Warning! The disease problems in gardens from the past two years has been attributred to mass produced vegetable plants. It is best, if you can, to buy your plants from a place that started them on the premises from seed -- not mass shipped.

Having just bought some plants, I would like to encourage readers to visit Pickering Valley Feed on Route 113 in Lionville. Don't leave without talking to TOM there. He is an amazing font of knowledge on all matters pertaining to plants. Bring photos (we took some on the cell phone and brought those) and tell him about the conditions and he will recommend plants, how many, and give you great tips on caring for them. I believe he's there most evenings but is off on Saturdays. Well worth the trip and time to get some healthy plants, the right kind for your needs, and incredible free advice. I feel like we've hired a landscape designer without the cost!
