    I'm looking for applemint starts to get a little patch going. Does anyone have any they'd like to send me, sell me, trade me or know where I can get some?

    There's no such thing as a little patch of applemint! It gets about 4 feet tall in my patch and has crowded out all its buddies over the last few years. It is so great for butterflies and bugs and the birds eat the tiny seeds in the fall.

    I would be happy to send you some, except it is buried in snow and ice now. Let me know in April when it is coming up and it will ship safely without getting frozen.
     

  3. Terrific! Thank you! I'll either grow it in a contaier or along the edge of the forest -- not in my actual garden. Where are you, by the way?

    I'm in north central WV.

    The snow on the ground is now officially packed down by the rains into ice packs. Makes for treacherous walking right now. It hasn't been good temps to even plant my holiday pine tree yet.

    Let me know by PM when it is warmer weather and I will send them off to you.
