I live with my husband and our two Bouvier des Flandres, Sofie and Mischa, in Washington state at the southernmost point of Puget Sound, amidst the towering Douglas Firs, Cedars and Hemlocks. Thus, I have learned to garden in (and love) the shade.

I have lots of NW native plants and love native woodlanders from other parts of the country. I also have a large greenhouse crammed with tropicals as well as numerous water gardens.

I have been gardening in this location for 16 years, and will 'fess up to having a baaaaad gardening habit...... In other words, I have just about everything that is locally available, and then some... LOL So, please don't be offended if I decline a trade, as I am now looking for just some of the more uncommon or unusual species.

Plus, don't get discouraged if you e-mail me and don't hear back from me right away, as I am rather sporadic when it comes to sitting down at the computer. However, once I agree to trade, I will never miss an agreed-upon mailing date unless there are circumstances beyond my control, in which case you will definitely hear from me.

Happy Gardening!
