Lane Forest Products Springfield
I stopped at your site last fall looking for perennials and evergreens I could plant, not kill, were pretty to look at, fragrant and didn’t mind a little shade if possible. I am a total black thumb/novice and haven’t had the best of luck growing plants, flowers, etc.. Well, [Mike B was] working that day and took the time to show me all types of varieties I might enjoy, explaining the needs of each plant and what you thought I might enjoy. I fell in love with the Black Lace Elderberry even though it wasn’t flowered at the time and decided to take a chance.
I am SO HAPPY I did! I was worried about it during the winter when it lost all it’s leaves, I thought it was supposed to, but with my history, I never know! I have planted it in a little backyard garden area I have created along with 2 types of lavender, silver sage, phlox, and pansies, but the Elderberry is the show stopper! It has grown and flowered out to the most beautiful thing I have ever grown, and I owe it to you! Thank you so much for taking the time last year to go over all the plants with me. I don’t regret my purchase one bit, I look at it everyday and smile, and it’s all due to your suggestions. So thank you, thank you so much! You are great at what you do!
