The Peter Principle
In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to the his level of incompetence.
* In time every post tends to be occupied by someone incompetent to carry out its duties.
* All work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence.

Typical Pine

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.

Special Order Perennial Grasses

Ornamental grasses are ones that you (usually) don't mow. They are grown for their leaves and their seed heads. Many can be harvested in fall and dried for winter arrangements.

My suppliers have a few annual grasses. They are included in the Annuals page.

Note that on the small sizes of these, in 3.5 and 4.5 inch pots there is a minimum order of 4 of a given type.
