my reorder now) border two of the four sides. The tiny flower is so fragrant and fills the air with its mildly sweet scent early morning and evening. I enjoy seeing bees, hover flies and all sorts of pollinators buzzing around and guarding my veggie plants.
